Poured from 750 ml bottle into Old Guardian glass. No visible bottle date.

A: Pours a deep chestnut brown with slight tan head that settled immediately to a thin ring around the edge. Zero lacing.

S: Caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg.

T: Sweet caramel malts mixed with a subtle spice mix. Some cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. Maybe a touch of clover honey.

M: Fairly thick with an almost syrup quality to it leaving a lingering sweetness of the tongue. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Very lightly carbonated.

O: Enjoyable but missing that little something to make it outstanding.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 12/2013.

Pours a hazy reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, and honey aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, and toffee flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice caramel, toffee, and honey qualities all around.

Poured a dark brown body with lace patches stuck to the glass on top of an aroma that is figs and dark fruit along with touches of bourbon and wood, along with some sweetness. The beer is thick/full but smooth and easy to drink thanks to some oakiness (body is chewy at times), and has a real good sweet edge thanks to vanilla/caramel taste notes and possible dark fruits along with figs. I have a sweet tooth and this beer seemed to hit it often and this was complemented by a slightly hot boozy finish. A very enjoyable barleywine.

Bottled 12/2012. Consumed 16 months later.

Pours mildly translucent. Nice tan head. Very malt-thick nose. Raisin and a mild maple thing is on there also. Seems a bit boozy also, unfortunately. Flavor is pretty decent. Kind of seems a bit too clogged with a mild boozy edge and a whole lot of malty sweetness. A shame really as it exhibits a lot of characteristics you want to see for the style. After 16 months I wouldn't imagine it to be like this though. Maybe it's just not a good barleywine for aging.
