This was Delicious! Easily one of favorite barley wines.
Nice dark brown color and the smell was great. Every time I go to this brewery
they have a beer that I fall in love with.

This is a very tasty, English-style barleywine, somewhat reminiscent of both Young's Old Nick and Anchor Old Foghorn.

Somewhat murky deep, slightly reddish, brown, it has a smallish but frothy, long-lasting, frothy head that leaves some frothy lace.

The aroma is winey-fruity with dark toast, spice, raisins, caramel.

The taste is sweet but also pungently spicey with some light bitterness that soon strengthen near the finish. It's raisiny-grapey, caramelly, toasty, winey, a bit leafy and junipery. It's strongly tastying but very enjoyable, with the tastes generally blending nicely even if faintly rough. It's also pretty easy to drink.
