4.33/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle (no date visible, but I know I bought this in spring of '09...so about a year old). Poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a slightly yeasty dark brown color with very little light getting through it. A 1/2 finger of tan foam sits briefly on top before falling to a low collar with sparse islands of bubbles on the surface.

S - Very sweet smelling barleywine, tons of caramel and sugar up front with layers of bread, yeast and molasses. Hop presence is not noticeable in the aroma.

T - Lots of nice malty flavors in here. Caramel and molasses are strong up front with sugary sweetness mixed in. Hops make much more of an impression in the flavor profile. Good amount of bitterness that perfectly offsets the malt giving a great balance without any cloying qualities from the large malt presence. Definitely has lost some of its hop bite over the year of aging, but it has become a much more balanced barleywine in the process.

M - Feels pretty thick and sugary in the mouth. An almost syrupy sensation as it coats the mouth in sweetness and then is layered on top with bitter hops. Carbonation is on the low side, but not extremely low...still gives a nice tingle but not overly done...works really well with this barleywine.

D - Had several of these last year when they first came out and was really impressed. The hops were so nice when it was fresh - definitely just an amped up Nugget Nectar (how can you go wrong with that???). After a year, the hops have mellowed quite a bit and has arguably made this a better barleywine. Fresh it was closer to an imperial IPA, now - definitely a barleywine...and a good one! Drinking really well right now...maybe another 6 months or so will tame the hops a bit more and make this absolutely perfectly balanced. Great beer fresh or aged, but at this point in time, aged is your only option (unless they make it again).
