A - Poured into my Tripel Karmeliet tulip a deep clear chestnut brown with a shortlived tan head that recedes leaving a small ring of lacing around the glass.
S - Caramel and sweet malty notes. Citrus and over-ripened fruits. A slight usk in the background. Alcohol is definitely present.
T - Sweet up front with a nice malty caramel flavor. As it moves back, fruity notes are observed: citrus, figs, raisons, with a little earthyness. Hoppy bitterness is very well balanced. Alcohol flavors in the finish.
M - Oily, thick and very tongue coating. So thick I could eat it with a fork.
D - For a barleywine, this is very easy drinking. Too easy drinking. I can feel myself get drunker as I write this review. Not for the lite beer fan. Definitely NOT.

Appears a dark opaque crimson times amber. A thick white cap slowly fades, and scattered bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of cherries, honey, toasted barley, fresh bread, citrus, and pine sap.
Taste is of the aromas with a honey malt sweetness, followed by ripe fruit, bitter hops, and doughy yeast.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, chewy, viscous, and sweet with hot alcohol hanging on in the finish.

Caramel, dates, malt, toast, buckwheat honey, liquid yeast, citrus, and sweet sherry, can be found on this long nose.
Front is rich, creamy, full, robust, with some citrus hops on the sides of my tongue. Plums and chocolate on the long balanced finish.
Overall; My mouth salivates every time i have this brew. Personal pick for best English style barleywine made in the U.S.A.. Balanced with great length. Looking forward to tasting after aging a few years. (vintage 2011)
