Pours dark red-brown with a very durable and creamy beige head. Good lacng.

Aroma: sweet; slightly boozy, a bit fruity, and nicely bready.

Flavor: bready; raisins and other dark fruits; more obvious hops than usual for style; alcohol esters. Moderately boozy for style.

Feel: medium body and soft, medium+ carbonation. Warming

O: A slightly hoppy barleywine.

Dark brown body with red and amber hues and clear towards the outer edges while maintaining a slightly murky center. The head is a light tan color, creamy and creates a thick even lacing all around the glass.
Mild hops covered up by dark fruits and mild spices.
The dark fruits carry the alcohol very well, it’s also bready and the esters come out just as it hits the middle of your mouth.
This is a good example of a heavy bodied ale that just envelopes your mouth and just warms it up with alcohol.
This is my second rating for this style and so far both have been great. This ale in particular is smooth (for the amount of alcohol it has) mildly sweet and very entertaining to drink.

A: poured into a snifter to a a deep brown with some reddish hues topped by a finger of dense off white head that fades quickly and leaves minimal lacing
S: smells of piney hops with some caramel sweetness
T: taste is caramel, toffee, piney hops and a little citrus. swallow is a little alcohol, caramel and toffee
M: fairly full in the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation and a neutral finish
O: The more I drink of it the more underwhelming this beer is. flavors are fairly soft and the hops are a little too big for an English Barleywine. There's some complexity but there are better examples out there.
