Tasted from draft. Pours a dark reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is sweet with dark fruits and caramel. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with minimal bitterness. Flavors of dark fruits, caramel, syrup, earthy notes and brandy. Not my favorite barley wine but definitely one of the better ones.

Honestly think this is way past its prime and have no idea why it's no retired. Kind of weird and intersting but its aftertaste was kind of minty. don't know this is from age or apple brandy barrels. Kind of off flavor. Smell was sweet and candy like
