3.74/5 rDev -9.2%
12 ounce bottled dated 9/19/2013, poured into a snifter on 7/31/2014.
Appearance: Dark, iced coffee with a tan, thin head and very slight lacing. Just what I expected from a barleywine.
Nose: caramel, barley, raisins, slight leather over notes of orange, apricot and clay
Taste: sweet, resting on the middle of the tongue and leaving a slightly bitter and sour (in a good way) trail to a dry finish with plenty of warmth from the alcohol (10.2 ABV).
Mouthfeel: Creamy and thick. Viscous is a word that comes to mind. It's a cool July evening, but I definitely see this working magic in the cold months because of the warmth and long finish.
I liked it a lot, but didn't love it. We'll put a few in the long-term drawer and see how it ages.
