Quite lovely. Unusual for a barleywine, it's not extraordinarily malty. Spice notes, lots of rye whiskey in the mouth, and quite boozy, all wrapped up in a surprisingly creamy mouth feel from lively carbonation but really small bubbles. More dark fruit comes out as it warms in the glass.
Nice and boozy can definitely taste the rye should have aged it for a bit though
This is as*almost* as sweet and refreshing as a Trappistes Rochefort 10, although it has some bitterness not present in that Belgian ale. It's still very drinkable, though.
Good barely. Don’t taste any barrel but very good barley.
Great beer. Fruit, caramel, and vanilla. Really good oak finish. Delicious.
This is everything I love about a Barley wine...with just a little funk. Great job on this one.
I have one more in the fridge, waiting forever a special occasion. I can’t wait to open and share it with a good friend. So delicious and rich.
Smooth and rich, boubony
Definitely not a bad beer...different than what I am used to and/or want in a stout. Tasted more like a rye with a hint of stout. That might rock for some, but not my deal! Definitely added extra hair to chest.
