It is time I put a review down for this. After many vintages, and just recently having the 2013 release...this is a great barleywine.

A: Pours a dark copper orange color. A one finger beige head rises and sticks around for a bit. Light lace is left as this recedes.
S: Toasted malts, burnt sugars, caramel. Baked bread, chocolate. Slightly piney hops in the finish. Incredibly warming and inviting.
T: Like the nose a huge malty character. Toasted malts, baked bread, burnt caramel sugars. Maybe some dark fruits and chocolate comes next. That finishes with a slightly spicy, piney hop bite.
M/D: A full body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and velvety. A great slow and warming sipper to hug all night. I love it.

One of my favorite barleywines. It actually reminds me a lot of aged Real Ale Sisyphus (which is a criminally underrated barelywine in Texas). Always a treat to drink, and I am glad I have had the chance to try it on many different occasions.
