A - Pours a dark amber red color with minimal head and mild, but steady carbonation.
S - Raisins, toffee, alcohol effervescence, white grapes, apples, and rum with an overall tart frutiness.
T - Taste is mild and somewhat mellow. Alcohol effervescence in pronounced and caramel, toffee, and rum raisin fall in line behind it. White grapes and mild spice help accentuate the overall flavor.
M - Velvet on the tongue, mellow, smooth carbonation bubbles, medium to medium heavy body, lip smacking stickyness on the lips in a light syrupy sort of way.
O - A 'barley that I've always liked, if only I can discipline myself to cellar some bottles without drinking them first.

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a Lagunitas pint glass.
A- Pours a reddish dark amber with a 1/2 inch light tan had that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Sweet smelling with some notes of dark fruit, caramel and a touch of brown sugar.
T- Big hits of Bready malt, booze and more dark fruit. Everything melds together to make for a drinkable barleywine, there's just not a lot of complexity. Bitter aftertaste.
M- Somewhat syrupy with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- Definitely a sweeter barleywine with a lot of residual sugars but still quite drinkable if not very complex.
Serving type: on-tap
