02/22/09- Received as a gift from...yes...Lou91. Back in 2005.

Presentation- 12oz bottled in late 1999 to celebrate the millenium. Poured into a Duvel glass.

Appearance- Lightly murky caramel colored pour. Vigorous pour yields a 1/2 inch dirty white head..fades quickly and leaves some minimal spotty lace.

Smell- The nose has mostly left this beer, but still has a nose of lightly sweet caramel malt.

Taste- Taste has held up pretty good considering. Caramely taste is the main flavor...you can tell it's a fading headed south caramel though. Hops suprisingly are somewhat here with a light bitter taste. Maybe a touch of vanilla as well.

Mouthfeel- Really smooth, lighty watery with very low carbonation.

Drinkability- Considering it's almost 10 years old, I would say this was pretty good. Flavor was still good as well as the overall feel of the beer. Glad I got to share this one rather than waiting another who knows how many years to drink this.

Damn lou91, WTF did you get this? Many thanks. Pours with very little head, body is ruby-brown with lots of sediment. Nose is vinuous, with a hint of chocolate malt, just a touch of butter. No hops.

Tastes damn good to me, sherry, and buttery chocolate raisin bread. Mouthfeel is thin compared some other barleywines, drinkability is helped by the fact that I cannot taste the alcohol in this beer.

Poured dark brown with a head of tight small bubbles – almost picture perfect with some sediment. Great nose - a subtle mix of sugar, malt and cocoa. This beer aged well with all the rich malt, hop bitterness, and chocolate undertones all in a very drinkable ale. There is almost no alcohol warmth and too drinkable if there is such a thing. Yum.
