Poured from a wax topped bottle. 2014 version.

A- Dark brown with a cocoa colored head. Poured into a tulip glass with a nice 3 finger head

S-Please bring us some figgy pudding and bring it right here. Huge fig smell, and a hint of caramel

T-Huge caramel upfront, followed by a crush of figs, and then closes with a merlot taste. You can taste the wine barrel in the close.

M-Sticky like a caramel party in my mouth, nice and thick.

O- Not my thing, but this is how this beer should taste. I feel like I just ate a fig newton followed by a Snickers bar. Fantastic.

This was a very good Barley wine. I purchased two bottles of this, one to try now and one to age after the best after date of 2/25/15. It will be hard to keep this bottle to find out how well it ages. It is a very smooth sipping beer with just a touch of the wine barrel notes in the after taste.
