2014 vintage, thanks T! From a 22 oz bottle, pours an almost impenetrable deep amber. Small mocha-colored head looks very appetizing. Smell and taste are packed with toffee and plums, with just the right touch of barrel. Sips like a fine port. Delicious, the best barleywine I've ever had.

This was just great, had everything one could hope for in a barleywine. Probably the best one I have had in a while. Put my name in for a case in November. We'll see !
