UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Small batch beer aged nearly a year before serving. Black pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of smoke and roasted malt, almost stout like. The flavor has some piney hops in addition to the smoked and roasted malt. There is also a hint of brown sugar and some dark fruit. Fairly boozy. Medium to mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, but at $10 a glass (and they wont give you samples because it is a small-batch beer), not one I could recommend.

Aged for 10 months, this very different barleywine is Very dark brown in color... almost black, honestly, with a small, dense, light brown head and bubbly, wet lacing. This almost reminds me of an imperial stout, but so much gravity has been burned off, and it has such a relatively thin body, that it feels much more like a barleywine. Theres still a heavy amount of roast character in the flavor, but its nose is mostly of a deep, sweet, almost burnt red ale. The finish is heavy with burnt caramel and a touch of roast, bitter malts and some smoke. Its a nice beer... Hops are up front in the mouth, with a black IPA-like palate. Yes, thats what this is. Its an imperial black IPA, but so much better. I like it! Nicely done and unique! Very enjoyable.
