look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Pours a deep red/near brown with a big fluffy off white head. Not a lot of obvious carbonation. A nice looking beer.
Smell is sweetness upfront followed by a bit of slightly piney hops and then what I could best describe as a bit of dark fruit.
Taste is very in line with the smell.... overall the sweet note is the most dominant but it's not overpowering. There is an element to the taste that is a bit undefineable for me which I am assuming is from the dates. Overall a well blended and pleasant taste that combines sweetness and hoppiness very well.
Mouthfeel is very creamy, perhaps a bit too much so for the style. It's not off-putting at all, but I think given the taste profile a little more carbonation would be beneficial.
Overall this is an enjoyable, slightly unique beer. No regrets buying a 4 pack at all, but I don't know that I will make a point of seeking it out again.

3.71/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
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.
