4.64/5  rDev +9.4%

On tap at the Dancing Bear Pub. Enjoyed out of a Numb Comfort snifter.

Look: beautiful dark cherry/mahogany color. Small white head that dissipates quickly.

Smell: lots of malt and ripe fruit, caramel. Typical Barleywine profile with some light alcohol sweetness.

Taste: very similar to the smell. Very balanced with lots of malt and some hop taste on the back end and in the middle. Just delicious.

Mouthfeel: nice and bubbly. Plenty of carbonation but also a smooth sticky finish.

Overall: an excellent Barleywine from one of my favorite breweries. Not sure I picked up much of the barrel aged notes but still delicious nonetheless. Will definitely have another.

Poured into a small sampler glass. Deep amber color with a thin off-white head.

Sweet black cherries and figs with some ethanol aromas.

I get an intensely sweet malt and saccharine syrup. The same cherry and fig flavors are here, as well as a slight floral hops bitterness.

Full bodied, with long-lasting sticky mouthfeel. Would do again.
