smells of caramel and calvados; autumn leaves and cordial cherries. The carbonation seems to only rise with a shake, and then it climbs the side of the glass in fine beads.
The taste is astringent at first, and numbing, but not puckering. However, this barleywine provides its own salve by way of a huge caramel malt backbone that is crafted like a spun sugar sculpture: Beautiful. Dark spots of charred grains are reminiscent of wood and tannin, and toasted peanut brittle. There are pithy pits of cherry and peaches. This is sticky and fragrant like a local, and strange, honey, and like a homemade fruit cordial. This is 100% barley wine.

3.4/5 rDev -6.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
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
