Orange brown color with a thin layer of tan foam. Sweet malty caramel candy and apple aroma. Nice chewy maltiness layered with dark fruits and molasses. Picking up some nice brandy flavors. Finishes with a crisp hoppy bite that sits on the tongue for a while.
FINAL SCORE 4.2/5
Cloud brown color with not head or carbonation. Strong but not overwhelming whiskey aroma. Wow, the taste is like licking a whiskey barrel. Notes of vanilla, butter and oak. The palate is a bit flat.

Dark brown-purplish color with thin white head. Aroma of chocolate malt, biscuits, maple syrup and bourbon. Taste is…hello flavor country, we’ve got a whole lot of complexity going on here: Vanilla, raisins, toasted malt, molasses, bourbon. The finish has another layer of oakiness followed by a tart sweetness. Surprisingly light body for a barleywine. More please.
4.7 out of 5
Brown-black with thin beige head. Malty bready aroma with a tinge of
floral spicyness. Chewy mouthful with raisins, molasses, and some
orange. Alcohol kicks in at the end with a generous amount of hops to
singe the tongue.
