bottled. Deep brown ale w/ very minimal head. Malty nose. Complex rich palate. Peaty w/ herbal & vanilla hints. Thick/slick mouthfeel. Oak in the finish. Great for sipping but nothing out-of-this world. Still fresh thou.

Was not sure what to expect from this on since I have not had any barley wines. If it was a beer I would say it was a bit too boozie and flat but I think that is how it is mean to be.

PhillyCraft (6696) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2016
With Pat, Pours a hazy red color with creamy top. Aroma of vanilla, candy sugar, oak, dough, and maple syurp. Full bodied with a bunch of thick syrup. Too cloyingly sweet for me these days

bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of molasses and malt. Cloudy amber brown color, off-white head that drops to a thin cover, stripes of lace. Taste is strong alcoholic malt that has dark fruitcake fruit. It moves through medium fizz to a finish that shows alcohol growth rather than bittering. Very strong, a little too much to satisfy in more than 6oz doses. Doesnt work for me.

MaBeer1972 (1922) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Bottle from Julios. Poured into a snifter. A deep russet amber with a very thick light tan head. Very nice looking. Sweet earthy spice aroma. Flavor is on the sweet side with earthy spice notes. Slight bit of sweet vanilla. Somewhat balanced, but still a lot of sugar on the finish.

12 oz bottle from Elizabeth Station. Bottled 22-Jan-2016. Pours an opaque golden copper. Aroma is smokey, sweet maple and oak notes. Taste and aftertaste are pretty similar with boozy and hoppy bitterness. Good balanced beer.

I love scotch, so the peat-smoked barley was a great touch for me. The vanilla and maple syrup add nice complexity to this ale.
