To Øl, Babushka: Barleywine brewed with plums and figs and aged in port barrels. 13.5% The idea stated by the brewers was to create three layers of port: the barleywine base, the fruit and the aromas and sugars of the barrel. This bottle poured a rich head, color a muted garnet ( for those who care). All kinds of fruit flavors--cherry and whatnot--some coffee as it warms. This is sweet, but neither candy/fruit up front nor the cloying bite of some barleywines. Very balanced and hides its strength nicely. As to the brewers' goal it sits between a tawny and garrafeira port.
