Bottle. The pour is a caramel. The aroma is all sweet up front, some toffee. The taste is not as big as the nose. Sweet, but nice.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 On tap at their taproom. Overall, lots of barrel characteristics in this! The rye does shine through adds a nice malty and comfortable alcohol feel. For 14.4% this is easy to drink. What a balanced and great tasting Barleywine. With age this would shine.

Aroma: toast, lots of caramel and toffee, nice vanilla notes, some spirits layered in, somewhat sweet.
Appearance: pours a fairly dark copper color with ruby hues, a touch of khaki head.
Taste: rich caramel and dark sugars, fairly sweet with some bitterness and warming alcohol to balance, toast, bready malts, some oak and whiskey, hints of dark fruit, sweet but not overly so.
Palate: full body, low carbonation, smooth texture.
Overall: an excellent, complex barley wine.

On tap at brewery. Pours a nice dark copper with a little head. Aroma and flavor of caramel, malts and dark fruits. Amazing beer, one of the best barley wines I have ever had, if not the best.

Just not my style of beer, but still glad to snag a couple of bottles of this. Pours a dark brown with mid-sized, thick head that very slowly dissipates. Aromas include sweet malt, ripe fruit, booze/liquor, some woodsy notes, and caramel and coffee. Flavor is very sweet with quite a noticeable liquor flavor/element to it. At first, I was tasting some licorice, then caramel, vanilla, rye whiskey, and toffee. Very smooth with a long-lasting finish. Think Iíll let my second bottle age a bit more...

750ml, thanks Bvery! Pours reddish brown with an off-white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is big time molasses, booze, dark fruit, brown sugar, and fig. This hides the 14.4% very well. Taste is bourbon, brown sugar, fig, over-ripe fruit and toffee. Very tasty and quite warming. Delicious and dangerously drinkable.
