look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz Brown Bottle with pry-off cap and no date. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a clear deep mahogany with 1 finger of off-white head

Smell: Toffee and and dark fruits

Taste: Dark fruits and raisin with hop flavors in the middle with some cherry and chocolate notes and a malty finish with some fruity esters

Mouthfeel: full-bodied and just right

Overall: A great english style barleywine. Lots of malt complexity without getting too muddled and provides much depth. Im curious as to how some age will affect it.
