Pours nice and deep red. Little bit of yeast sediment left in the bottle.
The beer smells a bit boozy, but at the same time sweet and nutty, a bit like candied pecans. But the taste is not boozy at all; in fact, this is the smoothest Barleywine I've ever had.
The taste is strongly of nuts (which is weird since its a Brandy Barrel aged beer), particularly liquid pecans as suggested by the smell, but the finish is oaky and very, very reminiscent of Walnuts. It just tastes fantastic. This is an amazing beer that's completely underrated, particularly in comparison to its brother beer Silva Stout. This beer is better than Silva Stout. Mouthfeel is great, super smooth for its ABV.
Great beer. Hard to get, but seek it out if you can find it.

Poured from a bottle at Green Flash tasting room for the Silva & Sleepin' with Shaggy release. Pours dark brown with no head. Slight aroma of brandy, molasses and dried fruit. Flavor packs a strong punch. Brandy barrel, caramel, spice and figs. Medium bodied, slightly oily. Very hot. High carbonation leads into a clean dry finish. Epic....
