Keg at CPK as ’Anchorage A Deal With The Devil Barleywine’, 17.3%. Very dark purpley brown, no head at all. Looks a little imposingly boozy…and it is. Aroma is sweet toffee, some salted caramel, sherry and bovril umami. Body is quite rich, smooth and oily. Taste is sweet sugar syrup, creamy fruits, not too boozey. Actually it’s pretty drinkable for something so strong. Pretty impressive but a bit on the sweet side for my taste.

Pours dark reddish with a tiny head. Aroma of tart notes, hints of wood, oak and malts. Taste is smooth, malty and wooden with hints of syrup, oak, cognac and vanilla. Finish is malty and warming with loads of wooden oak notes, hints of tartness. Nice, quite balanced and tasty barley wine.

Beerman6686 (6403) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2015
This poured a medium brown with basically no head. Aroma was lots of dark fruit, caramel, and light booze. Flavor was sweeter than I would like but manageable, lots of dark fruits, pruney, alcohol, not very complex though.

AirForceHops (6305) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Bar, San Fran. Ruby color with some soft Carbonation, no head. Aroma is layers of thick dark fruits with a strong note of cognac underneath. Holy hell the mouthfeel is sticky sweet with the cognac being a lingering element. Very low alcohol in the flavor, extremely smooth and only a light warming sensation after the sip. Warming alcohol on the tongue after the sip is gone. Really like drinking a nicely aged brandy. Would cellar very well
