Growler from egajdzis, Thanks Eric. Dark amber color. Good carbonation. Growler filled to the brim. Mild aroma with malt. Heavy body. Sweet. Tastes good, but young. Needs some age. I bet the barrel aged version of this is awesome.

"Old Tom Barleywine" - Had a 4 oz sample from their sampler (so not the best foundation for a review)...but I thought this was very good. Strong alcohol aroma but the taste was surprisingly smooth...especially compared to the other barleywines I’ve had. They do it right at Iron Hill. Very good...I’d have this one again.

"Old Tom" On tap at the Wilimington Brewery: Amber in color. Good lacing, and an ok head. Aroma was weak smell of dried fruit. Flavor was smooth! Sweet dried fruits. Texture was medium light, no carbonation. Over all pretty enjoyable but not as good as their sasquatch!

Wilmington. Pours a deep garnet with little head. Aroma is very malty and fruity, like sweet dark berries. Flavor much of the same, a big sticky maltiness with a subtle hop profile lingering in the background and finish. Excellent!
