2012 vintage #6785. I am surprised this had not been added yet. Am I missing something?

a: Clear, pale golden copper color; pours with a short lived head.

s: Roasted, nutty toffee; kind of sugary. Muted leafy hops. Weak tea and faint alcohol.

t: Still a fair amount of hops thankfully, this is a sugar bomb. Definitely one to drink fresh I say. Very sweet toffee and some faintly fruity tea with leafy bitterness. Lingering sugar.

m: Not as substantial as one would expect from a beer this size. Gently carbonated.

o: An okay sweeter barleywine, not one to revisit.
