Diesel, brown sugar and maple syrup with hops that are old and dusty like dry leaves. Goes down smooth like 5W-30, and is perfectly carbonated... just enough. Boozy and delicious, an actual winter warmer.

2014; I really like this. Dark, good aroma. It actually has that slight warm alcohol burn. Really nice. Burnt sugar and a bit bitter. Will miss it. Hard to hold on to this one. Will age a couple bottles just for fun.

Dark sugar nose with a hint of sour and alcohol, faint chocolate, dark dried fruit. Pours bright deep dark brown under a 1/2" light tan tinted white foam cap. Spicy malt suggesting anise or licorice on the palate along with dark dried fruit with a soft undercurrent of light chocolate. Fruit and dark sugars dominate with a balancing hop bitterness on the finish. Creamy and chewy with medium to medium low carbonation.

Pours a dark amber-brown with a thin white head that quickly fades to a lacing. Sweet fruit and spice on the nose. Taste is classic English barleywine--deep malt with some caramel and toffee notes, fig and dark fruity flavors mid-palate, with a pleasant hop bitterness on the finish. Silky smooth mouthfeel--perhaps a little on the thin side for the style, but quite pleasant nonetheless.

Overall a nice take on the style. Would recommend and try again.
