A - Pours a murky reddish brown with a one-finger foamy white head. Light amount of sticky lacing.

S - Lots of booze, caramel malts, and light dark fruit.

T - Taste is a nice blend of sweet dark fruits, caramel malts, molasses, and alcohol. Finish has a nice earthy hop bite.

M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

O - A really nice Barleywine with a nice balance of flavors. A nice sipper.
