3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 on tap at the brewpub. Pours a rich ruby-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet caramels, slightly buttery toffee, dark fruits, and a nice molasses up front with some light wood notes, sherry, a bit of syrupy sweetness, a hint of toast, and a light earth. Flavor is similar. Molasses, toffee, and dark fruits up front with a nice sherry note, darker caramels, and wood up front. Some light earth in the middle with a touch of buttery toast before this finishes sweet with a light dryness from the wood and some sherry. Lengthy aftertaste following a full, slightly syrupy body with a light carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid barley wine. Nice malt backing and sweet overall, but no hint of alcohol and a nice, light wood and sherry note along with some dark fruits. This was really enjoyable.

Another beer consumed during the EBF weekend without proper notes, but I really don’t need them for this beer because it rocked my palate. This was outstanding! Great flavor and aroma of dried fruit and caramel. Would love to consume an entire glass on just an empty stomach because this might fill me up fast.

Tap @ CBC... Poured cloudy orange with a thin white head. Earthy vegetable notes with warming alcohol on the nose. Soft, mildly carbonated palate. Hopes were low in profile with very sweet flavors like caramel malts, vanilla, light fruits, and a thick honey-like, syrup consistency. A nice, warming, alcohol finish.
