This bottle was a 22 oz bomber from 2000. It was not labeled with the year, but it was kept specifically to age it. So this was about 4 years old.
The color is a brownish red cloudy color with a great head. The head thins as expected from a barley wine style beer. The nose is of soy sauce, caramel, molasses, and salt. The flavor is clean and complex with a toasty character. It has caramel and nuts in it and is a bit like a porter.
I drank this beer with some friends who were not as into it as I, so I finished most of the bottle by myself. I had tasted the beer many times before, but aged it is just superb. I enjoyed every last sip of this bottle, so the drinkability has to be a 5.
