4.6/5 rDev +11.1%
Bottle purchased and drank at Chocolate and Vines in Rochester, NY. Not sure the year, but due to the taste, it appears to have been cellared very well.
Pours a dark amber/brown, with a one inch head, and no lacing.
Smells include caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, leather, and tobacco.
The taste is similar and just wonderful. The hops have completed faded away and left some sweet and decadent flavors. Only slightly boozy, with rich malt flavors. I taste chocolate, some smoke, brown sugar, candied fruits, toffee, leather, tobacco. Very complex.
The alcohol at this age (wish I knew just how old) is barely noticeable. Sweet sticky mouthfeel, no carbonation. Very drinkable, was able to polish off a bomber with no problem.
This is one of the best barleywines I've ever had, it's just about perfect.

Bottle courtesy of @Casey3236. Pours a mostly opaque deep nutty brown, with hints of rich woody red. Creamy tan head that held pretty well before fading into a medium collar and a few wisps. Sticky legs and good lacing. Aroma is molasses, deep earthy malt, woody, some leathery damp soil. Taste is dark caramel, nutti-chocolate with some almond like toastiness, leather and earth. Rich mouthfeel, full bodied and low to medium carbonation. I think I aged this one a bit too long, or maybe not long enough. That dirt-like flavor is a little off putting.
