12oz bottle 2010 vintage. Aged 2.5 years. Pours a reddish brandy like hue with a small beige head and light lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, fruity, yeasty with a kind of brandy like alcohol esters fill the senses. Taste is of caramel malt, yeast with a brandy like fruity flavor. Palate is a full body, smooth and nicely balanced with a sweet slight bitterness and sticky mouth feel. Finishes with a nice caramel malt, yeast and fruity with slight bitter notes, undoubtedly tamed by the aging. Aroma and flavor intensify as it warms up. Overall a very good, smooth drinking, flavorful and nicely balanced Barley wine. very nice.
