Appearance is a murky, dark brown beer, nearly opaque. The small tan head leaves a good lacing behind and shows fair retention.

Strong, pleasing aromas feature molasses and caramel, as this is very malty. Other smells include earthy, woody/oak notes plus vanilla. Also dark, ripened fruits like figs, dates, and overripe bananas. I don't really get any whiskey or bourbon aromas.

The taste is very rich and malty. Tons of malt give it a sweet taste, but there's also a significant dose of hops to lend an earthy and piney bitterness. The alcohol warmth is notable at 11.1% for some boozy effects.

Mouthfeel is creamy on this thick-bodied brew. Carbonation is low. The beer seems to have a staleness/oxidation downside to it that may be attributed to the age. Fortunately this seems to lessen as the beers warms up a bit.

Overall a very good Barleywine with a few detractions.

Poured at the Tipples Rare and Barrel Aged Beer Tasting on July 13, 2014. Pours murky light brown with a fluffy white head on top. Aroma is unexpected with huge lemony citrus peel and not much else. Flavor follows with more big lemons--like chewing on the fruit--and very light caramel. Really not much else going on here, and while the flavor is only described as lemony, it isn't particularly bitter either. Maybe I'm drinking lemon Pinesol? Light to medium bodied--strange for a barleywine, particularly one aged in barrels--with medium plus carbonation. This was weird. Pretty much the exact opposite of expectations going in on a BA Barleywine. I can't say it was bad, just not right.
