A- This barley wine was poured into a tulip glass. It's a rich redish amber color, reminiscent of a light cherry color.
S- Alcohol was definitely present in this brew. Upfront, but not overbearing. Sweet smelling with a hint of fruit.
T- Taste wasn't what I was expecting. This brew has an upfront alcohol flavor. Notes of sweet fruit, sweet malts, and a flavors which were wine like also lingered in the background. Finish was somewhat sweet with a faint hops note.
M- Great mouthfeel. Thick, but not overly viscous. Carbonation was a bit on the heavy side, but not overbearing.
D- One, maybe two would be quite sufficient.
A decent barleywine for the money. Definitely opens up as it warms. Started drinking this around 55 degrees and finished it around 65. Much better at the warmer temp.

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
