Clear, dark mahogny-red beer. Two finger high, beige head that leaves lacing in the glass.

Nose: Dark fruit, caramel malt, bread, plum and brown sugar.
Taste: Sweet malt, raisin, plum, grass, dark fruit, a little bit orange, nuts and dark syrup.
Body: Medium to full body . Light carbonated. Creamy feeling. The alcohol is well hidden with a perfect balanced bitterness.

A great barleywine from Anchor!
