A: Poured a deep orange color with bronizsh colored hue, light and white soapy head crown this beer. The head retention is average. After a few sips light lacing and bubbles remain.

S: The nose presents a fruit basket of sorts; blend of light and dark fruits with some caramel, toffee in their for fun

T: Initially it was a bit of pine and citrus with some underlying dark fruits and sugar. A short blast of vanilla. As it warmed the booze came alive, this beer opened and changed personalities. It seemed to go back to fruit heavy, sticky, sweet with a backseat heat.

M: Fuller bodied, well carbonated, lots of flavor and sweetness linger on the palate

O: A good barleywine. Thanks to Dajtai for scoring hadbottles of a rare, draft only bwine for me.

On tap served in a snifter @ Cottonwood. Man I love this beer, too bad its rarely brewed. I believe the keg is two years old! Ringing in at 14%

A beautiful deep amber color, light creamy head. The nose is of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Taste is full of caramel, slight hint of vanilla, and some charred orange. Nice and thick on the mouth feel. Its perfect for the chillier months. A great sipper and my opinion the best Barleywine brewed in TX! Though I love Sisyphus from Real Ale aged, this one tops even that. Cheers
