2010 Vintage. Reviewed 11/4/11.

Opaque, umber body. One finger, light tan head. Very dense. Large compact bubbles produce a nice, protective cover.

Lots of citrus and floral hop aromas. Biscuit malts and some honey sweetness. Caramel covered green apples.

Lots of caramel sweetness, with some fruit flavors. Apples and tart apricots. Loads of juicy citrus hops, with a touch of holiday spice. Boozy and warming on the finish. Perfect carbonation.

Wasn't blown away by this, but it's a solid and tasty barleywine.
