Taste starts with medium sweet toasted malt and caramel, following fruity with candy sugar note and mild spiciness, mouthfeel is warming with well hidden alcohol, while finish is mild bitter. Full body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Mine was better than yours...

ineedbeer (2081) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Poured from a 375 ml bottle with a 2024 best by date. Aroma is very malt forward with lots of caramel, toasted bread and hints of toffee. Some light honey notes. Some medium light hop notes that are woodsy and herbal. Light burnt sugar notes. Pours brown with some burnt amber hues and a medium sized, thick, tan head that recedes slowly to this edges where it lingers as a thin film. Medium light lacing and medium legs. Flavor is very sweet with lots of caramel, light toffee and burnt sugar. Light honey notes. Moderate raisin and dried stone fruit character. Medium to medium high bitterness with a light woodsy hop note. Light alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low, but present alcohol warmth. Overall, a decent barleywine. The sweetness is a bit too much, but the malt profile is nice and the hops and bitterness are fairly well balanced.
