I did thoroughly enjoy this beer, but rated it a little lower because it didn't fit what I though of as a barleywine. I ready the description, and given the quoted 96 IBU, this might fall more into the American than English style.

To me, it hit more like an (imperial) IPA, the dark fruits not quite as strong as I expect. There ws also fairly high carbonation to add to the feel that I don't associate with others in the style.

The beer is the light amber-to-brown with carbonation sustaining a thin head. The smell has mild hints of toffee. The taste, as stated, seems more like a sweeter imperial IPA than a darker-fruitier barleywine, although these tastes come out more as I taste the beer.

I might have to revisit this beer if I can, to see if I was off in my perceived style-biased rating.

Poured an almost opaque medium brown with a creamy white head. The head has some moderate retention, mostly on the collar. But it leaves nice lacing throughout the beer. The aroma is richly malt, with some dark fruit tones, a little sweetness and just a hint of hops. The taste follows right along and doesn't disappoint. There is satisfying weight and smoothness to the beer on the palate and nice hops crispness on the finish. A really good barleywine.

A: This poured a cloudy mahogany with a little off white head.
S: It smelled like bubble gum? Faint copper and caramel.
T: It tasted like bitter copper and orange peel, with some sweet caramel and confectioners sugar. It had a mostly clean, bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was fairly thick with a little carbonation. Pretty good full body.
D: This was a nice new, but not very bold or complex. The scent and taste and body were all enjoyable. But the finish was a little harsh, so it was easier to sip. Decent but forgettable.
