2013 on tap at Backcountry Pizza in Boulder, CO.

A- Looks like a more watered down caramel. Very little head on the pour with good retention. Thin lacing.

S- Caramel, thick malt backbone. Caramel is huge in the nose. Some belgian dark fruit action going on too.

T- Very nice malt backbone with huge caramel as well. somewhat charred dark fruit.

M- Very smooth, and on tap prob gives more carb than usual.

O- Up there with King Henry and BCBBW for me. I have not had a lot of barleywines though..
