Vertical Flight 2013 - 2015 at The Avenue Pub Nov. 21. 2013 from bottle, 2014 and 2015 on tap.

Appearance: 2013 is noticeably darker. 2015 has the most head and clings to the side of the glass.

Taste: 2013 is the sweetest of the three. 2015 has a dry hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: full bodied, 2013 has a thick chewy feel to it.

Overall: Really enjoyed the flight for the chance to experience the effect of aging on barleywine. The 2013 was my fave, it had a full, deep flavor that I really liked.
