On tap over at the Drafting Room in Springhouse, yay! Great brandy color with good amount of carbination and light on the head. Yummy scent of sherry and dark fruit. Lacing in the glass. Great barleywine style here. This is just so freaking good!! Tastes of dark cherries, sherry, and you can taste the alcohol in it- which I do love. The taste changes so much from when you first taste it when it is chilled, to when you let it warm a bit, to the point where it comes to room temperature... well, if you can wait that long! There were some huge chunks of scrod inside the glass from it, but hey, that is the risk we all gotta take here and there! Was not allowed to take any of this away in one of their growlers, rules against it said this was the only one on tap that was a no-go at the time. Big Sigh. But if it was allowed, I think me and drinking buddy would have drained the keg. Next trip back, the handle was gone. This is one I could definately have more than a few of in a sitting, not too heavy/thick, not too sweet, just so good.... yummmm....
