Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue XI:

Happy 15 years, guys; only the best for the next 15! Oh, a generously hopped Barleywine ... something to sink our teeth into.

Bright clarity shows a rich-looking mahogany color, latte foam head comes and leaves with a sticky lace. Very aromatic with grapefruit zest, spearmint and tobacco from the hops, and a showing of caramel, figs and cookie dough from the malt and yeast. Smooth and creamy with a semi-slick medium to full body. Hops come in throwing bitterness around; lots of citric rind and tobacco bitterness that just does not want to shake off of the taste buds. Underneath sits the malt backbone, which has a lot of hop weight pressing down on it, but the foundation is sound enough to see this beer through. Hint of caramel and toasted bread in the middle is mostly squashed by the hops. Alcohol chimes in with a warmth and fresh fig fruitiness. Finishes with some maltiness, though the hops are still going strong even in the aftertaste.

Damn, this beer is bitter ... lovely, but bitter. Hopheads should rally to this beer. Cellaring should not even be a factor here as it is so delicious in its fresh form. Love the hops now.

Pours out a slightly murky brown body with a thin head. Smells of caramel, dried fruit, figs, piloncillo, and PNW hops. Tastes sweet; lots of caramelized malts. Very toasty: more so than I would have imagined from the taste. Aftertaste has some roasty coffee notes. Hops are prominent and resinous/grassy. Mouthfeel is fullish with some tingly carbonation. Overall, this is a solid barleywine, but nothing to go crazy about.
