B-. Kind of harsh when young, but great with age. 2009=A with sherry notes. 2019 seems a bit more mellow 4-9-19 as far as bitter hops, loads of malty caramel and alcohol in the aroma, mild floral hops.

Delicious, complex hoppy malty beast. profile - June 26, 2015
Not crazy 'bout barleywine beers, but this one was great. Good balance, not boozy at all, hidden nicely, and not overpowering. Great finish/aftertaste. 4-Stars(Enjoyed on tap)

22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a dark nutty brown with light carbonation. Not good head retention but decent lacing. Mouthfeel is rich and heavy. At 9.6 % this is a strong brew. Aroma is heavy on toasted malt and caramel. Taste is smoky malts with a resiny hop kick. Maybe even some Bourbon in there. Finish is very bitter and the high alcohol content is obvious. First Barleywine I've ever had. Not a big fan, too hoppy and too strong for me. Maybe I'll try it again some time in the future to see if my tastes change. Until then, I won't be drinking this again anytime soon.
