The Simcoe and Amarillo hops ( harvested just weeks before brewing) are still sticky in this bottle. The smell is as if I were in the brew. You can't get a fresher hop aroma and taste. This beer is "right now ready" and, I'm sure, it will age well but, this is the most "drink now" Barleywine I've ever had. I'm doing you a favor by not describing this beer further. Go get some. This is as good as it gets

2002 Edition once again two and one half years later... It's blended now. I'm drinking from the same acquisition as my original review. The head is still nearly unmanageable. It took three pours to get it into the glass and there was still the yeast hit in the bottom of the bottle. The hops have mellowed but are still present. The mouthfeel is still creamy. It still rocks. I must take the pilgrimage back to Portland. .
