UPDATED: FEB 20, 2018 On tap at World of Beer (Charlottesville, VA). Aromas of cherry, red berry, raisin, plum. Clear ruby with a mostly fading off-white head. Strong but not boozy, red berry fruit-forward, a little sweet, malty. Full bodied.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2018 Definitely one of the better barleywine's I've had. Pours a deep dark red with nice head. Taste punches through with a great malt backbone but maintains a nice hop bitterness. Truly worth trying if you like a damn good barleywine.

justkoehn (176) - Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Medium lacing and slight ring of head. Sweet barley wine malty aroma. Notes of red in the appearance. Sits easy on the tongue. Smooth finish with notes of prune and mild hops.

OsuStu (292) - - JAN 7, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2018 12 oz bottle. Hazy brown pour with a big, lasting khaki head. Aroma is dark dried fruits, figs, prunes, and raisins with spices and spruce. Flavors include similar dried dark fruits with cherries, some pepperiness, wood, black tea. Finishes with a bit of piney bitterness. Somewhat boozy. Silky feel.

On sale at Hoppy House BB 10/02/2015 >> Beau corps malté grenat sans col qui exhale des senteurs de caramel, de bois une âcreté maltée, et une amertume aigrelette.A l'attaque, la bouche est fort crémeuse,un peu épaisse sur des notes liquoreuses: c'est d'abord caramélisé puis boisé puis fort acre, et le tout très moelleux et doux. En s'épanouissant, la gorgée livre des saveurs plus épicées de vanille, de réglisse, et de fruits comme la mûre, la datte et la figue mais discretes.En finale je reste sur le caramel et une pointe d'aigreur. Je pense qu'elle commençait tout juste à s'équilibrer. poech push #471
