Poured from 22oz into a high sided tulip glass.

Look is a clear amber brown with a tan head.

Aroma is fruity malt not much from the spice.

Much more spice in the taste with a strong malt body.

Excellent Christmas Eve beer.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a dark reddish orange with a thin ivory head that dissipates to patches with slight lacing. Aroma of candi malt, plums, apple, light stone fruit, a little vanilla. Flavor is mild caramel and biscuit malt, plums, raisins, light cherry, a hint of red wine with suggestions of seasonal spicing in the finish. Medium bodied with light creaminess. A fine winter seasonal ale that leans in style to a Scotch ale, but without the smokiness. The malt and fruit flavors are much like that style, but also appropriate for a winter warmer. Great dried and fresh dark fruit flavors and a little bit of fruitcake. Happy holidays, Silver City.

22 oz bottle, thanks for sharing bro- Pours dark brown with a nice frothy light tan head. Aroma is bready, malt, peat, touch of campfire. The flavor is again peaty, malt, caramel, everything is real mellow, decadent without being too overboard. Delicious

Pours a deep red mahogany with perfect clarity. The generous beige head has good retention, receding to a stable ring and thin cap. A nearly solid sheet of lacing slides quickly back into the body after each sip. Aroma is malty with notes of toffee and dried cherries. Taste is mildly sweet caramel malt and very pronounced dried fruit, especially cherries. Medium bodied, with a hint of alcohol warming.

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, deep, dark, almost opaque mahogany color, speckled with orange highlights and a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thick halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very aromatic, with lots of bready, toasted malt, along with lots of brown sugar, toffee, dark molasses, dried stone fruit such as sour cherries, prunes, dates and raisins and spices of clove, all-spice and vanilla.

Taste: Interesting, delicious, flavors of bready, toasted malt and fruity, sour cherries up front, followed by some brown sugar-like sweetness. I also get some spices of clove, all-spice, cinnamon and a hint of ginger.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and smooth as there is very little in the way of carbonation. With an ABV of 8.5%, there is just a slight hint of a pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: This is a delicious barleywine, with lots of delicious, malty, fruity, sweet flavors all in harmonious balance. Highly recommended!
