Cellar temp, bottle to pint tumbler.
Nice clingy head, better than most barley-wine. Deep amber, with near brilliant clarity.
I smell yeast byproduct at first pour, reminds me of bock yeast. Quickly turns into citrus candy and sweet malt.
Initial sip is bitter spruce tea, mixed with a bit of spearmint. Just a hint of sweetness but balance definitely leans toward bitter.
Year after year, it amazes me the quality of this barley-wine on such a grandiose scale. The one against which all else are measured.
