From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. 2013 edition. Sampled on January 11, 2013.
I rarely drink barleywines this young. I like to let them sit and mellow. But in today I am getting a brown pour with ruby red notes, decent clarity, and a small head that simmers down to a ring and lingers.
The aroma is of barley malts, sweet sugar, paint thinner (in a good way), and caramel. The 9.6% ABV is more subtle than I would expect.
The body is medium.
The taste is malty up front but the hop bitterness penetrates the back of my throat and announces its presence in a big way. The alcohol is more notable in the taste.
