Lucky to have split this CCB brew with J. Morey. Thanks so much.
Poured a Dark brown, almost black with no light shining through at all. Slight foamy tan head, that dissipated to a frothy ring around the edge of the glass while sipping. Smells of brown sugar, toffee and the brandy comes through. Taste is much of the same, but with an amazing warmth in my chest after just my first sip. Burnt sugar, toffee, and dark fruit really broke through after it warmed. This was a Great English Style Barleywine. Non of that sticky resinous Hop feel, like some if its American BarleyWine Brethren.

Taste is slightly dry, oak, butterscotch, toffee, dark sugar, raisins, caramel malts, grass, hay, chocolate. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice.
Slightly translucent mahogany brown color, thin beige head. Caramel, apple, vanilla, oak, burnt sugar, and some molasses. Batch 1 is woodier, drier, and more bitter.
