4.5/5 rDev +0.9%

Shared by Huhzubendah.. Thanks Matt!
Pours a dark brown color with a really nice one finger cocoa head. Amazing head for a 13.5% beer. Good lacing on the side of my tulip glass. I get toffee, bourbon, coffee, vanilla, caramel, and some alcohol in the nose. Really balanced, and just about perfect nose. The taste is outstanding! The same profile as the nose, except better. Very balanced, and smooth, and amazingly drinkable. Feel is medium full with a tiny bit of dryness, and a smooth/bitter finish. Overall, this is a world class English Barleywine. Really glad I got to try this one. Cheers!

4.19/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear auburn color, with 1/2" of light khaki colored head. pretty nice retention time, and ultimately reduced down to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. minimal lacing.
Smell: Rich, sticky toffee, vanilla, hints of wood, medium amount of oxidation, which does not retract too much, and is reasonable considering this is 4 years old.
Taste: Toffee, caramel, sherry, wood, vanilla, and hints of oxidation, although not as prevalent as the nose. Sweet, but not too much so especially for this style.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full mouthfeel, appropriate carbonation, sticky with residual sugars. Again, good. Overall, this probably would have been better a year ago, but still has retained much of its quality. A bit oxidized, but does not affect the beer too much overall. I have a 2011 that I will open very soon and hope it has faded a bit less than this.
