ineedbeer (3457) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2021 Poured from a 750 ml, 2012 vintage bottle. Aroma is caramel forward with notes of dark and light caramel. Lighter notes of toasted bread, burnt sugar and treacle. Hints of raisins, nuts and herbal, resinous hop notes. Light oak, bourbon and alcohol notes. Light oxidation notes of honey, sherry, and hints of cardboard. Pours a slightly murky brown with dark ruby hues on the edges. Medium sized, medium thick tan head that recedes to the edges quickly where it lingers for a bit. Faint lacing and fairly long legs. Flavor is fairly sweet with moderate caramel notes and lighter notes of toasted bread, burnt sugar and treacle. Hints of roast, nuts and raisins. Moderate bitterness and light alcohol notes. Faint notes of oak and bourbon. Hints of herbal, spicy hop notes. Medium light notes of oxidation including sherry, honey and lighter cardboard. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium light carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really solid barley wine that has aged amazingly well. Great malt notes with solid barrel character that work well with the oxidation that age has brought on. Alcohol is well integrated.
