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.

Wow not sure how to rate a beer without the scoring system? Who needs to get fired?

I jumped with excitement with this on the shelves up here in Ohio.

The appearance is easily the darkest of the barrel aged BELGIAN barely wins I can recall. Very deep, a good bit of yeast and just weight. There is carbonation but fizzy non existent stuff after a few minor seconds. So no head no lacing, but some ok legs on it. 3.5

Dark fruits (raisins and plums), molasses, sugar cane, vanilla, oak, and alcohol. 3.5

Very rich, molasses, rum, butter, citrus and flordal hops....I want to explain dark fruits but I'm not really tasting it. The alcohol is too high, this one needs age badly.

The beer claims 11.3 and well I can't call more BS. This drinks like a 15% beer. I feel a law suit is coming here, but this is as fresh as fresh gets I suspect.

This is a port level sweet beer...but it hasn't come together yet. With 2-5 years of age this is going to drink absurdly well. I highly recomend grabbing this one and aging.
