Tasted on 2/11/10 at The Ginger Man in NYC.
Draught poured into a 12oz. snifter.
Cola colored with a thin pale head and spotty lacing. Chocolate cake batter on the nose with a hint of malt vinegar and herbal hops.
The taste was much more mellow then my nose lead me to assume. There is a cocoa malt sweetness upfront with roasted malt and a kind of pretzel like bready quality. A very noticable piney hops presence shows up toward the finish and remains. The alcohol is definitely there, trademark of the style but it is surprizing subtle. Overall, a delicious well balanced barley wine.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
