Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with medium beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong vanilla, coconut, spice, dark fruit. Medium mouth, sweet roast, brown sugar malt, coconut, hides alcohol well, really enjoyed this.

I had this on tab from the bruery but that day it left less of impression compared to the Bruery’s top tier offings I sampled that day. Fast forward to last night after drinking FW 805 during the fight I opened a bottle of mash chilled to perfection and it was excellent look, smell, body , and taste all rate a low to mid A IMHO. If you can find it try it you’ll not be disappointed if you like Barley Wine beers.

My favorite barrel-aged barleywine. Alcohol is well-hidden, all things considered. Nice sweet toffee and bread notes with vanilla and stewed fruit. Light up the fire and chill out for a long winter’s nap.
