2011 vintage. Had to try one of these now, picked up three at $2.50 a pop.
Looks marvelous. Giant fuming head that formed an island on the surface when it subsided. Garnet-colored body, manila folder color on the foam. Heart of the brew boasts a spiky yeast monster. Freckles of sediment abound. Sticky lacing coating thick. Beautiful looking.
Aromas of leafy hops, caramel, malt sweetness, nectarine pulp, pine sap, and citric zest. Wonderful nose.
Bitter hops, caramel, jasmine tea, earth, tangy astringency, and a bit of the alcohol squeaking through.
Feels piquant/spicy. A little hot. Medium-full body. Coats the tongue. The hops do something to sting the back of the throat.
This is a most memorable barleywine. Haven't had this in years! Top-notch!
