12 Oz bottle poured into tulip.

A: Very small khaki colored head that settles to a film. Body is beautiful clearea caramel in color until the sediment at the bottle turned ito murky.

S: lots of toffee, raisins, figs, burnt sugars, and honey.

T: plums strike you first then alcohol soaked raisins, nice toasty sweet malts, honey,

M: medium body. Finishes smooth and very clean for a barleywine not cloying at all.

O: very impressed with this beer this is a solid barleywine that is not barrel-aged you're going to enjoy sipping this for a while and you're going to enjoy the flavors of figs raisins coffee burnt sugars just well-rounded barleywine.

Pours a deep amber with a white head and lacing. Perfect clarity and a good looking brew. Great malty aroma that also has some fig and plum. The taste is very close to that, raisin, fig jelly, brown sugar and really just a juicy malt bomb. Just enough hop bitterness to keep things interesting and balanced. Full, lush body with ample carbonation. Quite a beer. This brewery has continued to impress me over the years.

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Hazy light brown with a 1/2-finger head
S: Caramel, raisin, sweet malts... think a nice bread pudding
T: Matches the nose, adding brown sugar and cherries
M: A big beer, fairly balanced overall, just a hint of alcohol
O: A really good example of the style. I find many barleywines to be out of balance whether too sweet or too boozy, this one is not at all
