On cask at the 10th Annual San Diego Strong Ale Festival: Pours a deep golden bronze with a small airy white head. Sweet caramel candy corn malty aroma has a touch of orange citrusy hops. Starts with a sweet sugary maltiness getting slightly toastier toward the thinner, slightly warming finish. Could use some more balance, but still a decent barleywine.
