Poured into a 5.5 oz taster glass as part of a Founders tasting @ Tavern on Liberty in Allentown.
A: Pours jet black with ruby red around the edges and a mild ring of tan lacing. (Great head considering the serving glass and time it took to get to me after pouring.)
S: Vibrant floral hops and light roasted malts leading to a sweet malty backbone.
T: Very much like the smell, only a bit more complex than it suggests, as the flavors blend together perfectly and the hops aren't overly bitter. Also, the alcohol is unnoticeable for such a high ABV.
M: This is what sets this one apart from the rest at the tasting: Medium bodied, great carbonation, smooth finish.
O: I think this was a great beer on tap, and I need to revisit it in the bottle while the bottles still have some hoppiness left in them. Personally, I liked this a lot more than the CBS or KBS, as it was much more drinkable than either one, and I don't recall that being the case with this or KBS in bottle form.
Serving type: on-tap

2010 Vintage poured into Goose Island Tulip
A: Pours a dark chocolate color with some light dusting on top. Visible carbonation rising, mocha colored small bubbles.
S: Aroma of deep rich caramel, chocolate malt and a healthy dosing of bittering hops as well as aroma hops. Some coffee and prominent licorice scents.
T: Very bitter off the bat, early hop additions, and sweet malt caramelized sugar presence. Chocolate and coffee flavors strong and licorice at the end of the spectrum. Toffee and cotton candy blend together nicely and have a very interesting blend of flavors. The one thing I get at the end is a little cardboard presence. Slight oxidation to an otherwise very flavorful beer. For a 3 year old beer, I am enjoying the flavoring hops and the oxidation seems to be the only drawback.
M: Medium to full body mouthfeel, slightly thick.
O: Overall a very good barleywine. I wonder if they will brew this again one day or if it will make it to distribution again.
