Making this review more for me moving forward. Perhaps I should have let it age another year (2012 vintage). Smelled delicious, spot on barley wine. Didn't get the belgian aspect at all. Ultimately, thick and sickly sweet. Ok sipper, but too much / too sweet throughout. Had no noticeable barrel-aged characteristics, the sweetness was overpowering. Looked beautiful though.

'12 bottling. Pours with a one finger high, tan colored, and foamy head, while the liquid beneath is slightly murky red-orange color. Lacing and retention are both moderate. Aroma is quite pleasant. Sweet candi sugars, brown sugar, and burnt caramel, Belgian yeast, toffee, butterscotch, dark fruits, raisins, hints of chocolate, while the barrel aromas of coconut, vanilla, whiskey, and oak are light they mingle well in this one. Sticky, coating finish, that highlights toffee, dark fruit, and caramel. Medium heavy, filmy consistency, light carbonation, and a medium full body.

Overall this is quite a nice barrel aged barleywine. Not quite what I was expecting but it definitely made up for that in a different way. Big thanks to tut2528 for this in our most recent trade!

22oz bottle from an unlisted source who I can’t remember. I still owe you thanks. (JMRSN, maybe?)

A: Violet brown. No head. Semi-sticky legs.

N: Coconut and white chocolate. Oak character with caramel. Has a very rounded flavor profile.

T: Bubble gum, caramel, white chocolate, and coconut. The oak barrel is subdued, but it is present. The Belgian yeast lends a very sweet candi sugar profile. This does become cloying after a spell.

M: Medium, likely from the yeast. Not bad. Good job on hiding the alcohol.

O: A worthy beer, but, like Imagine from Block 15, it is very much unbalanced. If you like confections, this is your frog.
