Dark brown pour, very light brown head. Sticky malts up front in the nose, some brown sugar, golden raisins. Flavor is sweet up front, toffee, dried fruit, and finishes with a flavor of hops without big bitterness.

Tallahassee, Fl - at drowland’s 7/7/12 going away tasting party - thanks to Robert. Dark brown pour, soft off-white head. Aroma is sweet with some brown sugar accents, a hint of chocolate. Flavor has more of that chocolate essence, some dates and raisins thrown in there for good measure. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Best I have had from Orlando Brewing.

Slight fruit aroma can be had through the smell of malt. It pours out the bottle of a very dark brown with no head. Taste of big malt with a follow of a large sugary sweet. Med body with a soft oily texture. Overall good barlywine with a good kick of 18.5%.
