I'm going to say up front that this is my favorite Barleywine. I have had this before and each bottle is better with some added age.
Looks great in a glass. Deep dark red with a small creamy head that actually sits for longer than expected.
Smells sweet and rich. Dark fruits and hops.
Tastes great. Very sweet, so this is a sipper. Really let this one warm up a bit to get the most out of it. A really good hop bite up front, and sweet candy and fruits linger a little after each sip. Almost reminds me of a DIPA/Barleywine because it's so hopppy.
Mouthfeel is perfection. Coats the mouth, not much carbonation at all, which is right for the style.
Despite the ABV, the drinkability is high (for a barleywine). It's a sipper, after dinner beer. I plan on stocking up on any and all bottles I see from this spring release and hope to do a review with some significant age.
