Doesnt taste like beer. Strap yourself in for an out of body fruit alcohol experience.

Geez this one is dangerous! 15% abv and drinks way too smooth. Copper in color with a slight white head and aromas of sweet prunes raisins and bready malt. Very viscous thick mouthfeel syrupy with an ice wine viscous ness to it. Very sweet bready rich and strong. Sweet fruity flavors, like raisins and booze. A good barley wine but very sweet. Had aged today for 3yrs (2012) and its 2015. So good it's like smooth vanilla bourbon, has a nice oaky character to it. Does pack a wallop! Same with the 2014 version 3 years later!

Kind of thick mouthfeel, very strong. Sweet fruity flavors, almost raisiny. Good for a winter evening.

Alcohol present, but drinkable. Sweet and a bit fruity
