2012. Thanks to MrKennedy for sharing. Reviewed from notes.

Brooding blood-mahogany with an airy saffron head that falls summarily to zip.

Nicely fortified notes of rum 'n' raisin, prunes, caramel, liquorice, sour cherry, cola and mild plastic.

Barrel rises to the fore in the flavours, which are impressively rich. Sticky date pudding, muscatels, toffee apple, muscovado sugar.

Full and syrupy, but in keeping with the ABV. Similarly there's decent booze heat but it's welcome.

Immense barleywine that is easier to drink than the 2011 Stormwatchers that preceded it on the evening, but also lacks a bit of complexity. Would be interested to see whether it opens up with 5+ years of age.
