3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is malty, caramel and a little molasses. Pours a cloudy dark brown/copper with an off white head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is sweet and then a little bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Overall not bad, Iíve been frowning on barleywines of late, so this would probably be rated higher if I was more into barleywines.

Sample 7/19/14 (Naperville Ale Fest)-Pours a darker brown with almost no head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, dark fruits, and roasted malt. Taste of the same with a bit of vanilla coming in. This medium bodied brew was not bad maybe a bit thin but still somewhat tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 bottle served in a tulip. Appearance is a murky brown with a little beige head with decent lacing. Aroma is brown sugar, spices, and stone fruits. Kind of like the way a fresh holiday cake smells around Xmas time. Thereís also a sweet, slightly citric smell as well. Taste is plum, date, molasses, toffee, sweet holiday spice, and hints of dry citrus. Mouthfeel is medium and finishes slightly dry with alcohol well hidden. Nice beer.
