Thanks to Shroud0fDoom for this one from his NBS BIF #1 box. Bottle #782/1000. Shared with OKComputer. All-around, a fairly typical example of the style. Nice color, scent and flavors. The body was nicely smooth, and finished with just a touch of stickiness. I'd like to see what a couple years would do for this beer, I bet it would be fantastic.

Not sure if this is retired. This is the 2nd anniversary ale from Union Craft. Blue Label and bottle 666. Hazy copper color. nice foamy head. Lingering lace on the glass. Toffee and caramel aroma. Spicy pine like notes. Big blast of caramel malt and hops. Very nice pine and grapefruit bitterness. Well balanced. Lingering toffee like stickiness. Nice full mouthfeel but not overly so that it is way filling. Very nice US barleywine from a great MD brewery.
