Served from a Sierra Nevada Barleywine Style Ale 25th Expedition bottle. Vintage Label 2008.
A- POurs a thich creamy tan head that continues to lace throughout. Hazy brown body....very deep.
S- Fruity, aged dark fruit with deep aromas. Mashed grape and bing cherries...very aged. Almost a cask aged honey in the background.
T- SOmewhat the same as the smell, with more of a vintage red wine bitterness on the palate. Bitter and a touch of honey. The hops come through at the end with a finishing bitterness. Spendid. For one of my least favorite styles this is quite and excellent beer.
M- High carbonation with a mild ETOH burn with the swallow. Getting a oah or some form of cask feel as well
D- Somewhat above average for the style...nevertheless couldn't do more than two in a night before I long for an IPA.
Big ups to Shawan Liquiors in Timonium, MD for this aged doozy. Awesome spot you guys have there!
