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.

This is one of the best beers that Deep Ellum has ever made. The beer has a delicious bourbon flavor with a sweet malt.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
