Bottle from 2011

A: poured into a snifter to a clear gold with a small light tan head that fades quickly to a small collar
S: smells of well faded citrusy hops and orange marmalade with some caramel sweetness and a little alcohol
T: taste is bready malt, some stone fruits, caramel sweetness, faint citrus and pine oil hoppiness. swallow is more faded oily piney hop with lingering caramel sweetness. slight alcohol is noticeable as well
M: fairly full in the mouth with soft carbonation that is just right. finish is pretty drying.
O: I probably should have drank one of these a few years ago when they first came to me, but this beer is drinking really well. Flavors are good and it's aged gracefully. Hops are much more apparent on the nose than on the palate and it aged gracefully.

2014 vintage

A - Pours an amber/orange in color body with a thin eggshell head.

S - Caramel, honey, sweet malts, citrus and a buttery essence.

T - Citrus forward at first with sweet malts, caramel and a slight hoppy ending.

M - Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Smooth body.

O - Tasty, different, and citrus forward. Can't say I've had a barleywine like this. It's good, but not something I'd reach for often.
