Barley wine bottle share on 1/31/14. Poured out an amber color with aromas of toffee, bourbon, caramel, and some light dark fruit. Flavors are the same, dark pitted fruit within some toffee, and caramel added with alight bourbon aftertaste.

Full on Barleywine begging weather event happening and stuck inside the house. Have to make the best of it I guess.

The very promising and complex aroma overflows with notes of sweet bread, chocolate, cherry and raisin. Tastes sweet and bready with an array of dark fruits toward the back and a fine thread of lingering alcohol in faint hops in the finish. The oak peaks through in its own good time. Heavier and dessert-like but well carbonated and viscous.

Rich and complex and just about perfect in every respect.

And amazing beer with notes of fruit and malts, semi-sweet with a velvet mouth feel.

This is prune all the way, prune juice color, a dark reddish purple, small creamy head, prune on the nose, prune flavor, etc.

A little chewy, but one of the smoothest barleywines I've had.

It's really hard to get into the nuances of this brew, but as with all their beers, an attention towards quality is very evident here.
