In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated
Seventh Son Brewing Murmuration
"Aroma more like barleywine—big barrel, vanilla, caramel malt, booze, a bit of chocolate. Umami hints. In flavor, sweet caramel fades through prune and coffee liqueur notes. Low bitterness. Warming alcohol and barrel-spice. Finish doesn’t cloy. Boozy, rich, complex without being a punch in the mouth."
