Ive had this bottle for about a year. Poured at cellar temp into a snifter. the beer pours a clear chestnut hue with some garnet highlights.
Fizzy tightly packed beige head foams up 1 cm and fades slowly to a sturdy surface layer. Dense lattice as the foam recedes.
Aroma is rich malt with caramel and brown sugar and a bit of dark fruit, plums. I also have just a bit of fusol alcohol notes and maybe a back drop of citrusy hops, but this is very faint.
First sip reveals an average body with sticky texture and mild carbonation.
Flavor is dark fruit and caramel, molasses and general sweetness. The finish rolls to a lingering bitterness and dry state with some hits of peppery booze.
A very enjoyable and spot on barleywine. I am glad I have another one cellared for the future!
