Just opened a 4 year old bottle. Smooth, malty, very little evidence of hops

Saved a case and stored it in the cellar. Bottled on September 08, 2009. I figured this was a good time to open it 8 years and 4 months later. I'm not a veteran of the barleywine's but I did have a couple of these fresh before I stored them. Smell is of dark fruit, plum, cherry, wood. Taste is smooth with a very creamy head. Up front I get the warmth of the ABV, plum, dark fruit, malt, little vanilla and wood. Pretty good aged barleywine I'd have to say. Taste has changed a bit. Now I need to start opening the cellared Quads and Russian Imperial Stouts.

Born on date Sept 08 2009. Poured into a snifter at 50 degrees. A dark brown beer with red hues. The body of beer is near opaque. A one finger light tan head with good retention. The beer is a bit darker than it should be for this style.

N: Sweet caramel, with earthy, bready, fruity, citrus (grapefruit and lemons), and some floral.

T: Sweet caramel, toffee, bread, earth dark fruits, lemons, floral, and some resin.

M: The body of the beer is medium, kinda chewy, and low carbonation.

The bottle conditioning of the beer killed the body, it is not thick and chewy like some of the great aged barleywines I have tried. The hops to me is just mild, it is more of a malt bomb with hints of hops. This is just a decent barleywine, it has potential.

2010 12 oz. bottle poured into an extended tulip style glass. Looks good nice tangerine/orange color with a slightly hazy look to it. Nice slightest of slight off white colored head with medium to small bubbles with excellent lacing and glass retention.

Smell is good. Big in both ways bot the malt and hop area. Plenty of caramel malts that are nice and roasted. There's also some nice pine aromas and some tangerine peel, pretty good all around.

Not really a ton to say about the flavor profile but there's a lot of flavor. A lot of up front sweetness. Plenty of caramel and not quite as much toffee tones. Then there's a TON of pine resin flavored hops that are very strong, it's pretty nice though and then theres some nice citrus peel flavors, grapefutie, clementine, tangerine, and some orange. Nice all around.

Appropriate full bodied flavor, lingers a little bit. Really nice carbonation level with a nice gritty dry bitter finish. Good carbonation level even with three years on it, but I guess this is a style that ages well. Really good sipper, but goes down pretty quick, really drinkable. This was one of the first beers I really liked when I got into craft beer though glad I still like it.

Bottle pour at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottled 9/8/09.

Pours a clear dark honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, citrus zest, and slight cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is showing a slight amount of oxidation but the hops are still present in this one.
