Poured deep mahogany that lightens to dark ruby on the edges when the light shines through. There is a fleeting bit of tan head to cap it off before the alcohol tears it into the depths. The nose is heavy with wood and alcohol and the burnt brown sugar and dark fruit scents of barley wine. There is an earthiness reminiscent of wet leaves and dirt that adds a rustic and aged feel to the package. The flavor is notably sweet. Sweet enough to demand a leisurely sipping experience to avoid feelings of cloying sugar. The alcohol is powerful on the back end and is a second reason to take it easy and enjoy the ride. The barrel is definitely in the mix and adds another dimension of complexity to the over ripe dark fruit tones and sweetness. She is crusty and raw. The mouthfeel is heavy. The sweetness seems to make it like nectar. Overall this is a decent barleywine. The sweetness is the only element that schemes to detract from the total feel. Take your time and enjoy.

As my first review this may not be over the top. what I can say is this is very delicious. the dark fruit flavors are wonderful if not almost overly sweet. Akin to overly ripe fruit as mentioned above. Very little carbonation, lacing and head. could be because its from a growler filled a week ago. The barrel aging on this is awesome. I do happen to like the sweetness though mabe just slightly more than what Id consider perfect. overall I love thi. I would definitely drink it again and again and highly recomend it. Odd Side Ales is quickly becoming a favorite (new) brewery of mine.
