Rather odd color like grapefruit, orange and mango? Smells very fruity and something sweet I can’t put a finger on. The taste is fruity, kind of sweet and alcoholic. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy then the alcohol comes and you know you got a “drink”. Overall an interesting brew that should be tried by us beernurds. On tap at What’s On Tap, NRH.

This is a pretty sophisticated beer and a very good one. Pour from draft at the brewery. Golden yellow color with nice head and lacing. Sweet fruit smell. Tastes of apricot, peaches, and almonds. A bit of booze which makes it pleasantly warming.

Color is really light for a barley wine - had to double check with the barkeep that it was the right one :)
Flavor is smooth and malty, but not particularly boozy. Good, for sure, but not great IMO

Growler fill from Craft and Growler in Dallas. Pours a deep honey amber, 2" head which quickly dissipates. Excellent lacing through the life of the pour. Initially sweet on the tongue, with a nice but not overwhelming burn on the back end. This 2L growler will not last long. Excellent example of a high ABV barleywine. Will definitely refill given the chance.

Fantastic offering from Peticolas, and easily one of the most drinkable/dangerous barleywines out there for sure. Pours a golden color, with little head (but lots of lacing as you drink). Smell is a combination of honey sweet and alcohol, and mouthfeel is good (albeit a bit lighter than some barleywines).

The taste is fantastic - sweet, strong alcohol, almost winelike, but surprisingly easy to drink at the same time (a sharp contrast from some barleywines). Had this one on tap at the Common Table, and was pleasantly surprised indeed. Definitely recommend checking this one out before it disappears.
