Poured from a 22oz bomber into a mini La Chouffe tasting glass.
A: Semi hard pour creates a very tall tan head which seems to last forever. Body is a golden amber color which looks lightly carbonated.
S: Suprisingly not a big aroma from this one. Though when smelt closely I pick up caramelly big hops.
T: The taste is much bigger than the smell, which makes me happy. Hops and malty, slight alcoholic afterburn. Little bit of spice lingers.
M: Quite nice, the carbonation is just right for this style.
D: Barely wines are typically sippers so I can't mark it down for that... I don't think it'll be a problem finishing this bottle though, but that'd be it for me.

2011 keg. 32oz growler fill from Green's PG, poured into a Conquest snifter.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, rich auburn body, with a half-inch of beige head. The head dissipates to just a ring, but laces through the life of the beer.
S: Caramel, and a lot of pine. Way more pine than I would have expected for a 3-4 year old beer.
T: The hops are not as bitter as might be expected from a fresh American barleywine, but they still take center stage here. Lots of pine, then caramel, followed by a little dark fruit mingling with pine again in the finish.
M: Big, lush, without being syrupy.
O: This is a really good, still hoppy barleywine after all these years. It reminds me of how Old Ruffian ages--very well.
Serving type: growler
