A - Pours a deep amber with a light tan/biscuity colored head. About what I'd expect from a barleywine.
S - A bit of caramel sweetness with bready malts and light spices. I'm not getting a lot of hops.
T - Burnt caramel & toffee dominate here... Not overly sweet... Big bready malts... Again, not a lot of hoppiness though there is a bit of bitterness at the end. Simple, but so pleasing.
M - Medium bodied, medium to full carbonation. Not overly cloying/sweet and has a wet finish.
O - They nailed it... Loving this release.

2012 vintage 750ml bottle number 731 generously sent to me by egadbananas, appreciate it. Ruby red color, good head that hangs on for along time given the abv. Aroma is alcohol, sugar, raisins, barleywine. Taste is exactly the same but also has hints of butterscotch and caramel. Overall this is a good barleywine, not too hoppy and seems to fit the style perfectly, enjoyable.

Parish Grand Reserve has a thick, soapy, and somewhat creamy, cream-colored head, a semi-clear, amber appearance, and some slight lacing left around the glass. The aroma is very sweet and bready, with a bit of hop spiciness in the sniff. The taste is of sweet, caramel, brown bread (think Roman Meal brand), sugar, toffee, and alcohol. Some piney hop bitterness shows up as well. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Parish Grand Reserve finishes mostly dry, mellow, smooth, and rather drinkable. Be warned- this will knock you down. Overall, it’s excellent, and I would love it if others could try it.

Enjoyed this one while pre-gaming going out jazz club hopping in New Orleans at Avenue Pub! Served from cask into an imperial pint. Poured brown with a one finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, caramel, wood, sweet alcohol, earth, and earth hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, wood, sweet alcohol, caramel, and subtle sugar. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. When I saw this one come up on the list at the upstairs bar at Avenue Pub I had to make the trek upstairs to check it out. I had never had a barleywine on cask without some sort of addition done to it, so this was definitely different. I actually liked the mellowness of it as some barleywines can be quite abrasive to the palate. I wish there would have been a little more of a hop presence going on though as it definitely would have helped. Glad I got the chance to try it, but I would love to try it on tap with a little more hoppiness though.

Appearance: little head. I blame the bartender
Smell: caramel molasses and spice. Good hop presence.
Taste: nice balance of malt and hops. More bitter than malty. Caramel with slight biscuit with hop bitterness on top and some alcohol (a good amount for winter)
Mouthfeel: chewy and alcohol numbing(in a good way) without tasting 11%.
Drink ability: a filling beer but hides its abc well. Great brew to drink in the cold months.
Overall: solid beer. Maybe the best brew produced in Louisiana.
Serving type: on-tap
