I've. Really been looking forward to having this on tap, finally got my chance with a 2010 version
Light amber in color, 2 finger head, decent retention
Sweet malty character in the aroma and some cherry notes, hops are present but in the aroma at least are subdued.
It's hot and hoppy with some malt on the finish, had one of these that was a few years old and this a far cry from that. Needs some age
Light in body, and smooth, the alcohol inhibits the drinkability and knowing what it could be hurts it as well. With 1- 2 of age it starts to drink fabulously, new however I'll pass
Serving type: on-tap

4.14/5 rDev +5.3%

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.

3.59/5 rDev -8.7%

A - Poors an amber/orange color with a eggshell colored head. Head dissipated quickly but left a ring clinging around the glass.
S - Dark Fruit with hints of citrus. Also getting some honey
T - Similar with the nose. Taste like figs and orange followed by hops. I imagine this might have been a hop bomb when it was fresh as there is still a punch from the hops with 3 years of age.
M - Medium body with nice carbonation.
O - Decent american barley wine. Not bad.
