Nose is not big, minty hops, dried fruit, slight alcohol
Brilliant dark mahogany brown under a tan tinted 2" finely bubbled foam cap.
Palate starts malty with dried fruit then gives way to a prominent hop accent and dries out in the finish. Result is well balanced between the malt, fruit, hops and alcohol.
Slightly warming with a medium to medium full body and medium carbonation.

Canned in 2011.

Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with copper highlights and a large, frothy khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.

Aroma is laden with dates, figs, prunes, and toffee. Smells very rich.

Flavor reveals green apple, dates, and raisins underlying a lightly toasted, bready caramel malt backbone. Hints of sherry indicate that oxidation may have set in.

Body is a touch full, with fairly low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.

The malt backbone is a little lacking for the style, but ester notes are fairly complex. Probably won't age nicely much longer. Metallic notes surface as it warms.

A: Pours a deep ruby red with a light mocha head.

S: Dark fruits and light, but not citric fruits in the nose.

T: Lemon, some resiny pine, dark fruits to start followed by bready malt in the finish. Interesting. Definitely different from English or American barleywines.

M: Full bodied and smooth.

O: Worth a try. It's a good beer, and if nothing else, it's interesting. I've tasted few beers that taste quite like this.
