This one pours a dark brown-ish color, with a small head, and not much lacing.

This smells like candied nuts, brandy, bourbon, boozy caramel, molasses, and cherry.

This is incredibly sweet, and it does detract a touch. In small amounts, though- this is a decadent treat. The brandy barrel is definitely dominant, with only a touch of bourbon coming through. There's lots of dark fruit, even a bit of maraschino cherry. There's the rich maltiness you want from a barleywine, too- caramel and molasses and toffee all over this guy. It's only a tiny bit boozy- not as strongly as the ABV would suggest, though. Certainly not.

This is medium bodied and very creamy, with a decent level of drinkability for the style and ABV. It's a treat to drink.

If you can get over the sweetness, this is definitely great. It never gets completely cloying despite it all.

Thanks to the incomparable rawfish for giving – yes, giving – me this 500ML bottle. There are still good beer people out there, despite what you might see in rare release lines. And get off my damn lawn!

What flows is one of the darkest barleywines I’ve laid orbs too, dark brown, the red highlights showing only when held up against a full solar eclipse. The nose is all boozy, sweet caramel. I like.

Sight & Mind is a belly-warming home-wrecker. More alcohol than a M*A*S*H still, sluicing its way down. Strong brandy up front that drowns out whatever bourbon notes might have existed, dominating, leering, & flexing. Toffee, caramel, limpid brown eyes, sticky gingerbread, brown sugar, grade C maple syrup. All the good things. Viscous. Thick. As stirring as the national anthem before a chess tournament. This should come in much bigger bottles. Or tubs. A tub of it would be good.

How much of this could one buy before one’s wife kicked one out? This is one of those rare beers that makes me want to go check the credit limit on my Visa. Decadent, delicious, borderline perfect, one of the best barleywines in the world. Ever.

Ho-Lee-hell. This beer is Obama, Miranda Kerr, and Yasiel Puig all in one: everything that Raul loves. This dang sucker shows up on the scene hard. Miranda Kerr walking down Melorose, she owns it, yeah, I like dat. Then all of a sudden Obama comes out of nowhere, smoking a grit, so he’s working the thing! Then, just when you least expect it, “Puig your friennnnnnnd!”

Yes!
