Absolutely fantastic barleywine, and a great example of Deep Ellum brewery's talent and creativity.

Had it on tap, and pours a beautiful reddish-brown color with minimal lacing. Smells like raisins or plums, mixed with a bit of the wood smell from the barrel and a hint of alcohol.

Taste is outstanding, with a lot of malt and sweetness upfront, and some notes of fruit (plum/raisin like taste, similar to the smell), with a bit of hops at the end. You can also detect some of the woodiness imparted from the barrel, but just faintly so, which balances well with the other flavors.

Mouthfeel is superb - has a bit of thickness that you would expect with the high alcohol content and maltiness, but not so much that it's syrupy or anything like that.

Highly recommend this one to anyone who can find it, and is a fan of the style. Definitely will have one of these again for sure.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Serving type: on-tap
