On tap at Roasthouse Pub in Frederick MD.
A - Light Brown with red hue. A good bit of alcohol lacing. Solid looking BW.
S - Dark fruit smell with malts. Cherry like smell or fig smell prevailing. I want to taste at this point.
T - Dark fruits and fig. Wow I can't get enough of this. Solid fruity foreground with a slightly malty background. VERY GOOD barleywine.
M - Smooth and crisp, but the alcohol makes it a sipper. Not much carb but it is expected for a BW. Solid mouthfeel.
Worth a shot. Good BW.

A: Poured a light caramel-brownish color, transparent with a whispy white cap which fades away in moments
S : A whiff tells me there is plenty of booze in here, along with some caramel, what seems to be some faded piney hops, backseat raisins and toffee
T : Initial booze sting is ushered in by some caramel, toffee and a little sweetness. A decent amoutn of dark fruits weigh in on the main flavor profile. The finish is a bit hot, sweet
M: A little thin on the body for me. Sticky sweet finish with caramel and fruits and waves of light toffee.
O: Your traditional barleywine notes are hit on this one but nothing to rave about by any means. I would drink again but probably would not seek it out. Bump up the body and we can talk about another purchase...

On tap at the tap house in Concord, CA. No clue this even existed until visiting.
Pours a nice pretty clear amber color with a decent size cream colored head. Typical BW appearance. The aroma has a lot of dark booze soaked fruits and some sweet candy-like whiffs. Sweet caramel also. The taste is sweet up front with a mild bitterness kick on the swallow. The aftertaste lingers for a long while. More pronounced dark fruits come out as it warms. Boozed up red grapes is the major contributor. A little thin in the mouth.
Overall this is a sweeter BW compared to some of the competition. No off-putting tastes, just an enjoyable experience with a pretty easy drinking BW. No idea if this will ever be bottled, but nice job here.
