MMMM....good!!! IMpressive! And I didn't even age it! Very sweet and fruity, as a barleywine should be, but its incredible alcohol content blows most others away. Apples, raisins, pears, and a wonderfully warm feel make this a perfect winter beer. The color is a bit lighter amber for a barleywine, but the flavor is so immense, who cares?

Chyba za swiezy troszke, ale fajny mimo to, te owoce dowaline czuc w smaku, slodkie, nieco syropowe, goryczka niemala. W sumie smaczne to, a bedzie imho lepiej

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 W aromacie melasa, ciemne owoce, czyć słodowość, lekki karmel, ale dość mało intensywny aromat, alkohol się przebija. W smaku dość słodkie, goryczkowe, lekka kwasowość. Całkiem treściwe, alkohol mocno wyczuwalny na finiszu. Nie jest to ideał w stylu... The_Osprey (9120) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2017
October 2017 - Bottle share in Hackney. Big thanks to Kenny. As 'Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine', a mere 15%, 2005 vintage. Hazy orange, still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is orange and resin, also a little oxidised. Body is smooth, soft to low carbonation. Taste is sugary, some orange peel, rich malts, alcoholic finish. A little oxidation showing up in the middle. Hard to escape that at 12 years old but still very drinkable and an enjoyable beer.

Bottle shared in Hackney - many thanks to Mitch. Vintage 2005. Pours unclear amber with a small, foamy off-white head. Meaty aroma, some caramel, oxidation, bread, fruitcake. Big sweet flavour with lots of ripe, meaty berries, caramel, low bitterness, just a little earth, figs. Full bodied, super thick and chewy, oily, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, lots of sticky toasted sugars, ripe berries, dates and gigs, cherries, fruitcake. This has aged reasonably well. Pretty damn sweet. Great fun.

Got this beer in a 4 pack absolutely awful, not drinkable. Got it because it was 15% did not realize how shitty would be.

Murky dark amber color with a weak light tan colored head of soft foam. Rich dried dark fruit rampant all around with a candied citrus and subtle dry pine finish. Alcohol is noticeable but not distracting. A big boy barleywine.
