2012. Pours much darker than every previous year of MoaS: very dark brown with way more head than its older siblings.

Caramely aroma, strongly malty, a kiss of dark fruits to round things out. Black licorice and molasses join the caramel train across my palate. Meadows of malts are a safe haven for all things barleywine-y.

The 2012 is a clear departure from previous vintages of MoaS, and I like what they've done with the place. Excited to see how this develops with age.
