12 oz 2014 vintage

A - pours deep hazy orange - plenty of sediment in bottle. Thin head with good lacing
S - sweet malt with typical barleywine nose of rich malt
T - still quite bitter with hints of dried apricots and honey coming through in the sweetness
M - rich and thick

Overall a really tasty beer - Barleywines are usually not my thing, but this is really good - glad to have a few put aside to age!
