COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic English-style Barleywine is full bodied, has a pronounced complex malt sweetness that is balanced beautifully by the dryness imparted by the oak. A slight tart sourness rounds out this complex beast.

On tap at Iron Hill Wilmington. Poured a murky brown color with no head. Aroma is sweet with a nice oak smell. Taste starts a nice sweet oak, with dark fruits, brown sugar and a nice warming alcohol finish. Texture was medium with perfect carbonation and easy to drink and smooth.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 On tap at IH Wilmington. Poured a murky red brown color with no head. Aroma sweet fruity oak and a hint of vanilla. Taste sweet dark fruits sugar hint of oak and vanilla. No trace of the alcohol in this one. Texture was medium low carbonation and very easy to drink. Smooth... and much better then their regular Barleywine. Great beer I could of siped on this all day.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2008
On tap at Iron Hill Wilmington for the Cassis release party and the World Series final game. I couldn’t think of a better beer to be drinking when the Phillies won. Poured cloudy amber bronze in color with a thin beige head. Aroma of light brett funk, dark fruits, orange citrus, caramel, and vanilla. Tastes of a fruity orange sweetness and light citrus, with dark fruits, oak, brett, Very complex and quite drinkable for 10.5%. In the excitement as the Phillies won the World Series, my second mug of this was knocked over by the brewer and spilled everywhere. Oh well. I can’t wait to get more of this sometime.

On tap at IH Wilm. Pours a hazy deep almost ruby amber with a medium creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of brett, fruit loops, vanilla, light oak, very fruity, dark fruits, floral and citrus notes. Flavor of sweet tarts, earthy, oaky, vanilla, dark fruits, nuts, floral, citrus an bretty. This beer was very solid. Well done. Really smooth, abv well hidden.
