Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy dirty brown color ale with no carbonation. Aroma of oxidized sweet caramelized malt is very nice. Taste is a nice mix of caramelized malt with some residual sugar, oxidation with a light watery finish. Body is full with no carbonation. Very nice level of complexity and oxidation is actually quite well balanced in the mix. The only thing that bothered me is the watery thin finish.

Poured flat...no head. Very sweet. Complex flavors after a year in my cellar (2011 year on bottle bought in 2014) Not an average beer. Wants to be sipped slowly and savored.

Corked and waxed bottle. +$35 for 16.09 ounces.

It's a murky dark brown with no foam, no lacing.

It has a lovely Port smell that I noticed as soon as I removed the cork. A bit of a wine aroma peeks out.

The taste has the Port at the front as well though more of that wine aspect does shine..

The mouthfeel is as good as it can get without there being any carbonation.

Some would call this a non carbonated, oxidized mess but I have had them there flavours and mouthfeels before. Anniversary, Jubilees, Thomas Hardys. .and I am a FAN!

2006 Vintage. Pours a nice amber color, and is almost still. Really interesting appearance, especially after a swirl. Alcohol legs are noticeable, but there are also what look like little sugar crystals lining the glass. The nose is incredible, and like the taste, only continues to get better as it sits. Definitely give this one time to warm/open up. Lots of caramel and raisin in the nose. Also butterscotch. Perhaps a hint of that old cognac-like smell you'd notice when drinking Utopias. The beer tastes damn phenomenal. Super sweet, but not cloying. Caramel, dark fruit, some tobacco, cognac, etc. Really impressive stuff here. Actually opened a Muscat dessert wine beside this and the similarities were astounding. So, as you can imagine, there was quite a bit of complexity in this one. The mouth feel is a bit lighter than Utopias, and definitely not what I would call "syrupy." Overall, this is world class. Glad to have had the opportunity to try it!

Wow!!! Poured from bottle into teku glass @ Open, Rome.

Nice dark brown,like a still tripel. About 100cl pour never looked this good.

Great smell as it warms, brwn sugar, maple.

Lots of alcohol present in taste but doesnt dominate. I still taste faint roasted maple-pumpkin with brown sugar on top, very smooth, the alcohol doesnt burn on way down.

Damn this is a barleywine, would of never guessed it was aged in red wine barrels.
Wish we had this @ Barleywine fest in February.

Pours a dark copper/chestnut brown color with mahogany edges when held to a light source.  No head or lace to speak of but has lasting legs.

Almost all booze in the nose st first. Takes a while for it to open up with some chestnut, caramel, almond, toffee and vinous fruit.  Only the faintest of barrel presence with little to no oak.  It's all in the red wine and vinous fruit with hints of grape, fig, date and dark cherries.  Has to sit for a while before opening up but once it does, it smells pretty nice.

Medium bodied with lots of sweetness from the booze, malt and dark fruit.  As it warms it becomes more complex and the barrel character starts to show.  Nice toasted oak and vinous red wine flavor.  Nice malt backbone with hints of caramel, toffee and nut followed by fig, date, raisin and plum.  Some nice heat which is expected for the style but the high abv is relatively well balanced.  Definitely a sipper though.
