Tap. Poured a dark copper color with a moderate frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex roasted malt and dark fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Goblet at the brewpub. Not my favorite style, but this one is pretty decent. Aroma is boozy with hints of toffeenut, caramel and berries. The palate is thick. Alcohol is there, but not intrusive. It’s sweet without overdoing it. Flavors of toffee, wood and fruity undertones are noted. Not too shabby.

Pretty good, the best item from the brewpub. Not too sweet, especially for a barleywine. Mild alcohol flavor in the taste and finish. Caramel malts with strong fruity flavors. Lightly sweet finish. Full bodied, low carb.
