A 750 with no cork and cage. God bless Yards for skipping that pretentious BS.
This was an amber tinted honey color; it poured with a massive, frothy white cap. I smelled toffee, potpourri like fruit, and toffee. Some warmth, but it was mellow and well incorporated.
Mellow flavor profile but it comes together well. Lots of toffee, not sharp or charred. Some spiced fruit and light, lingering bitter astringency. Medium body and overactive carbonation. Really nice b-wine, wish it came in 12 ouncers.

Deep reddish-orange with frothy white head, about a finger and half thick. Good retention.
Light nose of fruits, light caramel, some nuts and toffee. Nothing too powerful, just pleasant.
Medium body, with unimpressive taste. Some fruitiness and light nut flavors , but that's about it. Not much going on here.
Have definitely had better barleywines than this, and trust me, there is better.

A 10.3% barleywine in a 750ml bottle. Well at least I won't feel shorted.
Pours beautifully. This is a mainly malty sweet barleywine with minimal to almost no io influence. Nothing outlandish on the sweetness. Pretty smooth. Not a lot of variance or complexity on the ride though. A quintessential English barleywine. Probably a good one to age for a while.

A beautiful clean honey colored pour with 2 fingers of head.. Excellent retention.. Honestly one of the best looking head I've seen on any beer in a long time. Slow dissipation leads to a very nice creamy drink session. Smells bready, malty, candy sugar sweetness, caramel. The flavor is a bit on par with a nice heavy alcohol dominance up front... Hints of Belgian sugars and plum, very reminiscent of a quad.
Medium to full body with modest carbonation.
This is a very enjoyable drink - and gets even better as it warms up.
