4.05/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dark reddish amber color with one finger of head that slowly settled to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

The aroma is not surprising for a big barleywine. Plenty of caramel and toffee with fruity hints of cherries and apples. The alcohol is also readily apparent.

Sweet malt permeates the palate that is then cleansed by the alcohol. Thick caramel flavor along with fruity esters are somewhat balanced by hop bitterness. The hops add some citrus flavor. Big alcohol flavor in the finish. Pretty hot.

Superbly carbonated. Allows the flavors to really permeate the palate while still maintaining life. I have been with Fulton and their carbonation standards.

A real sipper and best shared with a friend or two. A little too hot with alcohol, but still very enjoyable.

Serving type: bottle

4.24/5  rDev +9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Pours a deep brownish amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Very slight off white head which quickly fades away. Lacing is light.

Smell: A rich, bready, and fruity malt forward aroma with good hints of caramel and fruit esters. Toasted malts with hints of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, grains, yeast, and cracker. Big fruit hints of apple and cherry along with some dark fruit hints of raisin, fig, plum, and dates. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Also some wood like scent and some vanilla hints. Subtle earthy hops in the background. A nice fruity aroma.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a sweet, bready, and fruity malt driven taste with good notes of caramel malt and fruits. Bready toasted malt with some upfront notes of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, butterscotch, vanilla, grains, yeast, and cracker. Big mix of fruit flavors with some apple and cherry. Dark fruit undertones of plum, raisin, fig, and dates. Sweet notes of brown sugar and a little molasses. Some woody notes as well. Light taste of earthy hops in the background. A pretty good malt forward barleywine taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and somewhat syrupy. Some alcohol is felt but its very smooth considering the 13.2 ABV.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a Barleywine. More like the malty British style with some nice fruity notes.

Serving type: bottle
