On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a clear amber with medium beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is roasted malt raisin and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roasted malt, chocolate and sweet finish. Very impressive.

Well... itís been a long day and what a better way to reward myself for making it through the day than by indulging in a barleywine? Letís feel comfortably numb. Murky garnet brown in color with a dense light brown head, it smells rich and sweet, malt to the extreme, with fruity, almost estery English-style aroma (thanks to some English yeast) that starts to scream Old Ale or English Barleywine. Once in the mouth some grainy, fibrous, wet wood surfaces, followed by a sweet, rich, dense alcohol and malt flavor with concentrated raisins. I canít believe how wonderfully perfect this beer is. Itís in-league style-wise with Anchor Old Foghorn, but much smoother and well-flavored. Congratulations, Deep Ellum... youíve managed to continue your streak of surprising me. It finishes almost with a feeling of crystallized alcohol and caramel malts, topped with a faint touch of earthy, resinous hops. I canít believe how good this beer is. This is the kind of beer that Iíd gladly wait a week to drink.

On tap @ Untapped Fest. Ruddy brown pour with some tan head. Nose of oak, toffee, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar sweetness. Flavor follows suit - boozy but not overly so. Barrel aging evident in the woody finish.

Pours a nice brown color with almost tan head. Dark fruit, whiskey, and sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet. Iím not usually a fan of barleywines, but they did a pretty darn good job with this one.
