Black cap. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter. I had hoped to age it longer but the bottle took a spill in my trunk on the way home and the cap started to leak.
A: Mahogany color with a thin head that quickly disappears
S: Sweet cherry, molasses, prune, Belgian yeast, vanilla and whiskey
T: Matches the nose. Tons and tons of cherry pie filling. Underneath that distinct prune along with molasses, vanilla, brown sugar and a bit of Belgian yeast/fruitiness on the finish
M: This is definitely a big beer. Very sweet, the alcohol is there but not oppressive. It should mellow out with age
O: Complex and quite tasty. I do wish I could have aged it as I think it will integrate and gain complexity. Then again I'll just try to find another bottle

Bottle from Joe. Thanks! Pours dark brown color, some ruby on the edges where the light comes through, and a one finger khaki yellowish head. Unique aroma with plenty of whiskey, oak, fig, dark fruits, brown sugar as expected, but with some spice and another note that almost seems quad like. I assume the year is the "Belgian" influence? Flavor is sweet brown candi sugar, dark fruit, leather, caramel, some oak and dryness, coconut and vanilla finish. Thick body with medium low carbonation, coating the tongue. Definitely different from the standard BA Barleywine, but very nice.
