Consistent through the years. Beautiful deep malt, full bodied, robust and smooth. The 2014 release is nothing if not just as good as their previous editions. Sits well too, I just recently opened one of the 1999's I had in my cellar, and it was a life altering event. Bottle ages very well, flavors matured to add a nice chocolate/coffee punch, with little to no acidity to report on the finish. Enjoy a few now, but I highly recommend you set a few aside to age. Time does this beer very well.

Barley Wine really isn't my thing, so...take it for what it's worth. Seems like a quality, though.
