2013 vintage poured into a snifter
A: brown with a ruby hint in the light with surprising lots of light brown/off white head and a sticky cloud lace
S: orange peel, currants, booze soaked berry
T: Sweet upfront dark fruit with boozy undertones but not too hot
M: creamy feel and very smooth
Overall one of the best barleywines around

2012 Vintage
Poured into snifter

A: Pours a hazy, borderline opaque brown-amber showing orange when held to light. Very thin, quickly dissipating khaki-tan head.

S: Orange, honey, dark rum, caramel, cereal grain aromas all very noticeable and all powerful. Hints of earth and funky tones too.

T: Rich, sweet caramel malts mix with fortified wine and mead flavors. Very slight earthy bitterness is lingering in the background. Very strong boozy tone as well with almost impish floral hop notes.

M: Chewy, viscous body with little, but still slightly tingling carbonation.

O: Sweet and heady; a year has been kind to this beer. At 11.8% ABV when bottled, this vintage beer is best as a treat to be sipped and savored. Pair this with blue cheese for one fantastic indulgence.
