Finally, a good English style barley wine that can hold up to what I am looking for in the style from Deschutes Brewery. Ale pouts a thick brown molasses color with off white foam that has very light clinging lacing. Nose of raisin, plum, caramel, sweet cherries, and light oak. Taste....WOW...I have been looking FOR YOU! Sweet caramel notes up front, golden raisins, and brown sugar to the back with a plum and brandy like quality on the aftertaste. FANTASTIC. Nice silk smooth, yet lightly syrupy mouthfeel, with easy drinkability makes this one beast of a great brew. CHEERS. I have FINALLY found a decent substitute for Thomas Hardy's...reminiscent of some of the early 90's Thomas Hardy's I have tried aged 10 years or so. AWESOME!

4.16/5  rDev -1.9%

Deep molasses color and translucent appearance. Weak head but understandable for the style.

Caramel aroma. Hint of booze. Oak and figs.

Dense buttery, molasses flavored malt backbone. Hint of wood. Herbal hop character with hints of pine.

Full bodied, syrupy feel. Sticky finish. Low carbonation.
