Vintage 2014: Pours a deep dark reddish, amber. Thin light head remains briefly, withdrawing to sparse bubbles on the surface. Smell is actually much hoppier than I was expecting and there is very noticeable booze on the nose. Some dark fruits and brown sugar come through too. As for taste, the biggest thing I noticed is that while there is certainly still some molasses sweetness, this is one of the drier barley wines that I have had. Caramel, plum, hops, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is full bodied but not sticky and overly heavy like some barleywines can be. Low carbonation. Overall, a great barleywine, one of the more drinkable I've ever had. Lot's of hop character and not overly sweet. Only real complaint is that it is a bit boozey. I'm sure some aging would deal with that nicely.
