2011 edition, poured from a bottle into my Duvel Tulip
A-A dark chestnut with hints of red throughout, a large white head that lasts and leaves excellent lacing.
S-Malt, slight hops, alcohol, and fruit take up the majority of the nose.
T-The alcohol is a bit overwhelming in this one, even though I know it is a high abv beer, it seems to be even more, port-esque in alcohol level. Barley, fruit and slight hop wrap up the rest of the taste, which really is complex, just unfortunately a little masked in the alcohol presence.
M-Full bodied with excellent carbonation.
D-A good barleywine but I feel there are much better examples of the style.
