Pours deep ruby with thin off white head, aroma is caramel, nut, brown sugar, and molasses. Taste is sweet and thick with caramel and molasses overtones, finishing a bit boozy and dry.

Good aroma - deep brown black pour with a caramel thin head. One of the first 750ml from Brau - overall a solid Old Ale with not over powering alcohol.

Winterfest ’10. The best beer I have had from Brau Brothers in some time. Brown color. Aroma has lots of brown sugar, and it reminds me of sweet barleywine. Flavor is also quite sweet, caramel, brown sugar, dried fruit. Bitter grain finish with some alcohol on the palate. They could have called this a barleywine and I wouldn’t argue.
