Pours a caramel brown, settles a dark and thickly hazed golden-orangey brown color with a medium sized ivory fluffy froth. Lace sticks in inky webs at first but as it goes nearly no lace decides to stick. Notably strong twingey caramel/alcohol aroma at first but fades as it warms. Lushfully solid caramel nose with an alcoholic warmth and tone always sifting underneath. Notes of fresh banana, mango, orange, lingering dark dulled citrusy skins are favorably smokey within. Taste of darkened hard caramel candies, the caramel is very nice here, kinda dark or perhaps even scorched a little, not quite smooth, roughly edgy with some suppressed earthy tones in the hop backing. Nice touches of chocolate and butterscotch candies float around within and a moderate warmth and subdued burn along the way down keep it from being completely smooth and drinkable. Very light notes of fruit and citrus linger here and there. Feel is a bit hindered with a fluffy chalkyness, yet smooth and inviting smoothness continues to keep hold. Not an overly complex or beefy barleywine. Sits just right on a cold and windy March evening with a good load of malted caramel, something I'd have no problem having again.

poured really clear, and a dark amber. wow this is different. Light roasted malts, with sweet caramel in it. The smell is really sweet and roasty, inviting. Not near the hops of the [i]Avery[/i], but unique in it's own way.Roasted malts up front, and there are the hops, finishing of this brew. Noticeable alcohol in this brew, but not overbearing. Caramel malts in the middle. Really nice hop finish to this brew. Goes well with the nose and upfront malts. has a nice mix of flavors going on, solid finish.


Served In: Pint Glass
