Bought this at a local liquor store. I was quite glad to find something that was over 4% in this part of the state.
Although the malt profile of this beer is well balanced, it came across as a little bland: lacking in richness. The taste of candi sugar is quite evident to the tongue and throat. A winning side of this beer is the well hiden alcohol content and and low acidity. The hop profile is also nicely balanced and mild.
Even after drinking this beer on a hot-summer afternoon, I did not felt the 9.8% alcohol at work. Like all other beers I have had in this state so far, the alcohol present feels lower than the stated alcohol content on the label, even if it means 4%. The lack of richness and alcohol-feel to this beer makes it very drinkable.

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.
