750 ml bottle with cork and cage. Bottled on 3/23/11. Served at cellar temp.
Clean and clear dark amber-garnet body. Brilliant ruby edges. Big, rocky, thick, creamy, light dirty khaki head. Great lacing. Beautiful. Big, enticing, complex nose. Rich fruity malts mingle with toffee, coconut, manuka honey, vanilla, sweet rummy tropical fruits, and a slightly woody, tannic herbal edge.
Toasted malt quickly turns to strong caramel, fruit, and coconut malt sweetness. Notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon come on strong near the finish. Woody, herbal bitterness also picks up near the end and lingers long into the finish. Bourbon-soaked tropical fruits, coconut, and caramel also linger. Warming, but not overly boozy, even with the bourbon/oak presence. Full-bodied, with a smooth, creamy, mature feel. Delicious and very nicely done!

A big bottle and my Friday after work is looking all good. Poured into a snifter, there is a noticeable cork pop and a lot more head than I expected from a barley wine. It is black in color and the head is huge, rocky, and light tan. Very, very nice looking. The smell is apricots, molases, vanilla, a slight hoppiness, and my mouth is watering. The taste is phenomenal, with boozy fruit, wood, vanilla and a slight banana in there somewhere. It is dry but not too much so, with a noticeable alcohol warmth as it goes down. The hops are there just at the very start and then its all wood aging from there. You taste it, you smell it, and you really get the sense that the aging process rounded off the sharp edges on this. Really, really spectacular. The mouthfeel is pleasantly carbonated and a tad sticky. Overall, I think this is a fantastic barley wine. It is not sweet like most. It could, if anything, use a bit more sweetness and a bit less woody dryness but wow, just really terrific.
