Deep murky reddish brown pour into the glass with a quarter inch of khaki bubbles on top of the brew, can't see through this one at all! Aromas are big on fruit upfront with a rich caramel candy undertone. Toffee and maybe even some bubblegum. Super malty with some brown sugar and still some lingering hops as well.

First sip brings a plethora of deep, sweet malts upfront drenched in fruit flavors. Caramel, brown sugar and toffee again make themselves known. Citrus notes along with a slight bitter hop kick...however the sweet malts still win out as it flows down. Touch of spice and warming alcohol on the finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and rich with chewy malt throughout. Definitely a warming sipper of a barleywine that leaves a bit of a heat trail as it goes down. Glad to have tried it...would be great on a cold night maybe even with a nice cigar.
