The Treblehook pours a dark cherry wood/garnet color with a good sized head. The aroma is sweet and malty with background smells of hops and some light spices. The flavor is reminiscent of little chocolate - like RedHook states - with some impressions of bourbon and deep woody herb. It has a smooth, but aggressive hop presence, larger than you normally find in a Barleywine. Sweet caramel plays with berries and steps near the line of boozy, but doesn't cross it.
If you're ready to go double digit big, this is a greatbarley wine to pick up during the winter. This is a brew I will definitely pick up again.

I won’t go into just how much fun I had in Vegas recently, but suffice it to say I ended up staying an extra two days and switching hotels to a Palm suite, the bastardized version of the Playboy Palm Suite. Sweet, nonetheless.
I arrived at the San Diego Festival of Beer in downtown San Diego on Friday, September 18th, on the corner of Columbia and B Street, near the W Hotel. The two girls at the front table directed me to security around the corner, because I wasn't on the list. After informing them that I was press, and supposed to be on the list, they directed me back to the table with the girls.
