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: Brownish with a light mocha head.
S: Smells like a typical barleywine, red berries, and dark fruit as well as floral and citric hop character in the nose.
T: Taste is pretty similar, but with lots of oak. Doesn't really taste bourbony. No caramel or vanilla., very hop forward, lots of floral and piney hops. Some citrus a bit of caramel and vanilla as it warms up. Basically tastes like they took their anniversary barleywine and put in on fresh oak for a few months.
M: Full bodied and smooth enough.
O: Bourbon character is unfortunately absent for the most part. This is still a good barleywine, but it's no Sucaba, Samael's Ale or Angel's Share. Recommended if you like American-style barleywines
