Got this as a part of a blind trade. Just swapping area beers without asking for anything in particular. I had pretty low expectations for this when I realized it was brewed in 2008 and now 6 years old. The style seems interesting but potentially past it's prime. Man was I wrong. This Barleywine has lost 99 percent of its potent hop aroma and flavor but it has mellowed out into one of the most unique Barleywines I've ever had. The mouthfeel is super creamy and thick but there is the undeniable sweet/sharp malt character found in a good Barleywine. This beer is incredibly drinkable at 10% and is really an enjoyable experience. Something I don't expect to experience in a again in a beer.

Vintage bottle received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a mostly clear deep golden bordering on amber with about one fingers worth of head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is mostly orange and cherries with bits of bread, grains, and brown sugar thrown in there. Hints of earthy hop aroma are still hanging on as is a touch of alcohol. There's a definite oxidized character setting in, but at this point its more sherry like than anything bad. The flavor is sweet with light and dark sugars, orange marmalade, light pitted fruits, and a hint of earthy hop flavor. Little to no hop bitterness is left. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. I had this once before thanks to Mr Barleywine, I wish I had taken some notes then to compare to now. Drinks like an aged barleywine, but a bit on the sweet side. I fear that any more age will obliterate any hops that are left to balance this beer.
