Thanks goes out to MastaaaGrillaaa for this brew, from NBS BIF#6

12.7 oz. Bottle
2014 Vintage

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice dark brown color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger tan head, which leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is very nice malty, with some nice sweetness, nice touch of dark fruits (raisins, figs, plums, cherries, dates). The taste is pretty nice, malty, nice sweetness, with a nice dark fruit comples (raisins, plums, figs, cherries, dates). Full Body, ABV hidden pretty well, a nice complex brew. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Bottle, purchased at brewery 3 months ago:
Pours dark, almost deep brown, but with a deep rusty red aspect to it. Head is nice, rust-tinged beige. Thick collar and interesting swirl design are nice, though there's only a few specks of lace.

Nose is a classic American barleywine nose, with toffee malt and a pine barrel balancing note. A light orange rind accent presents on a swirl.

Taste opens with a thin but light caramel note more than toffee. The orange note combined to bring a sort of bing cherry note. A little aspect of alcohol presents on the thin but soft liquid before the light spruce and wooden bitterness begins. The bitterness isn't strong in the end, and as it takes hold, there's a light hint of a cacao nib or two inthe transition.

A nice beer, to me at this point midway between English and American style, leaning slightly towards the latter.

An excellent English barleywine, redolent with sweet caramel and strong malts, but still with enough hop character to provide a counterpoint. Great fresh, and with more flavors emerging as it warms.

T - Flavor is a bit of raisin, caramel, some alcohol a a surprisingly sweet finish.
M - Low carbonation, medium mouth feel.
O - This is a very tasty barleywine.
