22 oz bottle, 2010 vintage, so about 3 years old.

nice dark amber color, fairly clear. creamy off-white colored head that fades to a thin covering. slightly boozy aroma with earthy hoppy notes. nice rich caramel taste with slightly hoppy aftertaste. smooth mouthfeel, coats the mouth. lower carbonation.

overall a nice barleywine, the time has done it well.

a nice barleywine here, different than the conventional English versions. this is a blonde beer, which threw me off on the pour, a bit cloudy and boasting a tall and lasting inch of white head. the nose on it is surprisingly hoppy too, especially in the context of other middle ages beers, which tend not to be the most aggressively hopped ales around. wheat malt, warming booze, candy sugar, and a pleasantly complex and bright strain of ale yeast. it opens up a lot as it warms, and the sweetness is only for a second before hop bitterness takes over. the interplay between yeast and hops here is extraordinary. the alcohol flavors come across a little strong though, and slow this beers drinkability, even for a barleywine. a bomber of this is a few ounces too much really, at least for me. still the happy carbonation and lighter body for the style make it a really unique brew. good stuff here from middle ages.
