2014 edition.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip on 04.10.14.

A: 3 finger head. Cloudy opaque purple/red.

S: Pine, grapefruit. There is more that I can't pick out easily. Very strong and complex.

T: Pine, malt, raisins dominate. Caramel is there too.

M: Creamy smooth.

O: This was my first barleywine and it was a confusing experience. It was like an APA or an IPA mixed with prune juice. It was bitter first, then a raisin sweetness took over with a bitter finish. There was some alcohol burn too. This one needs to be sipped for sure. I'd like to age some of this since it's so cheap and see how it changes.

Rating: B
