Draft: Poured a orange coppery with an off white head. Aroma is boozy fruit with some woodsiness. The taste is a bit booze but definitely a sweet caramel keeps it stick and balanced.

On tap @ Humpy’s. Murky reddish brown with a small off white head and lacing. Aroma is toffee, dark fruit, vanilla and oak. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, alcohol heat and some oak tanins. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Nice barley wine, lots of sweet toffee and caramel with a big vanilla/oak character.
