Bottled 09/07/11. Wow, great beer. Unbelievable layers of flavor. Pours dark with red tones. Fig juice, pomegranate and barrel all meld together beautifully. So smooth. Wish I had another.

On tap at MacGregor's Grill and Tap Room in Henrietta, NY.

'11 vintage.

Pours a dark brown, looks like a stout, almost. Half inch khaki colored head, with a little bit of lacing.

Smells like plums, maple syrup, roasted malt, and a little bit of chocolate.

Big maple syrup like flavor in the taste, it's excellent. Some dark fruit (plums and raisins), plus some vanilla, caramel, and some slight spicy rye whiskey flavors.

Medium to thick body, very full. Low to zero carbonation. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, gets sticky as time goes on.

This was a nice revelation, awesome that one of my local bars got a vintage keg of this.

32oz fill from Green's Piney Grove, poured into a Stone Old Guardian glass.

A: Pours a deep brown body intermingled with ruby hues, whilst forming a half-inch of beige head that quickly recedes to a ring and spotty cap. The look is deep inviting.

S: Plenty of good aroma on this one. There's lots and lots of vanilla, folded in with bourbon, dark, earthy fruits, and a bit of alcohol. The nose is deep and inviting.

T: Even more vanilla than the nose lets on, along with bourbon, dark, earthy fruits, and bit of alcohol peeking through. The barrel has been good to this beer. The vanilla is soft and creamy, as is the bourbon, while the dark fruits slowly move along the tongue and linger in the finish. One of the best dark fruit flavors I've gotten from any beer, regardless of style. The taste is deep and inviting.

M: Full, creamy, just the slightest bit syrupy--deep and inviting.

O: Deep and inviting, of course. This is a fantastic barrel-aged barleywine; there's clearly a solid base beer here, but the rye whiskey barrels 'take it to the next level' without steamrolling the barleywine beneath. Get it if you can find it.
