4.2/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle obtained as an extra in a trade in early 2010. This bottle is likely almost 3 years old, and has been cellared at 50 degrees F. Poured into a Delirium Tremens snifter.

Pours a cloudy russet hue. This bottle has been large undisturbed for the past two years but doesn't look like it- there is nothing clear about it. Pours with a thin head that quickly dissipates.

The nose is appealing, with hints of ripe apples, apple brandy, sweet figs, treacle, burnt toffee, and caramelized malt. Smells very much like a classic aged English barleywine. Interestingly, the hops used to push with IBUs over 100 when this was fresh are not English at all. Time does interesting (and in this case wonderful) things to beer.

The flavor is quite outstanding. The dark dried fruit elements come out in force, with juicy raisin and fig cookie-filling making a dent. Dark syrupy bread and brandy-macerated grapes come to mind. The original hops in their fresh form are 90% gone, but still deliver some noticeable bitterness. Chocolate is also in there somewhere, but it isn't prominent, and manifests itself like "chocolate chips in bread" as opposed to an actual pure chocolate flavor.

The mouthfeel is thick, rich, sweet, and hasn't lost a bit of staying power over the years. This one could go years longer and still have body left.

Conclusion: I intended to wait till sometime next year to open this bottle (received in a trade in early 2010). This is the first time I have tried this beer, and seeing as it never makes it out to CO, it may be the last. Well worth the wait, and I am glad I didn't drink it fresh.
