Sweet, fruity with a subtle hint of the strength of the abv. Taste becomes more complex as it warms.

Batch 2 750 poured to tulip

One of the most intriguing pours ever... dark brown and opaque, looked almost flat at first... a nice sticky one finger head eventually developed and only subsided a bit

The nose is huge with grape and cognac, some toffee and burnt sugar

Flavor starts with toffee and grape and runs a gamut of vanilla, oak, fig, buttered popcorn, prune, and cherry after that

Mouthfeel is think, intimidating, almost chewy... nice!

Price point seemed a bit expensive, but I grabbed it anyway. I'm glad I did. If not the best barley wine I've ever tried, it is certainly the best I've have recently. Cognac aging lends layers other barrels just don't, totally right for this brew.
