Poured into a tulip. Deep reddish caramel color with a thin white head, not much retention. Smell sweet of cherries and burned sugar and caramel. Faint alcohol on the nose as well. Taste doesn't have much up front but hits sweet and balanced on the finish. Has a very faint metallic off-taste that I've picked up in some of my homebrews, but barely there. Pretty good but not as robust as I'd expect from a big barleywine. The alcohol is not well hidden. Pretty drinkable, but again, that's not what I really expect from an 11.1% barleywine.

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
