Short, fat 12 oz bottle copped singly from Super Saver in Somerville for $3.99...
Heard a lot of good things about this beer, so I decided to give it a go when I had the opportunity to purchase it singly...
Amazing appearance with a full, five-fingered foamy and frothy head that kept on rising and refused to dissipate, with a mahogany-brown appearance bordering on ruby-red...
Excellent aroma replete with fresh caramel, dark brown Belgian candied sugars, and rich toffee...
Taste paid homage to the aroma with strong caramel, toffee, and fruity malts slightly balances with a touch of citrus hops... Excellent crisp, clear, and refreshing taste full of flavor and character adding quality into the mix without being overbearing or cloying with the rich and intricate flavors, dominated by sweet malts, toffee, caramel, dark sugars, figs, prunes, plums, and dehydrated fruits...
Certainly one of Anchor's best beers that I've ever sampled...
An overall excellent depiction of the style, one of America's best Barleywines, for sure...
Teriffic rich, thick, and creamy mouthfeel without the slightest hint of the hefty ABV...
Good drinkability, as well...
Anchor did exceptionally well with this one...

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.
Review from notes: February 7th, 2014.
A: Amber with off-white head which quickly disappears.
S: Citrus; lemon with slight hop aroma.
T: Somewhat bitter and boozy. It gets better as I drink.
M: Interesting. Slick and thick.
O: This is my first taste of this style. It's pretty interesting. The only negative with this brew is that it is expensive around here, around $3 a bottle.
