Have had this beer many times and have had many different vintages, both aged and fresh. This rating is from a fresh-ish bottle.
Pours a deep dark amber that only shows through the light with a creamy light tan head that has a great retention. The aroma holds a great deal of caramel malt, some citrus and some dark fruit. The flavor holds a great balance between a grapefruit/grass hop flavor and caramel malt, there’s also elements of plum, brandy, and alcohol. Full bodied and supermalty over the tounge with a bitter finish gives this brew a great bittersweet experience over all. Truly the quintessential American style barleywine.
