look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 22 oz bottle into snifter. 2013 vintage.

A: Pours a deep brown with a hint of burgundy when held to the light. One finger frothy off white head that settled fairly quickly to a small ring around the edges. Some slight lacing.

S: Wonderful aromas coming from this one, Sweet caramel, bourbon, brown sugar, vanilla, stone fruits.

T: Follows the nose fairly closely. Maybe a hint of banana and coconut in the back.

M: I found it a bit thin at first, but it seemed to improve as it warmed. Fairly lightly carbonated but not unexpected given the style and ABV.

O: I can see why this is a highly respected barleywine. One of my new favorites. I just need to get my hands on a 2014 bottle now.
