Brandy barrel aged Fred, sampled at ACBF. Egg-white, very thin and quickly dissipating head, hazy orange blonde with warm amberish hue, a tad darker than the regular. Rich bouquet of orange zest, dried mango, sweet white wine, cognac, wet oak, fermented pineapple, biscuit. Sweet onset with lots of residual sugars, fruity with a sourish touch, soft carbo, thick, fluffy and bit vinous, opulent mouthfeel, lovely caramelly and biscuity malt sweet core, long finish adding drying woodiness to the overall sweetness as well as a considerable amount of indeed very cognac-like alcohol warmth, some spicy hops. Lush, almost decadent sweet barleywine, ideal slow sipper on a cold winter evening. Hair of the Dog rarely disappoints.

ACBF 2017. Thank you for sharing kraddel, tderoeck, Travlr & friends. Sampled draft. Deep murky brown amber, red hue with zero head. Nose is alcoholic, plastic, very boozy thick sugary malts, vinous, low rotting cherry. Taste is very alcoholic, sugar, boozy, christmas tree, very sugar, extreme alcohol, sweet Christmas spice, raisin, more alcohol. Body is flat, extreme sugar & extreme alcohol. Bit of a mess, expected more, especially given the base beer. The aging process definitely didn’t improve it.

Sampled from tap at ACBF 2017. Slightly hazy, dark brownish amber with a light beige head. Sweetish, a little sourish, moderately fruity aroma of caramel, honey, oak and a touch of vanilla. Rather sweet, malty, slightly sourish taste of caramel, honey, oak and a touch of vanilla, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly tart, warming finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!
