Feel: medium body; good carbonation; a bit hot.
Plenty of dark soaked fruits in the nose.
O: decent, but poorly hidden alcohol. Would probably benefit from aging.

Can as a trade extra. Thanks! Pours insanely thick from the can, dark brown amber, with a big creamy khaki head. Big brown sugar aroma, lots of figs, sweet toffee maltiness, and some hay. Flavor is sweet toffee and biscuity malts, some brown sugar and figs, light grassy hop notes, very sweet and rich. Huge body here as expected from CCB. Not mind blowing by any means but solid and rich, and my first canned barleywine.
