A: Super cloudy mahogany pour. Small tan head. Fades slowly with just a few spots of lacing.
S: Lots of toffee, and raisin with some molasses and a bit of caramel. Pretty boozy even with 3 years on it.
T: Super sweet caramel and toffee up front. Hints of molasses. More caramel and burnt sugar in the middle with the raisins kicking in. Finishes slightly bitter and drying with a little piney and resinous hops I think. Some spicy alcohol lingers between sips.
M: Heavy, thick, syrupy, cloying. Sipper for sure.
O: A nice mellow, sweet, slow drinking barleywine. Very smooth, though that might be the age. A little bit of nice bitterness to balance the sweetness. All good things. Just a little simple, that's what keeps it from garnering higher numbers. I enjoyed it.

From a 12 ounce bottle into a teku. March 2013 edition.
A- Orange and copper colored body. Exceptionally persistent head that remains even after sipping. Lace is sticky, abundant and scattered. Carbonation bubbles stick to the glass plainly visible in the body. Sexy.
S- Citrusy, sweet, honey-like. Thick sweet malt flavor. Caramel and toffee abound. A very pungent and robust flavor.
T- Continues very citrusy. Caramel, toffee and sweet malt too. The nose and taste are very consistent.
M- I love how creamy this drinks. Quite smooth and mellow. The age must have done this well, because there's zero hint of alcohol. No burn whatsoever. It's sweet as I've mentioned, with only a slight bitterness from whatever citrusy hops it started with.
This beer probably isn't getting the props it deserves. It's delicious. I can't speak to this beer flesh, but a year and four months have aged it well.
