from notes...
Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler...
Appears a dark amber toned orange with a small, soapy white head of bubbles that fades into a mild collar. Spotty bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of fruity, plums, black cherries, vanilla, caramel, and citrus.
Taste is of fruity stone fruit with caramel, malt, and ripe fruit.
Mouthfeel is clean, semi-dry, yeasty, spritzy on the tip of the tongue.

A - a ruby/crimson body with a thin laced white ring around the glass, in a 10oz snifter

S - malty with dark fruits, like dates and.or plums, hints of molasses

T - malty with a hop backbone, nice balance, perhaps teetering a bit too much towards the hop end, lack any other components

M&D - a rather delightful barleywine, not to large in the ABV to ruin your next, had during a lunch and was a perfect choice, the lowish ABV (relatively) kept my head for the rest of the day
