Bottle. Dark ruby with thin wisps of off white head. Aroma is dark fruit, toffee and brown sugar. Taste follows and adds caramel, butterscotch and toast. Thick, rich and syrupy. Dead flat. Alcohol heat is present but very reasonable for the Abv. This beer is completely insane.

750ml bottle at Split thy Skull barley wine fest. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of toffee, bourbon and oak and vanilla, light bitterness, some caramel and sweet malts, and some faint notes of alcohol. Flavor the same with a really nice blend of the beer and barrel and hidden alcohol. Smooth, thicker texture. A really cool barley wine.

2014 Bottle from Mikeís Barleywine tasting, thanks for the opportunity! Rich sweet fruit and caramel. Sticky syrupy sweet mouthfeel. Hides the alcohol content extremely well with just a wisp on the nose. A bit too sweet for my taste.

If you do not like sweet beers you should stay away from this. I love sweet BWs so this is right up my alley. Fairly thick dark brown pour with thin off-white head. Nose of sweet malt, fruit, light coconut and vanilla. Taste follows the nose. Not as much "barrel" as you would think in terms of wood and vanilla. Sweet with ABV higher than what it tastes like. Mouthfeel is syrupy and thick. Some mild hop bittnernss. Huge beer that some should love and others will think it is too much.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, brown sugar, and alcohol. Taste is caramel, sweet malt, dark fruit, toffee, brown sugar, and alcohol. Very sweet, too much so for me.
