What the brewers say

“English-style barleywine aged in rum barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Rich, decadent caramel, toffee, bittersweet chocolate, and a hint of vanilla punctuate the nose. The sip integrates brown-sugar and tobacco-like elements and a hint of oxidation that work well within the lightly oaky sip. Boozy heft and full body, but remains drinkable.”

What our editors thought

“Deep chocolate caramel in the aroma, dark cacao with a leathery polish. Sweeter in the sip. Incredibly smooth and soft with light citrus highlights over deeper burnt caramel. Remarkably cohesive.”
