Very smooth barleywine. 16 oz pours can get you in trouble.

From the cellar, bottled 01/31/08. Ages really well. Lacking some carbonation but great smell, outstanding flavor and mouthfeel. Worthy of cellar space.

Not a huge fan of the style. I believe barley wine ages ok.. Bottle is from nov iv 13 so hopefully so. Nice to try something different but not really my thing.

A: Ruby with a light haze, medium carbonation and thin foamy head (3/3)
S: Honey and alcohol dominate with a little bit of raisin (8/12)
T: There’s a lot of alcohol in this beer...some darker malt character and little bitterness, but mostly the alcohol. Somewhat weird aftertaste similar to mealyness of a crappy light lager but not nearly as strong, and may reflect shipping from DC more than actual beer quality. (15/20)
M: Very smooth yet creamy mouthfeel. Pretty dry on finish. (5/5)
O: Not a huge fan of this guy. It’ll get you drunk, and it lets you know that. I was hoping for a richer flavor profile given the ABV, but I mostly just got the A. (6/10)
