12-oz. bottle into a pint glass at my house on Sept. 7, 2012 (purchased at Cost Plus World Market in Grossmont (San Diego, Calif.) for a 4-pack price of $9.99 on Sept. 6, 2012). One finger of head. Poured a mahogany with tan head. Very good retention on the top and on the side (foamy and fairly balanced).
Smelled a lot of different flavors. Got caramel, dark fruits, chocolate and toffee.
Taste was a bit surprising. Thought it would be a bit stronger, but it wasn’t initially. Overall it was similar to the nose. Got caramel, toffee, dark fruits and slight red wine. Big alcohol taste came late. Slight hops somewhere in there as well.
Full-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. Made my body warm. Definitely could feel the alcohol about halfway in.
Very good barleywine. Great mix of flavors that hides the alcohol nicely.

My bottle was picked up from a bottle shop the date of the bottled on is 10/12/12...I bought it 2/28/14. Overall appears a deep murky mahogany brown hue big tan head forming thick, with fine speckled lacing. Smells like an aged barleywine, what does that mean the hops have tamed, the malts are full of over ripened fruit and big alcohol notes. The smell is of spicy plum and raisin notes, that I can't quit sniffing on. Dark fruit, brown sugar, malt layers in the flavor, nothing like an aged Bigfoot, a hint of diacetyl or wet cardboard in the malt character just from oxidation. Plum and dark fruit sugars coat the palate, not bad at all...well aged smoothed out Anniversary IPA bottled on 10/12/12. Mouthfeel is creamy, effervescent carbonation medium bodied texture. Overall it's good barleywine, I'm intrigued to see what this beer tastes like fresh, with 2 years of age it's fantastic.
