Wow, when I realized this was 6 years old I was apprehensive of its aging, but very smooth. Sweet Honey, not too spicy, high alcohol. Nice surprise, I grabbed it off the shelf at the beer store without looking at the label to see the year.

Eyes - depending on the lighting, this brew pours a semi-opaque tan with no head (careful pour that still yielded some yeast sediment).

Nose - very much a barleywine smell. Super sweet, a bit of wheat.

Taste/body - Getting some sweetness of honey on the tip of my tongue. This beer is becoming so much better as it warms. I'm picking up brown sugar notes now. The ABV is hidden well, which is not a surprise this far out from bottling. Coats the tongue heavily and has light carbonation.

Overall, this beer has held up well for five years of God knows what conditions it saw before I bought it. I hate to be this way, but I can't rate it too high since the last 5 year old bottle of barleywine I had was 2009 Old Stock Cellar Reserve: a revelation of a beer that sets the tone for high ABV, aged beers for me. Still, great job by Weyerbacher.
