Had on-tap at the Farmhouse in Emmaus, PA. Poured a dark ruby red color with a thick beige head that retained well and left nice lacing. Had an aroma of sweet malts, dark fruits, earthy hops, citrus and alcohol. Tasted of dark fruits, earthy hops, pine, caramel and alcohol. Amazingly complex and well-balanced.

Medium to full-bodied. Smooth, especially considering the ABV and style. Dry finish that is certainly bitter, but not too harsh. I normally detest barleywines but this one is an exception. One of the BEST beers to cellar!
