AirForceHops (4530) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 11, 2015
22 oz. bottle. Cellared since 24 April 2013. Clearer Amber color with no head. Aroma is a good raisins, plum and date.

Body is medium with a lower carbonation level. Flavor is pretty dark fruit forward with a sugar sweet finish. The overall feel is exactly as it should be, ABV hidden nicely at this point with still a mild hop profile, please try surprised by this.

malrubius (2102) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle from Un Dunís unintentional aging cooler. Reddish copper with lasting flat head. Piney woody bready aroma. Medium fruity sweetness with some toasted caramel brown sugar nuttiness and medium piney bitter fairly clean finish. Full body. After my experience with an ancient bottle of Wnter Wheat that I bought during the same visit to Un Dun I was worried, but this is in decent shape, mildly aged. Overall, a great surprise. Very good.

Bottle shared by Bob - thanks!! Hazy dark amber pour with a tan head. Sweet malty caramel nose. Sweet taste, toffee and caramel with a touch of hops and a slight bitter finish. Nice, certainly on the sweet side.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle shared by Bob and Jon. Aroma is iron, floral, and pine hop. Pours barleywine brown with a nice orange hue and very little head. Taste is great with a tangy orange peel, floral and pine and a great barleywine malt finish. Slightly intense bitterness which sets it appart. Would drink again.
