Well made modern take on this rare style. Very rich and complex, beautifully balanced. Maybe a bit to dark but that's a small thing.

take their grog and double it. dark nutty brown, with a foam head, lot of malt in the nose. sweet and heavy with a great malt base and a bit of smoke. as with the other nodding head beers very enjoyable and drinkable.

Had this on draft at the Split thy Skull event at Sugarmoms in Philadelphia. Maybe the best beer there. It is what you would always want in a weee heavy. Not light but not crazily heavy (though I may be a poor judge because I love barleywines as strong as you can make them). Awesome scotch ale flavor and a bit roastier than I think the style normally ascertaines, which was a bonus. Great beer

This was a lovely beer with a fig dessert. Deep chocolate brown, malty and slightly smoky aroma. Full mouth feel, very creamy. Flavors of dark fruit and slight smoke. Firm malt without being overbearing. Warming alcohol. Well done.

Had this on draft at the Split thy Skull event at Sugarmoms is Phila. Was a little on the sweet side. Pured a little flat.

Black as coal with toffee-tan head. Light sweet nose. Smooth. Sweet-yet-substantial with an interesting crisp finish. Superior beer.

A very thick, malty beer, though it had a distinct alcohol taste which I don’t like in beers. It was quite fizzy with a weak aroma.
