look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
2013 vintage served to me with a deep ruby body and a ring of bubbly off-white/khaki head.
The nose is full of rich caramel, toffee, vanilla, wood, and bourbon.
This tastes exquisite. Caramel ,toffee, vanilla, coconut, bourbon/alcohol peeks through a bit as well as a touch of chocolate and cherry fruitiness. Damn.
Subtle bubbly carbonation with a nice smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
Easily the best barleywine I have had.
Serving type: on-tap

Nice color with a slight lacing.
Smell is oak and alcohol might be the weakest link here.
Taste oak is there, blending in very nicely with the high abv. Vanilla with light fruity taste.
Overall : English Barleywine where ya been all my life?
My first English Barleywine won't be my last. What difference does it matter what I say it is a limited production run so if you get your hands on a bottle do yourself a favor.
Overall a great beer I would put this on par with some of the finest Scotch Whiskys.
Very complex there is a whole lot going on in this bottle.
