Christmas tasting, lineup of all variants. Base beer comes off as very similar to the Woodford, a bit more fruity perhaps. Plums, raisins. Sweet and boozy.

Batch 2
Dark brown with reddish highlights, almost no head.
Huge nose of booze, candi sugar, dark dried fruits (plums, dates, raisins).
Medium sweetness, barley sugar, malty, dried fruits.
Way too heavy for me to handle it at the head of a tasting, couldn't finish my glass, too maderized.

Batch 2 bottle. Poured from a 750mL bottle into an Anchorage Teku glass. Thanks Ray for sharing.

Pours a dark brown body with an off white two finger head that reduces rather quickly to leave a ring of retention.

Aromas are sweet and malty, molasses, cognac and toffee dominate. On the tongue its roasty and sweet, butterscotch candy and molasses, bourbon soaked vanilla beans, french vanilla, more vanilla than other barleywines I've tasted which is a nice touch. Aftertaste is toasted malt and sticky dark fruits. Mouthfeel is rich, heavy, low carbonation.

This is drinking lovely right now.

2014 bottle poured in a stemmed bulb. Pours brownish red in color. Minimal head that fades quick. Aromas of dates, raisins, plums and booze. Taste is exactly as the aroma. Sweet dark fruits that hit the tongue on the front. Some booze burn. Finish doesn’t linger. Feel is medium bodied for the style. Overall, this is an amazing beer. I’m starting to enjoy barleywines more and this one is near the top of my list.
