On tap at the Owl House in Rochester, NY.
Pours a crimson red/brown, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells like caramel, toffee, booze, dark fruits soaked in rum.
The taste is similar, and fairly smooth and unassuming. This is not a barleywine that knocks you over the head with strong malt flavors. It's slightly boozy, with smooth caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and dark fruit flavors. The alcohol present isn't negative, it melds well with the dark fruit flavor to suggest cherries soaked in brandy or raisins soaked in rum. It's nice. Not too sweet. This doesn't really taste like an American barleywine, however, seems to have more in common with one of the English persuasion.
Medium bodied, smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Low carbonation.
This is fairly tasty, but not in the upper echelon of barleywines/old ales that I've tasted.
Serving type: on-tap
