Bottle at barley wine tasting Dark, clear brown with tiny ring of head. Peat dominates the aroma and taste, very Scotchy. Dry, malty. Malty with heavy peat overtones.

L: Deep maroon and mahogany hues with a rich khaki head and moderate lacing
S: Oak, figs, and dark fruits
T: Oatmeal raisins dunked in bourbon
F: Chewy viscous body with a subtle carb
O: Awesome. This was a slightly more restrained version of Brew 1000 in my opinion. Top shelf barleywine is rare and this beer very much belongs in that club. Expertly crafted beer by Fremont, as always, and desperately hope I can trade for a Brew 3000 if that ever gets produced!

this is in the upper echelon of barleywine all time for me, its incredible, exactly what i want in the style. a beer like this always makes me kind of sad in a way too, like, the reason nobodys favorite style is barleywine is because there are so many poor and mediocre examples of it out there, and beers like this, the really superb ones, are rare and hard to come by. i mean, there is a good ipa in most bars in the country, but finding good barleywine is sometimes impossible. this deep shiny chestnut red brew is the quintessential example of the style as far as i am concerned, loaded with rich, long boiled complex malts, maple and brown sugar sweetness, and with some barrel char, heavy oak, and bourbon character, vanilla and sweetness and toffee, its incredible. there is a darker element to this, a roasted grain sort of composition thats not quite stouty, but gives a little more sturdy depth to this than we often get in the style, and there is plenty of body along with it, sticky almost, but smooth, gliding down, not as intense as some can be, mellow in its enormity. i get almonds, toasted seed bread, something earthy about this, and the vanilla from the whiskey in the finish. very little carbonation here, sort of sips like a cognac. wonderful sweetness and complexity throughout this, the right amount of good bourbon on it, and just a fancy and special drinking experience. i could drink way more of this than i ever should. i hope to encounter it again, its near perfect as barleywine goes. everyone should get a chance to drink this one and become a barleywine enthusiast!

Fremont at the top of their game. Not only one of the best barleywines ever produced, one of the best beers period. Makes Bourbon County seem pretty pedestrian.
