2012 Vintage

L - Burgundy red with murky body and half a finger of khaki-colored head. Looks like hazy iced tea.

S - Oak, molasses, dark fruits, caramel malts, coffee

T - Toffee, caramel, toasted coconut, red grapes, vinous notes, subtle bourbon, lost of sticky sweetness

F - Medium body. Easy to drink. Very sweet. Low carbonation.

O - Superb. Sucks that it is no longer made. Combines the best of English & American Barleywines and Old Ales and soaks them in oak.
