Bottled in 2011. Has been aging in a cool, dark room ever since. Poured into a DFH snifter glass. A deep dark earth color with a touch of tan head. When swirled, burnt orange hues dance along the sides of the glass. Nice lacing.

I almost laughed out loud after a few sips. The finish on this is so chocolatey and so rich -- it tastes like a really rich chocolate cake. The hops have aged with this beautifully; the combination of the lip-smacking hops and the chocolate note under age is a real treat. Carmelized malts and toffee linger about, with rich rum-soaked fruit notes coming out as the flavor lingers. Sticky, candi sugar note. Full-bodied and alcohol with the aging is so well hidden -- I'm going to be a Flying Mouflan in a few moments.

A fantastic dessert beer and great for a dinner-ending cheese plate. Buy one to have fresh and one to age. A steal in terms of the bargain domain. Thank you, Troegs.

I'm going to say up front that this is my favorite Barleywine. I have had this before and each bottle is better with some added age.

Looks great in a glass. Deep dark red with a small creamy head that actually sits for longer than expected.

Smells sweet and rich. Dark fruits and hops.

Tastes great. Very sweet, so this is a sipper. Really let this one warm up a bit to get the most out of it. A really good hop bite up front, and sweet candy and fruits linger a little after each sip. Almost reminds me of a DIPA/Barleywine because it's so hopppy.

Mouthfeel is perfection. Coats the mouth, not much carbonation at all, which is right for the style.

Despite the ABV, the drinkability is high (for a barleywine). It's a sipper, after dinner beer. I plan on stocking up on any and all bottles I see from this spring release and hope to do a review with some significant age.
