Pours a slightly cloudy Amber color. No head at all. Aromas of big barrel, vanilla, light coconut, slight dark fruits. Taste is booze and dark fruits. Almost like candied dates soaked in booze. Surprisingly it all works well though. Definitely a sipping and sharing beer.

Poured a darker red with a beige head. Aroma was of big barrel and dark fruit. Flavor similar. A good bar wuad.

Figs and plums on the nose. Malty goodness, brown sugar sweetness, more a solid quad than a barleywine- alcohol is present but still very quaffable. This brewery is killer and it is one of their better offerings.

Pours a clear copper brown from the bomber with thin ring of bubbly tan head. Aroma of bourbon barrel and dark fruity notes. Taste is even bigger, more balanced, less fruit more vanilla. Very nice, light carbonation, solid beer, but not as awesome as everyone told me.

Sample at strong beer fest. Checking this one off the list finally. A big rich sweet toffee and caramel barley wine. A little fruity on the aroma. Purple fruit, plum, raisin.

11/17/15. Craft on Draft. Dark brown pour under a nice tan head. Big barrel aroma, fruity, vanilla, oak, fudge, as well as caramel, candi sugar, maltiness, dark fruits, you name it. Smooth flavor, rich body, plenty of sweetness, caramel, barrel, dark sugars, fruits, and more. Tasty!

Wow, really smooth for such big abv. Nice bourbon flavor over dark fruit, candy sugar, brown sugar, Belgian. Really nice full mouthfeel without much brown. Nice!

Pours black with hints of brown around the edges. Thin faintly tan head that dissipates quickly. Caramel, Bourbon, and dark fruits strike the nose on the aroma. Taste follows the aroma. Bourbon and caramel are at the forefront. Seems more barleywine-ish than quad-ish for the base beer. Pretty good. A little thin on the mouthfeel, lightly carbonated but not effervescent. Pretty good beer.

Poured a dark mahogany color with aromas of chocolate, light dark fruit, some vanilla, light brandy and whisky. Flavors were the same, smooth aftertaste, smooth as hell, extremely drinkable for such a high abv. These guys are firing on all cylinders on each beer I’ve had from them.
