3.76/5  rDev -6.7%

poured 12oz bottle into chalice. Bottled back in Feb 2009.

A - Dark brown coffee color with a thin 1 finger sandy head. . Decent head retention and some lacing.

S - Malts, caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and earthy hops. I also notice the booze..

T - Still boozy, with dark fruits even citrus, caramel, toffee, with some burnt sugar and even cola.

M - Medium bodied and still decent carbonation given the age.

O - A good BW, but not quite top tier.

Nice lacing and they nailed the color. Dark fruits, caramel, booze, candy sugar, oxidation on the nose. Taste follows the nose plums raisins alcohol complementary oxidation to an aged barley wine. Medium carbonation and works with the style. I love aged barlywine's and this is a good one but the heat from the alcohol keeps this from getting a very good rating. Would drink again if I had another one.
