Poured from fridge temp. Pours a beautiful opaque dark orange. Almost no carbonation - looks a bit syrupy. Definitely not a bad thing as I like my barley wines like this. Nose is a gorgeous burst of caramel. Also getting wheat, bread, vanilla. Taste is amazing. Sweet caramel, but not overpowering. Getting a hint of brandy, some grapes, and a bit of bitterness on the back end. Some oak and some piney hop bitterness. The malts are definitely strong. Mouthfeel is nice a creamy - coating the mouth. Overall, a splendid beer and one that I will also age and test in coming years.

2016. Drank at cellar temperature. Aroma is like a caramel-drizzled sweet croissant (a bit on the raw, doughy side) topped with raisins, and more general 'yeastiness.' Tastes of toffee and sherry notes with some moderate heat at the end. More of a silky mouthfeel than sticky. As is, a very nice BW. I could certainly imagine it ageing well.
