3.84/5 rDev +0.5%
Pours an effervescent crimson with 3 fingers of tan head. Crazy lacing & head retention
S: Copious amounts of dates & figs, a little bit of dark cherry & brown bread.
T: Follows the nose, a little bit of rye spicyness balancing the fruit out up front, herbal hops as well. A little bit of booze, figs & peppery rye, plus dryness as this warms & more leafy hops & a bit of toffee. Finishes cakey, with some dryness, faint pineapple notes, leafy hops, a little bit of Bartlett Pear & figs
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, skews fruity, thickens up once warm, balances out fairly nicely
Sort of an odd duck, works as an English Barley Wine for the most part

Tried this at a beer fest this weekend and took some notes. Luckily this was beofore I had too much to drink so I took some good notes.
Rich amber and mahogony with a manilla creamy head. Not too much carbonation but maybe because I was expecting this to be Belgiany for some reason. They list it as a barleywine and rich and complex it for sure is.
THe nose has a nice freshness of hops without being too American Barleywine. The initial taste is the same. After the beer washes over the palate the rye spice and earth come through.
This beer is well-balanced but I would like a bigger nose from it. The finish is dry and complex.
Overall a really well-made beer. I can't believe its 9.5%. It is quite drinkable. I would buy a bomber of this at the store.

A - Poured out a clear, copper color with a one-finger, tan head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.
S - It smelled of rye, bread crust, roasty malt.
T - Good malty sweet taste with some toffee and bready notes.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium to full bodied ale.
O - This is a nice barleywine. One of the better brews from Cathedral Square.
