2010 Bottle

Pours a light orange/amber with a small amount of white head.

Smells of sweet, caramel malt and fruity hop. It has a nice bready smell.

Tastes of sweet malt, alcohol, and balanced up front bitterness. The taste is sweet, toasted malt with some lingering hop character. It's quite nice actually...really balanced.

It has a medium body with a sticky sweet character that is great for the style.

I actually like this quite a bit. The malt-forward profile, balance, and booze character is what I want when I think of a barleywine. This years was better than previous that I've had. Recommended.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

2009 vintage.

Poured cold to a heady topper stemless a deep, dark, murky copper, with a super thin, quickly dissipating tan head that leaves a thin rim on the surface of the beer.

Aroma of dark, buttery sugars and dark cherries.

Big bodied, little carbonation, smooth-ish, medium heat, sweet.

Dark sugars, sticky sweet, muted flavors. This one may be past it's sweet spot.
