Nice appearance and aroma, but the taste fades. Might have sat on this too long, which is surprising for a 2010 barleywine. Not a bad barleywine but others at the same price point are much better. I remember having this when it first came out and it had a better bite to it. Aging doesn't help this beer, but instead, hurts it.

Strong, fruity aroma has notes of sweet apple and banana and a malty undertone plus a touch of yeast. It pours a clear, dark copper, almost mahogany, with a fluffy and rather persistent beige head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Fruity flavor is rather brandy-like, what I expect from a good barleywine, with a fair alcohol bite and a woody undertone. It is a bit sweet, and the flavor lacks depth; still, it is pleasing. Texture has above-average body but only average fizz, and leaves a fruity and woody finish. I’ve had better, but this is acceptable.

Bottle of 2010, bottled date of 3-30-10, poured on 1-19-12. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a bright, reddish brown coloring that is opaque and smooth in appearance, with a thin ring of bubbling around the edge of the surface. Aromas of slight roasting and very heavy malt presence, with an interesting fruit blend of what seems to be pineapple and other tropical fruits, and a subtle hopping at the tail end. Flavors are heavier in the fruit sweet blend, but with a more prominent hops profile. The hops are very piney, with a heavy roasting at the end of the palate. The heavy malt aromas play out into a more subtle, toffee malt backbone that brings balance to the lighter, spicier characteristics. The aftertaste is more of a toffee tang, with a good kick of the pineapple flavor. The finish is quick, and surprisingly clean for the style, as well as for this particular beer with all the malty and fruit sweetness throughout it. Solid Barleywine.

Poured 12 oz bottle dated 8/30/10 aggressively into a 20 oz Duvel tulip. Pours a bright reddish orange, with fluffy white 3 inch head, that leaves some nice lace. Smell is lots of Carmel, fig, bready esters, and some alcohol. Taste is similar, carmel and dark fruits dominate. Mouthfeel is on the large side, enough life, not overly dry, and fairly easy drinking. This is a solid example, more English Barley Wine.
