Pours out a deep ruby red with a thick beige topping. Plenty of lace behind.
Dark fruity raisin aroma, caramel, some piney resin hop. The full barrel comes through with vanilla, wood and whiskey which I was wondering about since it isn't 100% barrel aged.
Lots of dark fruit malt flavor that is pretty raisiny. Large amount of sweet caramel that kinda washes out the hop character which peeks in a bit to say hi. Slight heat and burn from the alcohol at the end. Get a little spice and cherry when it warms.
It is fairly well carbonated. When you swirl the glass you can see the bubbles and you feel them on the tongue but it still remains somewhat thick.
Had this on draft of its first release and enjoyed it but its awesome to have a bomber to slow sip at home. Might be worth it to age one for a while to kill the heat although it drinks great fresh. Nice array of flavors.

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.
