4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Beer Authority. Deep amber pour. Intensely sweet malty nose. A bit of resinous American hops and a touch of plummy crystal malt as well. A bit of soft fruit and a nice malt base. Chewy and sweet but itís not cloying. Has a nice bit of bitterness rounding off the back. Chewy and fruity. Itís a very tasty barleywine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper brown with good clarity and a aggressive tight bubble eggshell foam that falls off quickly. Nose is sweet with lots of toffee, butterscotch and vanilla. Palate follows the nose with silky smooth rich sweet notes that fall into a boozy oak heavy finish. A little weird on the lingering finish with traces of medicinal artificial sweetener.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2016 Update: 2 1/2 years later, same friend pulls a bottle out from aging. Essentially the same taste profile, but the alcohol is completely gone from the taste, though itís still warming. I need to pick up a few of these next time theyíre out and store them away for a 3+ years. Yummy.
Got to try this thanks to a beer buddy at work. Aroma is dried fruit and sweet...something and alcohol. Taste is the same, and very sweet, but not cloyingly so. and really easy drinking, but treat it as a sipper. Supposedly it gets better when a bit warmer - 45 degrees or so. Definitely a treat.
