On tap at the brewery. Pours with a murky bronze hue with a rather minimal off-white head. Decent lace though. Aromas are exaggerated dark fruits, raisins, fig, fig newton, dates, caramel, vinous, red currant. Dark fruit esters every where. Flavors are quite sweet and quite boozy. A good amount of bitterness but no real balance. Tons of dark fruits, medium to low bubbles. Thick. Alcohol is somewhat obvious.

Growler thanks to shp555: Pours a transparent copper amber amber with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy grapefruity hops and rich caramely malt with a fresh light fruity character. Starts fairly full and caramely sweet with a toasty malty and dark caramel sweetness with a lot of light fruity complexity before and alightly drier finish. A pretty nice barleywine.

Tap @ Wynkoop. Pours a dark maroon body with a creamy tan head. Quite sweet and sugary, winelike and hoppy nose. Pretty powerful sweet, fairly well hopped body that’s pretty enjoyable. Alcohol and a bit of a burn in the finish. Oak aged and that flavor really comes out nicely without being overpowering. Pretty well done.
