A nice deep copper/amber in color with a frothy head.
It smells of dried cherries, caramel and alcohol.
The taste is sweet and raisin-like, with a nice warming effect from the alcohol, which is noticeable. The bitterness is well under control, as is the hop flavor. This is an English Barleywine, after all. It's much more approachable than the American styles.
The body is wonderfully slick and smooth -- almost buttery.
Overall this is a very nice beer and another winner from Wayerbacher. Just don't drink more than two -- even that many may be a little too much.

Appearance is a brownish copper with a half finger of head. The head dissipated rather quickly. The nose had the slight hint of sweetness. The malt flavors are not nearly as hearty as they should be considering the style. The lightness of the malt makes the alcohol tastes strong and intrusive. The only real highlight of this offering is the trace of dark fruits in the flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
