Serving: Tap/Bottle.

This beer is hands down my favorite barley wine as of yet.

A: Deep amber color with a thick white-tan head.
S: Caramel, Dark Fruits, Toffee
T: Follows the nose on the palette, but finishes with a biscuity, bready on the aftertaste, which I found to be quite pleasant.
M: Thick and Rich viscosity, low carbonation, very pleasant.
O: Fantastic Beer! If you can find it, pick it up!

Great base beer to the BA version. Perf levy barley wine. Seems to be able to age. Sweet but not overload. Smells strong. Would take this beer anytime

Had on tap at chappys in dayton. Served in tulip glass. Nice dark color, could not see if it was black or dark brown. Nice smell for the style. Nice a malty tastes, little to no taste of hops. Had an awesome creamy feeling. As the beer warmed it got better. I would say it maybe was served too cold to begin with. Awesome beer from a awesome brewery, can't wait to see more of their stuff in cans, and hopefully some day in bottles too.

I love Jackie o's and I love a good barleywine, so this should be a winner. It turns out, it wins the championship.

Black Kiln is the prettiest I've seen of this s style. Fine little bubbles that don't stop. Perfect foam. The aroma is a beautiful sweet boozy smell. If you breathe deeply it's like a hospital, but only the part of that smell you liked. Alcohol.

The taste is a balance of sweet and bitter. I don't think I will tire of this. Fortunately and unfortunately, I only have this one bottle. This is strong and could be bad for your health (and I have my annual checkup \health screening this week). How could something so good be bad for you?

The aftertaste lingers nice and sweet, but not too much so. Sublime.

Look - Dark for a barleywine, murky brown
Smell - definitely sweet bourbon, great stinky dark fruit
Taste - Earthy, raisin like dark fruits and creamy brown sugar
Feel - wow, super smooth, melts in your mouth kinda feel
Overall - Really love this brew, fantastic.
