Can thanks to StFun! Rich dark brown pour, minimal carbonation and lasting lacing with an aroma of super malty sweet caramel and earthy. Flavor is also leathery malt, hoppy abrasive caramel and resiny and finished slightly rye like, herbal and bitter. Really dug this and would love to try this again, thanks Josh!

Can shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is dark orange/copper hued with a quarter inch of lasting tan head. The aroma offers sweet malt, toffee, booze, hops. Smells appropriate for the style. Smooth flavor , with malt, fruit, and hop flavors gaining strength as the beer warms. Alcohol is present, but in the background. Overall, a solid barleywine. Recommended.

Shared can with friends. Poured a light ruby color. Aroma was fresh grain notes. Was surprised that this was as smooth as it was. Hop character is pretty low, despite the claims of 60IBUs on the can. Sweet character notes, pretty tasty.

Can courtesy of someone who yourefragile and I coordinated on a trade with. I never got the name, but thanks. Served in a wine glass.
Pours a nice caramel color with a moderate white head. Bit of a collar. The nose carries some toffee and caramel plus a faint bit of hops and alcohol. Flavor has a bit of hops in the background to go with a good malt presence. Nice toffee and caramel plus slight fruit. Medium body and good carbonation. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can delivered by my sister straight from the brewery. Clear ruby color with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet brown sugar malt, dark fruits and a bit of yeasty bitterness. Flavor is sweet fruity malt, brown sugar and, after it warms a bit, a little bitter finale. Creamy, smooth palate with very little carbonation. I’m a fan of barleywines to begin with and this one is not bad.

Big thanks to Josh for hooking me up with this can. Pours a clear deep amber with a good amount of brown and a light brown head that dissipates to the edges and remains thinly. Aroma is full of sweet grains and caramel with a bit of light fruit and a decent amount of alcohol. Flavor is full of caramel with some sweet grains and breads. A bit of alcohol comes out in the finish, but solid overall.
