On tap at Craft Covent Garden, black dark brown colour lasting thin tan head. Some barrel age. Again it’s a big beer. Unsubtle. Mostly just huge and overwhelming. Some barley wine character kicks in. Just a bit aggressive for me. Sone apple. MrTipple (5956) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015

Mouthfeel is smooth and somewhat oily with low carbonation and medium body. Very good! Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Pours very thick not quite murky dark unclear pitch brown with a beige head. The aroma brings huge lightly sweet perfumey wine like malts with even some caramel and chocolate notes. The flavor is my favorite part bringing chocolatey caramel sweet malts so nice on the palate with a big malty but super smooth balanced sweetness bringing a beautifully huge and balanced BA barleywine.
