2016 can to a teku.

L - fairly translucent mahaogony wit big bubbly head. Looks very thin. Lacing is watery.

S - familiar but I can't place what it's reminding me of. Maybe dfh raisen d'etre? Dark fruit, but not terribly sweey. Chalky faint oxidation. Vanilla and oak. Plums are predominant.

T - better than I expected. It drinks more like a quad - think a mildly barrel aged Sr bernadus 12 or westy 12. It's sweet but not overly so. Not terribly complex. Finishes with a very mild earthiness. Bourbon is faint. This is aged a year but it drinks like a barleywine that's sat 3 or 4, which is okay with me because I hate drinking sugar bombs in this style.

F - thin but yet creamy. Its filling in your mouth but dissipates from the palate shortly thereafter. Love the mouth feel, but lacking on the finish.

O - pretty good. Actually one of the better barleywines I've had. I'll have no problem buy g this again in the future.

There is something wrong with people that this is rated lower than the base barleywine. The barrel aging highlights and showcases the best characteristics of the base beer. Fantastic

This beer has set in my cellar since it was released in 2015. I am here to tell this is an exceptional beer with age on it.
Complex sweet mouth feel with tons of great barrel taste.
