On tap at Petrol Station in Houston.

A: Pours a dark ruby red/brown color. A two finger beige head forms with good retention. Rings of lace.
S: Dark fruits of raisins and plums. Some resiny bitter hops, followed by toasted and caramel malts.
T: Follows the nose with plenty o dark fruits. Raisins, plums. Then the hops that are slightly bitter and resinous. Toasted malts, that are sweet. Plenty of caramel and even some chocolate flavors.
M/D: A medium to full body. Slick, oily, and very viscous. Maybe to much so. Though still in line with the style. Hot alcohol, but still a good sipper.

Very enjoyable. A good barleywine, though I don't get much of any barrel character. No bother, something I will grab when I see it. Just a bit hot and overly resinous for me. Though still a very good version of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

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.
