Batch 56 from around 2003 I think.

Pours hazy golden that clears up to a nice clear caramel color. A huge billowy white head fades to nothing by the end of the beer.

Aromas of sherry, deep rich caramel, maple syrup, toffee, butterscotch and little to nothing from the hops. A big 'ole malt bomb.

Flavor is huge caramel, sherry, maple, slight roast even(?), butterscotch some peatiness and bits of smoke, and a slight bit of oxidation.

Pretty big mouthfeel with little to no carbonation.

A nice big barleywine that was a great sipper. I much preferred this over the fresh one I tried this summer.
