4.53/5 rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Served in a 16 oz. Snifter.
Tanks to TATURBO for this one!
A- Pours a dark copper, nearly brown. 1 finger cola head that dissipates quickly. Almost no lacing.
S- amazing blend of chocolate, toffee, vanilla, bourbon and some leather for good measure.
T- sweet toffee and caramel, dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and I get some sort of tobacco or earthy characteristic as well.
M- full bodied but not real syrupy. Abv is noticeable but not too hot, and it leaves you with a slightly dry mouth but you still beg for more.
O- amazing, amazing beer. Haven't had King Henry since fobab so really can't compare, so I am going to say this is the best Barleywine I have ever had!

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.
