On tap at Hunahpu's Day 2014. Murky tannish-brown with tan head that held, thicker at the edges than the middle. Aroma was toffee/molasses with a good touch of oak and bourbon/rye. Hints of vanilla and cinnamon run throughout as well. Taste is all that was in the aroma. Layers of flavor colliding on my tongue. Really great.

Pours a very dark but translucent ruby. Not much head but visible bubbles. Lots of raisin, fig, some chocolate and roastiness. Lovely.

375ml bottle poured into snifter. Huge thanks to liquiddegenerate for the bottle!

A - Pours a rich murky brown with a finger of tan head. It's not pretty, which I don't expect a big barleywine to be.

S - Sugar cane, plums, figs, raisins, mixed with a bit of harsh booze and a hint of that rye. Smells tasty, although it isn't strong.

T - This is interesting. A lot going on inside of this beer. Starts off with figs and raisins macerated in burnt brown sugar. That fades into some bitterness (the bitterness seemed out of place though) and exits with straight spicy rye whiskey. This is the most obvious Rye Whiskey has ever been in a beer. I really enjoyed this aspect. I should have drank this with a reuben...

M - Well hidden alcohol, medium mouthfeel. Drinkable for a barleywine. Not too thin and not too thick.

O - This is a very good and extremely interesting BA barleywine. Not like anything I've ever had. If it wasn't for the random bitterness in the middle, it would have joined my top 10 BA Barleywines, but as it is, is worth trying and I will seek out again.
