Best after 2/24/15, to a snifter

Pours a pretty clear golden brown with moderately red hues. Not much foam, just a thin frothy ring, mild carbonation and good lacing

Smells of oak, toffee, fig, raisin, molasses, caramel, and wine, with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Finishes with a little bit of booze, really complex

Taste follows really well. Upfront fig and molasses with quite a bit of oak. Behind that lots of caramel and toffee, shadowed by white wine. Finishes with a bit of vanilla and some alcohol

Feel is pretty thick and heavy. Not too bitter, easy to sip

Overall I was skeptical about this for too long. Def worth picking up a couple for the cellar

Potent english malts in the nose and on the tongue. Heavy body. Beautiful rich color. Slightly sour, mildly tanniny, semisweet. Coating mouthfeel. Nice.

Good flavor, somewhat sweet with a wine finish. I did not enjoy it as much as other reviewers.

Nice balance of sweet upfront and dry wine/hop finish. Very good English barleywine.
