2003 12 oz bottle bought from the fridge at the brewpub in Seattle, a day in my carry-on, a couple of months in my fridge.

Wow. What a strange, hazy, pinkish-orange color. Up top there's a small, off-white, dense head. Thin, filmy lacing. Malt, toffee, sweet creamy chocolate and bread in the nose. Besides that, not much (:-). The front is very sweet: caramel, toffee, candy. A thick, sweet, creamy, malty middle gives up the stage for a sweet, alcoholy finish. There's some nice bitterness in the finish. And licorice aplenty.

I think this is a pretty tasty, sweet American barleywine.
