2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours brown with a thin tan head. Smells of pesiny hops, some dark fruit, sweet malt. Tastes syruppy and overly sweet with a heavy astringency.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 2011 keg tapped at FredFest. Pours orange copper with a pretty beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor that starts bitter then turns sweet. Very strange, but tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Keir- thanks, Keir! He said it was a 2007. Pours a deep, clear red-amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma had dark fruits, resin, caramel malts- simple and solid. The flavor was even more resinous, and coupled with a bitterness it suggested there was some hop character left; probably the alcohol, but I could be fooled. Caramel malts and dark fruits round it out. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Good barleywine that apparently ages well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (2003): Ruby or fiery caramel, thin spritzy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Bready, apple skin, and raisins on the nose.   Much the same on the tongue, smooth, not big nor sweet. The 9.1% ABV is well masked.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Subtle hop bite emerges on the finish.   Also a bit sweeter.   Mellowed out me thinks but held up well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2003 bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted light bread, caramel, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of orange peel, toffee, peach, light note of alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. One of the bitterest barleywines I've had (though not quite as extreme as renditions like Old Crustacean), and a little too acidic for me, but the aroma is surprisingly pleasant thanks to more emphasis on malt than hops.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz. #10--this is a ’99 bottling tasted in 08. Still has a gasp under the cap, good sign. Still pours up a big head, good sign. Pours deep murky dark brown with ruby highlights. Thick, creamy tan head and lots of sudsy lace. Huge nose of toffee, fresh-cut hardwood, apples, caramel, and rubbing alcohol. Medium, slightly creamy body. Still got a bit of carb spritzing around in the farther corners here and there. Apples, caramel, toffee, woodiness, tobacco, leather--all those delectable aged BW notes are here. Unfortunately, they brought over their unpleasant neighbor, a fumigant, harsh rubbing alcohol note that gets worse and worse from the attack through the finish. Super dry alcohol finish. This is a hot and bothered beer even at 9 years of age. All the yummy flavors together are so enticing, but then that burning twang comes in...it’s like hanging out with the most beautiful woman you’ve met in a while and then watching her pee her pants.

Dark red pour with white head, aroma and tastes include vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, with some bitter roast and some burnt caramel. Pretty good, standard malt-driven barley wine.
