4.47/5 rDev +10.4%
Golden amber color, small head. Aroma is malty and fruity with a touch of oak. This is the first barleywine that I've had that was served in a wineglass! Not complaining because it worked. A big and bold aged in oak barley wine. Malts are bold, slightly sweet and very smooth. Hops are slightly spicy. Well balanced. Smooth taste with a slightly oiliness. Reminiscent of a nice sherry. Touch of oak, cask aged 3 years. Incredibly complex flavors. Nice barleywine, worth seeking out. The food at this place is also amazing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a noticeable alcohol bite.

On tap at Toronado Bwine Fest:
Poured a nice amber color with a small white head(so to speak). Smelled fruit and very malty. Nice hopsto it.I saw a previous rating that mentioned oak but mine didnt maybe they did not age in oak on this batch. This batch was reported to 8.8 ABV which was a little weak for me but it kept drinkability good and the taste was killer so I didnt mind.Its not about ABV its about taste! Malts are bold, slightly sweet and very smooth.

Sampled during the 2004 Strong Ale Month at the Thirsty Bear resturant.
This is a review of the 2003 vintage in a tulip glass.
Aroma is sweet and slightly corn malt aroma with a low spicy hop aroma. Alcohol enhances a licorice spice in the end aroma.
Flavor is shaply bitter on first sip. A growing malt fights with a tannic and acidic character before a long hop and alcohol burn that first clears the senses and then nullifies them.
