Served in a tulip glass with a small head that settles to rim bubbles. Good combination of ring and blanketing lace. The liquid is brown where light will pass through the center of the glass.
This smells like dark chocolate with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Not quite a dessert aroma (too little sugar), but real close.
My initial impression is of a Porter with a shot of cognac added. Plenty of darker, deeply roasted malts followed by a solid dollop of hop bitterness. The swallow brings out a strong alcohol warming feel. The aftertaste is like a bitter alcoholic cocktail. Average body with an elevated level of carbonation.

Solid barleywine. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a medium size light tan head. Head retention is good. Bands of lacing on the glass. A pretty good looking beer.
Fairly rich aroma of sweet caramel malt, toffee and some hops bitterness.
Flavor is fairly pronounced as well. Nice balance between malt and hops. More malt forward with a rich, sweet malty presence. Caramel malt and hops are nicely balanced, with the hops keeping the sweetness in check.
Mouthfeel is rich and sweet with a little hops bite and some warming from the alcohol.
I would drink this one again...Good take on an American Barleywine.
