I had no idea what I had in my fridge. This has been sitting in my fridge since last summer. That's 2005! Holy Crap! I can't believe I waited so long to try this.
A: Poured into and IPA glass a dark coffee with red highligts. Foam only came from the last pour of the bottle leaving around a 1/4" of head which has remained around the rim.
S: Oranges. Grapes, chocolate, maltiness.Maybe some apples? Alcohol.
T: Sweet (grapes and apples) and malty (chocolate and coffee). Oh, and some Hops kick it in the rear! For an bittery alcohol leave.
M: Bittery sweet and silky smooth.
D: Not everyday but this is my first Barleywine so, I am not used to them yet.

Notes taken on my phone a few nights ago. Huge thanks to my cousin Sonny for sharing this one with me, an all-time Want for me. Wish I had my notebook but the notes will have to suffice.
A- Poured to a wine glass with a dark brown almost opaque body. Small foamy white head forms but quickly recedes to the edges as a small ring. Spotty lacing for the most part but some nice patches around the glass.
S- Deep bourbon and huge old ale aroma blasts out of the bottle, I could smell it right as I broke the seal. Bourbon is not alcoholic feeling but quite smooth while remaining strong aromatically. Rich caramel sweet base and some raisin, slight cocoa dark malts.
T- Follows the nose very well, rich and decadent old ale with a great barrel bourbon feel blended in. The old ale base reminds me of a less sweet Old Stock, big raisin and dusty aged caramel. Bourbon is a bit peppery and has vanilla oak notes. Slight dusty dark cocoa feel.
MF- Super thick bodied with a semi-creamy but mostly oily feel. Carbonation at a moderate low level but suits what is happening. Finishes with some sweetness and a soothing warmth on the palate.
Right up my alley. Super intense Old Ale flavors and huge but ABV well hidden. The bourbon barrel is strong but the base has a ton complex flavors of its own.
