FINALLY tried this one. After having traded away multiple bottles, and after sitting on two for several months, I decided to give it a go.
Poured from 22oz bottle into Bordeaux wine glass.
A: Light, pineapple hops work well with the carmelized pineapple from the malt. A light hint of booze as well.
A: 1/2 finger of off-white foam forms with each pour. Clear, bronze body. Awesome color!
F: Herbal hops up front quickly yield to delicious malty goodness. Sweet, carmelized sugar, sweet tea, a touch of peach, and a mild bitterness. A quick description: clean, sweet, a mix of caramel and fruit, and enough bitterness to balance.
M: Medium-full, slick, syrupy mouthfeel. Medium-low carbonation.
O: I love barleywines, but American barleywines are sometimes a bit hoppier than I'd like. I'd held onto this one for several months, hoping it might tone the hop bitterness down a bit. Well, whether the time in the bottle helped make this one that much better, or it was really a stellar one to begin with, the beer I tasted was one hell of a barleywine! Get this one if you can!

Blue wax to tulip.
A. Dark copper with amber hues. Cloudy. 2 finger egg shell head that retreats to a fine bubble rim. Nice laces.
S. Moderately fragrant. Big time floral hops w/ a citrus finish. This beast is certainly going to be a hoppy barley wine (big surprise).
T. A little sweet, a lot bitter. Strong hops flavor with a certain presence of barley wine = apples, plums, figs, malts, pears, and persimmons.
M. Very thick. High carbonation. Fairly smooth.
O. Very nice. This is certainly a 3F ale in respect tot the level of hops. Which are very high. This is a great ale to share. Very strong and very well crafted. I certainly recommend this ale.
