Poured to a large red wine glass.
Pours a deep amber red with a thin light tan head.
Nice sweet malty aromas, some booze and a little woody fusel oil.
Nice sweet malty flavor. Booze flavors of bourbon and rum, a little oakieness and a bit of dark fruit.
Nice silky sticky mouthfeel. Medium light body same with the carbonation, pretty nice.
Great beer overall and a very nice readily available barel aged barleywine.

2006 vintage on draft at Capones in Norristown, PA on Black Friday 2011.

Pours a cloudy dark amber color that's opaque with a one finger off white head that slowly settles into a thin ring.  Spotty lacing left behind.

Sweet boozy aroma with lots of caramel malt and dark fruit notes. Hints of caramel, toffee, date and fig.

Crsip medium body with soft carbonation that gives way to booozy malt sweetness and dark fruit notes. Nice heat up front that gives way to some zesty spice and sweeter notes. Hints of fig, date and raisin along with caramel and toffee. Has smoothed out but still boozy with a decent amount of heat.
