Solid copper with a nice bright white head.
Aroma is dried fruit all the way. Strong and aromatic, without smelling too boozy.
Tastes of sweet bread, pine resins and prunes. The strong sweetness and bitterness team-up, following through to the end. The richness penetrates every inch of your mouth.
Syrupy and rich, but the alcohol is well-hidden.
A solid barleywine that I would definitely try again.
Serving type: bottle

A-Sampled at EBF,; shocked I haven't tried this before. Pours a deep amber.
S-Almost all malt. Caramel and toffee. Strong estery fruitiness. I wanted more from the hops.
T-Akin to the nose. Malt stressed. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar. An inanimate fruitiness as well. Light bitterness and some head.
M-Fuller bodied. Softer carbonation. Some drying alcohol.
O/D-As plain as it gets in terms of the style. Something can be said for its longevity as a highly praised Barleywine. I prefer mine with a bit kore complexity.
Serving type: on-tap
