so shipyard has decided to jump into the special release market with a barleywine and imperial porter. So, how does this fair?

A - dark mahogany colored brew with a khaki head.

S - dark ripe fruit, caramel and an abv / ester note

T - roasted grains, burnt toffee, bakers chocolate, butter, slight abv note.

D - slightly distracting with the burnt / roasted notes.

I bought this and the Imperial Porter at Tully's in Wells for $10.50 each. This was the first one I tried, and thought the beer was pretty good. Served in a snifter, the beer was a dark red/brown color with a medium-sized, quickly dissipating, tan head. The aroma was predominately of dark fruit, with a little malt presence. The taste was cherry and raisin, malt first, then some hops. The label said a dry finish, and I would agree. I thought this was a good example of an English barleywine, and would drink it again.
