3.61/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Canned on 1/17/2019. Poured into a tulip glass. It pours The color between iced tea and cola. The thin, ecru-colored head disappeared within seconds. There was no lacing. Cola dominates the smell, along with subtle caramel, brown sugar, and cherry. The taste is sweet and syrupy with cola and cherry, along with toffee and brown sugar. There are also notes of raisin and tobacco. The mouth feel is thin with low carbonation and the sweetness makes the 10.6% ABV seem stronger. Overall, I was disappointed with this offering but its age may have had something to do with that. Still, a good Barleywine should last 18 months.

Can to snifter.
The appearance was a rich dark amber/brown color with a small cap of a little white foamy head swiftly sliding off. Just a wisp of concave lace riding low sticking with the sips.
The aroma had a huge almond butter sweetness up front playing around with some dark fruits and caramel/toffee malts. Sweet tobacco leafiness. Vanilla creaminess and milk chocolate layering in nicely.
The flavor is mostly sweet all throughout the sips intertwining very nicely through all of the prior mentioned aromas. Smooth semi-sticky caramel to vanilla creamy with dark fruity/plum character in the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a slight leathery sort of dryness. Dark fruity smooth stickiness but that leathery coolness helping provide enough grip. Carbonation felt nice. ABV felt on par. Finish provided a nice leathery dry dark fruity to earthy and vanilla sweet character.
Overall, pretty nice barleywine, but not so "British" per se. American ingenuity seems to take this "barleywine" to a different level.
