Have had multiple times, but reviewing blind on 12/23/11 as part of a "BA barleywine" tasting. Finished #4 of 6 for me.

A - Medium reddish brown with no head.

S - Maple, cherry and fig with vanilla

T - Very sweet up front, with a bit of bitterness to balance, then a strange, somewhat unenjoyable yeasty finish. I don't remember this from previous bottles, so it sort of threw me off. After a bit of oxygen exposure, I notesed a little tart/sour aftertaste, as well as a touch of soy

M - Sharper carbonation, medium body, a bit of heat and a buttery tartness on cheaks.

O - Pretty good, lots going on, but I worry that this beer is just starting to turn. It's also a bit boozier thatn I would've expected.
