750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber with some reddish tones. Kinda hazy. Small white head.

Smell - Caramel and some fruity aromas. Deep nuttiness and some toffee. Smells very sweet,

Taste - Very sweet. Caramel and apple fruitiness. Toffee. Big sugar bomb. Some specialty malt flavors linger.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and sweet. Medium carbonation.

Overall - This would do well in a barrel. Sugar bomb.

A: pours a deep chocolate brown with sublte hints of ruby are also noticed. it created a very thin film of light mocha head formation that dissipated rather quickly.

S: definitely a weird smelling brew. big bon-fire like smoke, roasted malt, pecan nuttiness, moderate alcohol burn.

T: definitely more sweetness here than in the nose. it has a nice toffee and caramel body, again the nuttiness comes out making this one of the most interesting brews I have had to date. i still pick up on a big toasted malt and smokiness that lingers during the after taste. it really reminds me of bon-fire smoke. there are some interesting spice (nutmeg?) that also integrates into the beer adding more complexity. there is an ever so faint of chocolate that lies in the background as well, and a fruit character that i struggle to pinpoint

M: strong medium bodied brew, that leaves a touch of toffee and roasty malt on the palate in a fairly nice balance. alcohol is felt here this a slight tingling aspect that is rather delightful

O: 1st offering by Perennial, and this one was just simply weird for its denoted style. i really picked up on a ton of nuts and smokiness in this one which I was never expecting. However, it it is labeled a Winter Ale, so the play on the season is definitely in full effect. I just dont think it is that well balanced for its style.

Bottled December 2013

A - Pours a dark, murky brown with a tan head. It's not pretty, but it definitely works.

S - Sweet, toffee, caramel malts and dark fruits.

T - Sweet taste that follows the nose to a T. Not overly hoppy.

M - Medium bodied and carbonation.

O - To me, the beer is a bit overly sweet. Not something I'd normally go after.

On tap at Maria's, into a snifter. Bartender said it's a barleywine made with peated malt.

A: Pours a woody red-tinged brown with a nice light tan head.

S: Light peat, roasted malt, figgy sweetness in the nose. Interesting.

T: The taste is a balance between sweet barleywine and smoked malt. The smoked grain presents as peaty and a little earthy rather than meaty like many smoked beers. Other than that, there's lots of sweet figgy and raisiny notes, plenty of residual sugar.

M: Thick-bodied, moderate carbonation.

O: This is interesting, but I'd prefer it to be a little less sweet. As it is, the sweetness clashes with the peatiness a little bit.
