2012 bottle#19 of 216, thanks to rudzud.

Light foamy fizzy head, pretty much pitch black, decent but not crazy legs.

Nose is light interesting, weird earthy cheesy like rum thing, big earthy fruity rum, big booze like chewy fudgey caramel, mild paper.

Taste sweet candy syrup, fruity mess, cardboard and fruit syrup, mild dark malt like mess, almost soy sauce and syrup, mild rum.

Mouth lighter thin, decent but light carb.

Shared with JLindros. 2012 vintage, bottle 19/216.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a super dark brown nearly black with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps and halo.

S - Aromas of light rum, caramel, older hops, lighter sweet malts, light dark fruits and raisins.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, lots of sweetness, light rum, good dark fruits, little barrel notes, faint caramel sweetness, fruit syrup. Odd almost cardboard notes.

M - Mouthfeel is thin, lightly carbonated.

O - Overall this beer was really mediocre. Unpleasant beer with a fair amount of off flavours. Ehhh

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to AndresR for sharing this one.

Bottle # 42/216. Batch '12.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. No lace on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, sugar, rum, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with plum and prune flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty plum and prune quality in the flavor.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter. This was opened at a BA Barleywine tasting.

Pours a cloudy reddish dark brown with not much head to speak of. The smell is sweet with some caramel and dark fruit. I'm definitely getting the rum. The taste is sweet with a mild rum note. The sweetness isn't cloying at all. There is a nice candy sugar/caramel note that goes well with the rum. This is a solid barleywine.
