Pours a tawny brown with faint white head

Aroma- rich dark fruits, caramel, walnuts, vanilla, maybe a touch of oak

Taste- rich oak and warm dark fruits, some prickly hops fighting to push through, lots of rich, fine chewy caramel. Finishes with toasty vanilla and citrusy hops, more caramel

Feel- so smooth, barely any booze there. I'm surprised how light bodied this, almost too drinkable

A fantastic beer. No doubt one of the best barleywines. I may be a little more partial to Old Numbskull (barrel aged), but this is great
Cheers
