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.
