beastiefan2k (3715) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2016
12.7oz capped bottle. Vintage 2014. Shared by beerbeggar. Surprisingly not old or big. Its not astringent, its not "big" or anything bad. But its also not particularly anything, a barleywine with a little age but not offputting. Just doesnt stand out but nothing bad. Dark amber brown color.

McNeillR (2264) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Big dark brown, soft murkiness and thin soft greyish brown ringed head. Nose is big Sultana bread and booziness. Initial taste is rich oaty bramble and a a trickle of dessert wine. Carbonation is flat and mouthfeel is thin enough, booze aside. Finishes quite bright, very winey but a swift bready currant linger. Flicks of booziness as it fades.

Bottle, CGarvieUK 10th Anniversary Tasting
