SRM19. Very apple cider colored brew. Not much head from the bottle in tulip glass. Very fruity aromas of cherries. Decently carbonated. Very fruity flavored and very sweet. Finishes fruity like a cider. Very unique and full bodied.

2012 - Mad Fox Barleywine Fest 2013 What I expect from a barleywine. Potent syrupy sweet.

Tasty barley-wine, not very strong-flavored.

2012 below decks ( not aged in bourbon barrels ). First drink was too malty. But there after good. Bitter after taste. Color is a red amber. Aroma is light with a slight alcohol fragrance. Overall good. I will age the other bottle for some time.

So far, the best Barley Wine I have ever had. I have a new one to try tonight though.. So far the best! profile - June 18, 2012
Quite malty, can definitely taste the bourbon cask. Has a hint of coconut meat and almonds. Tastes delicious from out of the fridge to room temp. Packs a punch! profile - May 19, 2012
Sweet odor, sweet malt body. Deep amber color, alcohol heat finish... Molasses, hazelnut... Delicious beer.

Draft: This tasting note is specifically for Heavy Seas Below Decks aged in Bourbon Oak barrels. The barrel aging results in a complex flavor and pleasing aroma that far exceeds your typical barleywine. Only released in February due to the long fementation/aging process... if you see it on tap, get it!
