Poured a clear reddish dark brown with a two finger white head. Heavy lacing is present. Curiously, the aroma is of slight sour toffee. Slightly sweet flavor of caramel and malt with a more pronounced bitter taste on the end. The flavor is not very complex. This is a heavy beer as expected for a barley wine. The alcohol is present but not overpowering. Not too impressed with this beer.

Poured a clear amber tinted brown body with minimal head/lace and has an aroma that balances caramel, toffee, hints of dark fruits like figs and bits of citric hops along with touch of booze. Fuller bodied beer with a sticky and sweet feel that gives off caramel/toffee/fig sweetness while balanced with a bitterly hoppy dry finish and a bit of heat from the booze ends up in finish. A little heavy thanks to more sweetness and booze that I think is necessary but it's a good beer.

Pours a murky deep red with 2 fingers of rich tan head; some slight lacing on the glass. Smells like candied cherries, tart malt, and a little hops. Upon the initial sip, sweet malt with cherries, brown bread, prunes, molasses, and earth are up front; the aftertaste is slightly dry and bitter, but it's balanced by some dark fruity malt. It's a full-bodied sipper that really hides it's 10% ABV; chewy and rich. Great tasting! The warmer it gets in the glass, the more complex it becomes. Give it a try!

This might be my favorite Barley Wine brewed in the US. Nice brown color with light tan head; lacing present; nice hoppy character with solid malt backbone; cherry notes present in aroma and flavor; alcohol warming definitely there; medium to high mouthfeel; good carbonation; 10.4% ABV; usually my last beer of the night; good night.

Interesting aromas and flavors. Nose is full of dark cherries, almost cherry cola like aromas. Taste is bittersweet caramel and toffee followed by a slight hoppy resin presence. Alcohol warmth follows but is not overpowering. The bittersweet flavors linger for a few seconds before fading. Great warming beer for cold nights.

L: Dark plum-red. Finger-and-a-half head, dissipates quickly. Almost no lacing.

S: Smells like a Belgian Quad. Dark fruit and toffee. Malty-goodness in the nose with a hint of alcohol. Very sweet.

T: Sweet malts take the lead, fruity flavors flowing in behind caramel and toffee. Alcohol warmth abound, but the ABV doesn't lend any harshness to the flavors. A little burst of hops give this barleywine a pleasantly bitter finish.

M: Medium bodied, a little sticky. Not much astringency. Warm and happy.

O: Very nice. This is my first in the style and it makes me want to try another, so I'd say that's a win. The balance was very good and I will definitely enjoy another one.
