Itís hot in my house. Too hot because I have the wood stove blazing despite the 50 degree weather outside. Itís a good thing too, because when I opened this bottle to experience my first exciting rendezvous with Jackie Oís Brick Kiln, it was just too cold and needed some warming up. No aroma at all, when I knew there should be. I let it sit a bit in the sweltering room and go off to find something cooler to wear. I return just fifteen minutes later to a bouquet of boozy toffee and warm plump raisins. When Iíd poured the brew originally, the cap was warm mocha-hued, soft and fleeting. A deft twist of the wrist and the sheet of mouthwatering foam becomes large again, needing that constant touch to remain at attention. That same movement elevates the aroma and I bring the glass up for the first mouthful. The brew warms my gums, filling my mouth with a flavor flush with ripening fruits and a darkened caramel. Itís a little more bitter than I was expecting, and a light nutty accent at the back of the experience ends with a somewhat dry, rough finish. The beer has a respectable body, lightly sticky and although the brew is less carbonated as it warms itís a style that can stand up despite the loss. The last quaff is tastier than the first, and I could recommend this brew to anyone who enjoys a solid English-style Barleywine.

Nocturne (927) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
375ml bottle. Dark brown; darker than your standard barley wine. Aroma is deep toffee maltiness with hints of liquorice and tobacco. Taste starts out sweet with those elements but then turns quite dry and woody, which I didnít appreciate as much. Quite like these darker BWs but this one felt a little too unbalanced to be one of the greats.

GenDV138 (2166) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2015
12.7 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bought at the brewery in June 2014 before heading to RBSG 2014. Dark brown with half a finger of beige head/ring. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, a bit of chocolate, toffee, light booze, toasty notes. Tastes of dark fruit, caramel, toffee, toast notes, biscuit. Medium body with a dry and warm finish. Pretty good, on par for the style.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12/25/14. Bottle. Pours opaque amber-brown with a creamy, dense, but thin darker beige head. Aroma is vanilla, wood, dark fruits, caramel, hint of licorice. Taste is big on dark fruit,leather, vanilla; some perfume, alcohol, bitter fruit rind, cocoa, cereal grains. Simple. Some nice lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Full-bodied, oily mouthfeel. Not the most terribly full-flavored BW Iíve had but quite good, nonetheless. Some flavors that approach but never quite reach ethanol. Interesting.
