Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with a small bit of white collar around the edge of the glass. No real lacing is left on the glass. Some chunks float around in the glass.

Smooth golden malt aroma with a touch of light caramel and a hint of very light toffee. Not a whole lot else going on at this point.

Smooth malty body with a light sweetness. Caramel and a light alcohol note make up the most of things here. Slight bit of fruitiness with a touch of raisin. As with the aroma, nothing wrong but not much going on.

All in all there isn't much her. Nothing wrong or bad about this beer but not much to it. Just a plain old barleywine. Maybe there was more to it when it was fresh.

Served In: Snifter

Color is very opaque chestnut brown, dark with barely a glow, fluffy finger high head of light tan hue which slowly fades down to a thin haze on top and a thick sticky ring around the edge, lace is in thin sheets. Aroma is mostly dark and fruity with plum, raisin, melon, banana, starfruit and toffee. Slight alcoholic note. Taste follows suit with slight dark fruit senses of raisin, plum, and a touch of banana, malts are chewy in the toffee with slight dark caramel. Quite smooth and creamy all the way through with some nicely done, slight piney and dried hop bitterness that enters in very subtle just after the midway point and gains some depth into the finish with some added malty thick depth as well. Feel is medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a couple hollow areas, some uneven texured velevtyness and not quite as hefty or strongly flavored as I like. The alcohol in this starts to hit pretty quick though so its a major sipper, and a good one at that.
