Noticed the thick viscosity of the beer when pouring into a snifter. Barely got any head despite am aggressive pour. Beer looks oily but taste amazing for a BA barleywine. The barrels def come out on every sip. Cheers, Freemont.

Fremont knocked it out of the park with this one!! I am not a gigantic barleywine fan, but this is absolutely killer. Thick and voluptuous, full bodied yet taut. Highly recommended.

This is almost a stout. Dark brown, almost black, Lots of chocolate and coffee, malt, whoppers, raisin, dates, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, caramel, vanilla, oak, great barrel character and bourbon, viscous mouth feel with strong carbonation. It's one of the best barley wines out there.

This was an exceptional beer that I am very glad I tracked down… Had as part of a barley wine tasting session along side many other world-class barley wines and it was second only to Anabasis. Nice caramel notes here
