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.

Bottled December 2013

A - Pours a dark, murky brown with a tan head. It's not pretty, but it definitely works.

S - Sweet, toffee, caramel malts and dark fruits.

T - Sweet taste that follows the nose to a T. Not overly hoppy.

M - Medium bodied and carbonation.

O - To me, the beer is a bit overly sweet. Not something I'd normally go after.
