Pours an amber from a bottle, nose is of vanilla and tropical fruit, Flavor is vanilla and slightly toffee, good bitterness like a nice toffee has, not overly alcoholic. Very good beer.

A nice sweet flowery aroma emanates from the glass. Medium white head forms after pouring. A medium feel when drinking. The flavor is a boozy sweet citrus flavor with a little oak mixed in. This is one brew I would get again in a heart beat!

Iím not convinced the aging helped this beer. All the bright floral and citrus notes are gone replaced with sweet, malty, bourbon. Its heavy and not in a great way. Would not buy again

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 9/30/14, drank 2/5/15. The nose has a light malt sweetness and some notes of plum. Wonderful thick head that slowly dissipates, leaving a thin white layer of foam. Decent lacing. Initially the taste is a very sweet, rich malt flavor followed by some slight bitterness and a citrus burst at the end. Then this leaves an amazing burnt caramel toffee flavor thatís incredible for a beer like this. Then vanilla starts to come through (the only aspect that would lead me to think this was barrel aged). Itís very thick and syrupy but it works so well here. It somehow finishes on the dry end and leaves only the caramel/toffee flavor I mentioned earlier. Iím excited to see what age does to this

Vintage 10/23/13 pours a dark orange/ medium brown. Small, thin medium off white head. Aroma is all malt, bread, caramel, roasty. Flavor is very good. Does not taste like an imperial IPA. I get almost no hops except a nice piney resin linger. Great beer, thatís why I rated high. But truly a Barleywine.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper looking IPA. Medium head and full body looking beer. Aromas are pretty mch woody and malty. Not much hops on the nose. Taste and palate are very aggressive though. The mouthfeel is a bit oily and carbonation is medium/low wich makes the body even heavier, as it is already heavy from his aok aging. Alcohol is well balanced as opposed to itís very low hoppiness expected from an IPA. I get fine honey flavours in the biginning then comes the intense and loong woody flavours in the back of the mouth. Malts and wood, this is pretty much what you have to expect from this beer, wich is a good one though!
