12oz bottle shared by viggo - nightacapper, thanks man!

Rich golden brown beer with a clean head with some retention. Really classic English malt profiles, rich caramel, toasted brown sugar, raisin, molasses, hints of cocoa, toast. Light citric hopping which provides a light bitterness and drying in the finish. Hides the ABV real well, very full flavored. Just so tasty.

Picked up a six-pack of this from a trip to Charlotte. Like the other dark beers from the dark beer specialists, wow was I not let down here.

A: Dark brown, thick cherry red that comes out thick like oil. A think foamy head. Oddly attractive- the thinnest of heads that stays on the beer stay in enormous sized bubbles.

S: I didnt catch the hops but sure did catch the cocoa cocvered raisins. Spicy and meaty. Delicious. The dried cherries are reminiscent of three philosophers maybe?

T: Sweet with a ridiculous amount of ridiculous flavors that each. All of the flavors oddly end up in the sweet dried fruit range. There is a hop presence to add to the complex flavors but the raisiny goodness again takes the dominant role. Imagine honey and chocolate teddy grahams soaked in a strong alcohol. If I could ask for anything it would be for some more bitter undertones to finish out the sweet caramel maltiness.

M: Thick, viscous, meaty, clingy and again..thick. Perfect for capping a night in a cold autumn November day spent raking leaves.

D: Nothing short of great. The most complex barleywine Ive had in a while, not necessarily the single best but like a rubix cube of flavors. The alcohol brings down drinkability some. Not hot, just powerful. Very powerful. Get your hands on this beer.
