It does have a sherry aroma with roasted malts. It is ruby brown in color with a fluffy, light brown head. It has a strong sherry tasted with other malts and a bit overpowering alcoholic flavor. It definitely has a fruitfulness to it as well. It has a rich texture that is slightly creamy.

This is a pretty good barleywine. It is dominated by caramel, but with hints of toffee and plum.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle for 3 bucks. Pours almost straight brown with a slightly off-white head. Looks the part. Aroma is caramel, malt and a little bit of wood and fruit. Taste is mostly caramel, malt, a little hoppy and a little alcohol but hardly overpowering. Body is a little thicker, average carbonation, a little creamy as well. Not a very complex barley wine but very easy to drink. I like this one quite a bit.

For me: maybe? Good for variety or for others who aren't wanting too much bitterness. Pretty floral/fruity, sweet malty-ness, but still nice amber color and tones.
