Sessionable Barleywine
This seven malt red ale is filled with complexity; expect hints of nuts, burnt sugar, raisin and a slight touch of smoke.

Bottle shared during RBWG late night tasting. Pours a cloudy caramel color with a large beige head and some floaties. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, toffee, nuts, dark fruits, raisins, warming alcohol, thinner than most barleywines.

Bottle generously shared during the post-grand tasting muff party at RBWG. What the hell is a barleywine clocking at 8.1% doing being called sessionable? Lots of butterscotch with slight toffee and pine in the finish. Thin, watery body. Just being relatively weaker and thinner should NOT be equated with sessionable.

Ratman197 (9794) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2013
750 ml bottle courtesy of BeerandBlues2 (thanks Brad!) poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, toasted malt, toffee and light earthiness. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of toasted malt, carmel, toffee, earthiness and cocoa with a smooth dry lingering malty finish. Biggest malt bomb I’ve had in a long time!

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Bottle pours muddy amber, aroma is rich malt and earthy fruits, taste is fairly sweet and rich. The finish is pretty nice, not sure why its so expensive though
