3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2005’s: With a prominent alcohol nose, this beer poured beautifully and presented a gray, concentrated two-finger head and a incisive chestnut hue. Pine and roasted malt were present in the finish as well as carmelly brown sugar gusto. This beer sat very well with me.

Pours a very dark red off tap, with a thing light tan head. Great sweetness up front, caramel malts with a big hop finish. Toasty quality to the malts, with a very smooth taste and sustaining bitter finish, should continue to age very well.

This was quite dark for a barleywine, but came off dry and bitter. Could use a more solid body. I would like to try this again, because I know Tucks makes good stuff.
