I'll have to visit this again someday . . . after the enjoy after date. I was tempted and drank this shortly after it hit the shelves.

Pours amberish marron with a dirty cream colored head. Aroma and flavor mirror each other; bready and veering towards doughy, red wine tannins and its barrel, caramel and some caramelized pitted dark fruits mixed with some brown sugar. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, I really am not a barleywine fan but I had to give this a try given the rave reviews it has. Plus,I was able to try it on tap and didn't have to commit to a full bottle. Ultimately, not really my thing but a good beer for what it is. I will stick with Firestone Walkers Sucuba if I ever have a craving for another barleywine. At the least I prefer the use of bourbon barrel over wine barrel when paired with a barleywine.

Dark amber body. Good amount of head for 11% booze. Grainy alcohol sweet smell. Just got done with a CW BBBW, and this one isn't quit as sweet. Still very sweet with some hoppy fruit flavors. Easily 2nd best BW I've had.
