After trying one of these at the brewery, I obtained six of these at the 2005 release and placed them in my cellar.
When tasted at the release, the hops were huge, sharp and raw.
I took this one to our homebrew club (because my newest brew is not yet bottled) and Six weeks later this barleywine is smooth.
I served it at my cellar temp 68 deg. F I did NOT want it COLD for tasting.
Pour is Medium amber brown and clear with thin white head.
Big hop aroma
Smooth warming taste, sweet, hoppy with a malt flavor that indicated the big grain bill that was used with this beer.
Mouthfeel is full, warm viscous.
Drinkability, nice. In a room full of vultures, it was hard to get more than a taste of a couple ounces. Limited release and relatively high price make this a self regulating beer. You just can't get enough to drink it every day.
