look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

poured from 12 oz bottle into goblet.

Appearance: a cloudy reddish gold with a white/tan head that is about a finger think that fades to a film with no lacing.

Smells: I smell a heavy cherry note in that is sweet with the mellow barley backbone.

Tastes: it is a smoother more mellow Barleywine compared to others in my opinion. there is a mild dark fruit taste like cherry and fig which I enjoy.

Mouthfeel: I think this is a tasty ale but the is minimal aftertaste and actually no burn even though the Abv. is up there.

Overall: I enjoyed this ale quite a bit. there are not very many barleywines that my girlfriend likes but this one makes her list of likes as well as mine. 8/10

was disappointing.
