Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a snifter. I believe this has a couple years of age on it. Reviewed from last night's notes.
Appearance: Pours a deep caramel color and leaves a finger of off-white head.
Smell: Big oak, caramel, molasses, light pine hops, dark fruits. Pretty sweet but manageable; well balanced.
Taste: Sweet caramel, molasses, dark fruits, light hops. The alcohol is well hidden. Nice balance of sweet/bitter/alcohol.
Mouth-feel: Low to medium carbonation with a medium body. Finishes well balanced between bitter and sweet, fairly smooth.
Overall: Definitely a well balanced, big barleywine. I think age has smoothed it out a good amount. Not overly sweet.
Serving type: bottle
