A-really dark brown with a nice thin tan head
S-a lot of barley and sweet malts with some salted caramel. medium strength. smells quite strong.
T-there's just a big blast of smooth barley with some peppery spices in there, but not quite winter spices...almost like peppercorn. there's also a fairly decent roasted taste to it. the dark roasted grains are just so evident. the roasted flavor really lasts awhile. its a pretty well put together beer. quality is high with this one.
M-medium carbonation with a slightly creamy finish
D-it actually goes down real easily and quickly for the ABV. actually this is one of the better old ales I've had. it really does taste like a barley wine that is much easier to drink. go out and get this one, do it for the wolves!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle, into a glass.
I'm afraid to say that the appearance of this beer is the best thing about it. And the soundtrack of Chicago blues that I'm playing in the background, but admittedly, that has nothing to do with this beer.
It smells a bit boozy with dried fruit and plum. I get the "boozy" part now because I just realized it's nearly 9%. It has the ubiquitous caramel/molasses/sugary smell of heavy winter beers.
No. I might be the only person on here that dislikes this beer, but it was a miss for me. It was too metallic for my liking, and the dried fruit smell was more sour than I expected. It did improve as it got warmer, but still, there are so many other winter beers to choose from.
The moutfeel was metalicious, which is a word I just made up. And if you read the preceding paragraph, you'd know that it was a bit sour - and therefore a bit tart in the talkhole.
Again, this didn't hit the mark for me. In a world with so many holiday or winter beers to be had, this one would get a lump of coal from me. Go have the Lancaster Milk Stout instead. You'll be glad you did.
