Delicious, solid Barleywine from Clown Shoes. Subtle in its booziness for 11%. Perfect on a cold - ass fall evening.

22oz bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a hazy, really dark copper thats nearly brown, with 1 fingers width of tan head which has good retention but leaves only very little lacing. 3.75

S: Candied sugar, toffee/caramel, some sweet dark fruit notes, a bit of booze, some floral and herbaceous hops. Really nice nose. 4.25

T: Boozy up front, with caramel and toffee on the finish. Some bitterness, floral hops, some soapy hop characters. 4

M/D: Full bodied, carbonation appropriate, ABV is noticeable but its not hot. Drinkability is good. 4

O: Not bad, I actually kinda like the booziness, but I could see how others would be turned off. I do think this has the potential to develop nicely with some time in the cellar. 4
