Copper brew that looked to have all things going for it. Beautiful appearance and nose.Sweet malty front but had an undrinkable salty finish.

What a nice name this brew brings with it. Actually pretty damn good for a barleywine. Wasn't over jagered in the flavor, kinda smooth and hid the alcohol well. Not bad at all.

Tap @ Toronado Barley Wine Festival. Woody, vinous, and bitter with a weird aftertaste. Brewed with all English malt and aged for 5 months.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown. Cloudy. No head whatsoever. Huge malt aroma that I could smell from three feet away. Some hops in the nose. Flavor of dark crystal malts. Some hop flavor and a fair amount of bitterness. Somewhat sweet. Alcohol flavor. Creamy. Tastes a little young. Needs time to age and round out a little. Probably would be better with a few points knocked off the ABV. Fairly good though.

Best thing about this beer is the name, but the flavor isn’t half bad either. Typical barleywine, but exceptionally smooth and drinkable.
