Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.
A - Pours a muddy amber brown with a thick head that settles quickly.
S - The aroma is of dried fruit like plums or raisins.
T - Sweet flavor of raisins with the alcohol noticeable on finish.
M - Medium mouth feel with low carbonation.
O - I really enjoyed this big, boozy Barleywine. Here's hoping Clown shoes brings it back next year so I can buy more. Next time I'll get an extra bottle for aging.

Pours dark brown with some red hues and a thin light tan fizzy head. Smell has incredibly rich sweet grape, fig, and cranberry. Light oak and vanilla tannins in the end. Taste follows the nose with rich toffee and husky malt forward with fruity notes of fig, grape and slight hints of musky oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a good sticky sweet finish.
