Dark orange, heavy texture, medium head. Heavy malt & barley aroma. Almost Cognac-like mouthful with strong alcoholic taste. Sweet flavor of prunes, caramel and figs. A great "after-dinner" beer.

draft the poured a semi cloudy orangish color with white head. aroma was truly a malted pleasure and alcohol. the flavor was not as clear cut as I thought it should be but didnít detract from it...you have plenty of malts and a mild creaminess to it...could be from the maris otter. but its evenly matched over the tongue with the alcohol. it was a solid barley wine flavor and some fruit notes mixed in as well. the alcohol was must noted on the back end. overall love it...

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy caramel orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells like an unbalanced malt bomb with a strong caramel and vanilla presence. Tastes like it smells with some oak and booziness. Some fig too. Underwhelming.

Pours a burnt amber with an almost white head that sticks around. Aroma is on point: caramel, cereal, nuts, floral, herbs, dough, barnyard, cheese, earthy, and ALCOHOL. Flavor: Would be an easy eight but so hard to get through the burning alcohol. What you find is well balanced but very faint. Palate is full body, sticky, soft carbonation, with a long bitter alcohol finish. I love Dog Fish and I love Barleywine but the super high alcohol hurts this brew a bit.

Pours a clear amber color with some lacing but not much head retention. Tastes malty and sweet. Reminds me of butterscotch and alcohol. Crazy high abv here. Just ok though....I think they are overcompensating here for something.....

Aroma of figs and dates, taste is dates, figs, lots of caramel and toffee, lots of sweetness but is balanced by the alcohol. One more bottle for the cellar. Excited to see how it ages.
