You know it's funny. Back when I was a wee lass in this world o' beer, barleywine was one of my least favorite styles (as was lambic! Shocking I know.) Now I love them. And lambics too of course.
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose is leafy earthy. Not much to it though really. Flavor is a bit too bright, IMO. It's still nice though. Robust, earthy, slight citrus. Not a lot of complexity here it seems. Perhaps it needs some age on it? Feel is smooth on liquid and low on carbonation, which is expected. Overall a nice drinker. Like I said though, no real heap of complexity.
Oh yeah. Can we start putting vintage dates on barleywines please? For the love of Pete.

Had on-tap at Thirsty Monk Asheville. Served in a Lagunitas pint glass.
A- Pours a reddish dark amber with a 1/2 inch light tan had that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Sweet smelling with some notes of dark fruit, caramel and a touch of brown sugar.
T- Big hits of Bready malt, booze and more dark fruit. Everything melds together to make for a drinkable barleywine, there's just not a lot of complexity. Bitter aftertaste.
M- Somewhat syrupy with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- Definitely a sweeter barleywine with a lot of residual sugars but still quite drinkable if not very complex.
