2011

Real thick malts on the nose of this one. Figs are in there as well, but as an accent. Flavor is nice. Smooth and fairly sweet with a bit of a boozy thing to it. Maple seems evident on here as well. Smooth, certainly. But as it's a 2011, it could probably use some age to harness some complexity. As it stands now though, it's quite good. Few barleywines are able to get to this point so fresh. And that is worth noting. After several beers before this, and drinking them "too fast," I wanted a sipper. This is that. Something to relax with, savor, and enjoy. A notable beer.
