Pours deep, syrupy Amber, thick with quickly dissipating head, likely from alcohol content. Nose is fairly sweet, with restrained hop character and light phenols. Perfect for a barley wine. Taste is incredible- rich and complex, and far too easy to drink for a beer conservatively rated 12.5% abv. Of course the only complaints are from my liver- my mouth is in love with this beer. Initial caramel malt sweetness gives way to a solid backbone of earthy hops and grain body, finishing with a dry, well attenuated tail end. Carbonation is medium-low, as expected, leaving a decidedly smooth mouthfeel that lets the flavors shine through. Incredible.

I've had the beer for a week or so and finally settled in to a glass yesterday. Shared with some family and all were totally blown away. If its this good now then how good will it be after it ages a little. Holy Cow!

Had this at Thanksgiving dinner with friends. I've had this beer several times and it keeps getting better with age. Hey BHB! put this beer in a can?

2015 is a really great beer . Tasts of Carmel vanilla are great it's sweet and and has a full bodied feel has a nice feel. Smells of a ok and raisins when poured into a glass this is a very good barleywine it's a must have if u can get your hands on it. I belive there was a limited supply.
