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.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: bottle
