Aged 2 years, 22 oz bomber
Poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours a ruddy amber, brown color with a 1/2 inch of khaki colored head. Head recedes to a film that retains the length of the beer. Minor wisps of lacing are left on the glass.

S: Nose is tons of toffee, caramel notes, raisin, date, and a hint of citrus. After 2 years, there is still a decent amount of alcohol detectable in the nose.

T: Taste is loaded with toffee and caramel at the forefront, lending its way to a raisin, date, and brown sugar flavoring. Hefty malt body continues in to the finish with a hint of citrus, pine, and a touch of alcohol.

M: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, creamy, slick body that dries up right before ending with a sticky finish.

O: Goes down easy, pretty tasty, somewhat filling, big kick, nice representation of style.

An 1809 Highball glass contains this clear, dark copper beer with half an inch of loose, beige head that lasts a few minutes. Slight spotty lace and a clean film are left on the glass.

This one has nut aromas with a fruity, sweet spice underneath. One will find dates, figs, some sherry and light grapefruit as it warms.

Caramel with some roasted notes and lots of raisin flavors. Black tea and wheat bread are nice additions. Bitterness is fair. Warmth allows this one to mellow.

Full bodied with alcohol, it is tame for its size. Carbonation is modest and soft and residual sugars are left behind.

Easy drinking with food, but also good with conversation.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre snifter.

A- pours a dirty brownish/orange with a 1 finger tan head. Thick lacing that resides quickly.

S- brown sugar, toffee, citrus and pine.

T- sweet toffee, toasted malts maybe some rye, citrus and bitter pine with slight spicy finish.

M- medium body and carbonation. This beer drinks amazingly! Abv is hidden well and has nice creamy, slightly chewy feel.

O- very good American Barleywine. This isn't a Wow beer but a very good, solid one.

2012 bottle poured into a tulip glass.

Beautiful, deep amber color with ruby highlights. I got a finger of fluffy, white head. Surprising for the style, and it left some really nice lacing.

The smell is quite a nice mix of caramel and citrus. Wheat bread, with just a hint of sweetness coming from subtle raisin.

I can tell that the hops have fallen off a bit, but they're still very much present. Bitter citrus and pine are interestingly layered over a deep malty base. Well done, I'd like to try this in a vertical tasting someday. The mouthfeel is spot on as well. Thick and coating, but with a decent amount of carbonation to compliment the hops.

An interesting take on the style from what is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries. Looking forward to trying this again.

Poured from a 22oz bomber

A- pours a thick dark mahogany brown... reddish tint. Big white fluffy head... stays for minutes. Very sticky lacing to the glass...very sexy LOL

S- smells of a nice melody of figs, raisins, sweet dark fruits... sugary malt

T- again mimic's the smell but very well rounded and pronounced. Sweet ripened figs, dried raisins, sweet apricots.... earthy hop balance

M- thick and creamy... syrupy liquid... mild prickly carbonation... lingering bitterness and sweetness

O- I much prefer a englsih barely wine over American. But I bought these with the intent to age for awhile.... this has been laid done for about 8 months and has aged finely... I'm looking toward to the next 4 for many years... great barely wine from a somewhat local brewery....
