I had this on-tap at the brewpub. The beer pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a layer of creamy off white head. The smell is weird. It is sweet with a slight tart note. I'm getting some coffee as well, but I'm not a fan of the smell. The taste is much better than the smell. I'm getting the coffee with a touch of dark fruit. The beer is a bit nutty, so it reminds me of an amped up coffee brown ale.

On tap @ Tired Hands. Pours a murky amber/brownish color with a finger or so of rich slightly off-white head. Creamy edges with sticky lace that hangs down the sides. The aroma and taste were both pretty similar, with a lush of combination of toffe, cocoa, acrid roasted coffee, vanilla and a touch of green hops (more so in the taste). The feel is fuller but is extremely smooth for 11-12%. Almost to a ridiculous degree. This is very sweet in spots (strengthened by the alcohol I'm sure) but the hops and coffee helped bring it down as well. The coffee was actually probably the most interesting aspect of this for me. I enjoyed this for the most part but 8oz was plenty during this sitting. I could see this getting a little taxing on the palate if I had gone for more.

Pours a nice copper/amber color, minimal head. Firm notes of sweet, dark caramel, noticeable vanilla, tootsie roll like chocolate with medium roast coffee. Taste mirrors scent, quite sweet, fruity. Medium bodied, heft could be turned up, long lingering sweetness. Good combination of flavors, could be undone by sweetness and body after more than one.

On-tap at the brewpub
The body sits a ruddy mahogany with a thin, creamy off-white cap. A little bit of lace reveals the sip marks.
Really sweet nose. Loads of caramel and toffee aromas with vanilla, brown sugar, and just a faint hint of coffee.
Flavors are a little all over the place. Caramel and toffee throughout with vanilla, brown sugar, stone fruit, coffee and cocoa seem to pop up here and there. There's really no confluence of flavors. This doesn't taste bad, it just doesn't have a direction.
Residual sugar and all of the caramel malt gives this a sticky feel. Low carbonation. Medium to full body.
This is an odd American take on a Barleywine. It's real sweet and a little all over the place.

on tap at the brewpub
Slightly hazed ruddy, reddish color with a beige head sitting on top. Fades into a few patches of lacing with a collar of film.
Plenty of coffee and sweet vanilla aromas with caramel and bready malts. Alcoholic presence and a spike of hops.
Hoppy and sweet up front, followed by a wave of vanilla bean. Coffee beans with roasted malts, caramel and bread crust. Brown sugar and boozy warmth. Finishes a little hot and sweet with piny hops.
Lighter medium body, softer carbonation, definitely thin for the style. I was pretty psyched for this one, but it was definitely a bit too sweet and watery for my tastes. I'm curious to see how the barrel aged versions turn out.
