12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy, off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, herbal hops, chocolate, cherries and brown sugar. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of chocolate, bready malt, honey, cherries, cacao, brown sugar and herbal hops. Finish is long and semi-dry. Well made brew.

Pours brown , settles in the glass deep brown with touches of ruby. Left a one inch off-white head that receded almost immediately. Left a minimal amount of lacing.

Smells caramel and spice. I see the disclaimer here, I just don't really believe it.

Taste of barley, and well roasted caramel malts. Simple and to the point that's about all it is. And I am actually pleased, reminds me of summer days at a campfire roasting marshmallows, eating the marshmallow I would char to black at least once every time I roasted them.

I could drink this all day, medium light bodied, light carbonation.

I am extremely pleased, glad I chose this over another of Weyerbacher's barleywines for the evening.
