Cask at SRAF. Pours clear ruby. Nose is fruity, sweet malts, nuts. Tastes sweet, red fruits, nuts, booze, light spices. It was slightly boozy already in bottle and unfortunately these turn out to be worse in cask. Aroma promised more.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brune / rouge. Peu de mousse. Nez bizarre : alcool, calva. Bouche étrange également : prune, mirabelle, gnole (fort gout d’alcool). Carbonation honnête pour ce type de bière. Corps puissant : liquoreux et alcoolique. Mal équilibré.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour at Farmers Cabinet. Clear but very dark red brown color with a decent off-white head. Medium-light dark caramel body. Oversoaked burnt cereal. Bit like a wet sock unfortunately, but this is likely an overripe pour. Dark amber fruit. Plums. Apricot ears. Black cherries. Light liquorice. Portobello mushrooms. Somewhat complicated but feels way too thin and past due. Have had in the bottle (which also read a bit thin) where it felt fresher. Know that the age of this keg is a detrimental factor, but still find it hard to imagine a worthy proper Barleywine coming out of this. Will try again, but cannot recommend for now.
