22oz bottle 2/3/16 (Spec’s-Addison)-40° in Tulip-Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, caramel, toffee, and sweetness. Taste of the same with a bit of hops on the back end along with alcohol. This full bodied brew is well balanced and hits the spot on a chilly night.

Originally rated on 6/14/14. Wow i couldnt tell by tasting that this is a barleywine.. I thought it was more of a brown IPA. Deep brown, but clear body. A thin tan head left some spotty yet thick lace behind. Aromas of caramel, and chocolate malts, some fruitiness from the yeasts and a nice citrusy hop presence. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly sticky. Nice complex flavors of the citrus hops,caramel malts and fruity yeasts intermingle nicley, and there was a slight chocolate presence. A bit on the thin side for a barleywine, yet satisfying and complete, without being overwhelming. Nice anniversary beer..

Bottle. Deep burgundy hue, mostly cloudy, with a silky head of sandy tan. Intense aroma -- creamy vanilla and toffee, orange juice, cherry. The flavor’s far less orderly than the nose, with more booze, some off-putting citrusy bitterness and a metallic twang. The maltiness is present; the sweetness isn’t. Soft medium body; mild CO2. Not a bad little barley wine that hides its ABV well.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong yeast, caramel, grain, figs. Thin mouth, rich malt, caramel, dark fruit, boozy, vanilla, very sweet, really enjoyed this.

orange pour, off white head. Very sweet. Boozy, toffee, brown sugar, golden raisins...not much in the way of hops. Tasty but a tad over the top.
