Another gift from a new friend!! I just got this however it says 2009 reserve. I don't know how long this aged or when it was bottled.

This poured into my Hennepin glass. Really really rich head. Off white and long lasting. Body of the beer is very brown orange and a little cloudy. Just overall a beautiful beer.

Nose is orange or apricot and malt. Very fresh smelling.

Taste is sweet with some IPA bitterness but lots of dried fruit, mostly apricot, malts and some bitterness in the finish again. This beer is well balanced. It is smooth yet strong flavored. It is obvious this has been aged prior to bottling. Very well done, with patience.

Sweetness and a little alcohol warmth finish this brew off. Remarkably drinkable. This is in the top three barleywines I have had. Very strong contender.
