What the brewers say

“A cold-weather beer with notes of dry fruit and marmalade.”

What our panel thought

“Classic stone fruit and British fermentation. Bold dark-fruit notes wrapped in sweet caramel. Raisin, date, plum. More on the toast side, but appropriate. Nice toffee finish, but a bit cloying.”

What our editors thought

“Dry, woody, and a bit grainy in the aroma with some sweeter caramel notes that feel a bit more like brown ale than barleywine. That “big brown ale” note carries through in the flavor, with a lean and woody hop edge through the sparing dry body.”
