Kind of like a lighter dark, rich stout. Enjoyable. Good with dessert

Yummy. Not too heavy easy drinkin barley wine. profile - January 12, 2014
Excellent flavor and character. Hoppy but more to the sweet side. Packed a nice kick as well. Have made subsequent purchases

Pours amber from the tap. Smell: booze, malt, green raisin. Taste: smooth malt flavor with caramel-like thickness that balances the booze beautifully. Overall: weak for a Barleywine, but very good and smooth.

Think sweet imperial IPA. It is hop forward with a malt build of a barley wine. Certain Imperial IPAs do have a big malt build (unavoidably), but they are not so sweet like this barley wine. It reminds me of a lower abv 120 Minute IPA. Enjoy fresh

Black cherry, over ripe strawberry, celery, and smoke on the nose. Fleur de sal, molasses, soy sauce, burnt sugar on the mouth. Nice long bitter finish. Decent if you like em barley whiney.

Hoppy. Nice malt backbone. Pretty well-balanced. The hops have a bit of an odd taste to them. Mineral-y maybe? Overall, an enjoyable (and strong) beer.
