3.63/5 rDev -7.2%
12 ounce bottle poured into snifter.
A: pours a wonderful deep amber / ruby red color with about a finger of nice thick, tan head. this fads to a fair ring around the glass, with some lingering in the center.
S: upfront, I get a malty sweetness with dark fruits like plums a little bit of hop, but not much.
T: I get a sweetness and a breadyness from the malt initially, then some fruits, figs, and a bit of resinous hop character at the end.
M: pretty good mouthfeel, good carbonation.
O: i havent had a whole lot of barleywines (even less english barleywines) so im certainly a bit out of my element in regards to this beers representation of the style. this is based more on my general opinions. a pretty good beer, though. I wouldn't ever turn one down.

3.9/5 rDev -0.3%
A: Dark brown filtered with lots of carbonation, even bubbles cling to the inside of the glass. There are 2 fingers of creamy beige head.
S: Malt, toffee, butter scotch, crème brulee, apple candy.
T: Butter scotch, candy, alcohol on the end, caramelized sugar like crème brulee, apple candy comes in as well.
M: Thick syrupy body is balanced by the heavy carbonation so much so that its smooth with a light bitter aftertaste.
O: Considered a standard by many in the beer world for a Barleywine, I was glad to finally find this on the east coast at Brawley’s Beverage in Charlotte. Drank in Boca Raton July 12th, 2014.
