look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. 2012 vintage.

A: Pours a dark amber color with a half finger head and some lacing.

S: Nice sweet smell of dark fruits with a touch of alcohol.

T: Nice caramel sweetness up front. Not as much dark fruit flavor as there is in the smell. Hops are present as well. Hides the alcohol very well.

M: Moderately heavy bodied with light carbonation. Super smooth!!

O: This is an excellent Barleywine! I've got a bottle of this years vintage to try as well and I'm very excited. I'll be picking up some more of both years to sit on for a while.
