On tap at the Weyerbacher feature night at Rattle N Hum. Snifter.
Pours a dark amber, transparency is difficult to ascertain in the light. Almost no head, but a thin collar sits on top. Nose has rich toffee and caramel notes, loads of big sweet maltiness but not overdone. Taste follows suit, heavy maltiness, toffee, caramel, dried dark fruits, some alcohol in the finish. Alcohol lends some character and warming qualities to this; full bodied and a great mouthfeel. Sticky finish with an appropriate and far from cloying feel. Damn good barleywine.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into fluted snifter; deep ruby, clear, with a fluffy yellow-cream head that descends relatively quickly leaving a nice slick ring of foam.
Smells of dark fermented fruit, sweet caramel and toffee malt, raisin bread, bourbon.
Tastes of sweet, bready toffee malt with bourbon, dark fruit, and slight spice.
Mouthfeel is surprising; it starts out slick and sticky, but then transitions into a fluffy quad-like feel. Awesome twist!
Overall, very glad I picked this one up. My girlfriend kept insisting I had had it before, but I didn't think I had and I was correct. Good thing...it's awesome! An english barleywine that drinks like a quad.

Poured a dark auburn tinted brown body with a strong boozy/bourbon like aroma mixed with sugary sweet maltiness (caramel, toffee) and a little bit of woodiness and I think a hint of dark fruit (I am leaning towards figs). Beer is full-bodied and thick, not really sticky so it goes down smooth like velvet, there's some bourbon and woodiness in here so it's smooth and boozy. I get taste notes of vanilla, figs, possibly plum, toffee, caramel and the finish is a little hot but it's more complimentary than distracting. All in all a very enjoyable barleywine.
