L - pours thick with a dark brown body, very thin beige head
S - sweet, brown sugar, bourbon, booze, caramel, toffee, fruity esters, vanilla, oak
T - sweet and rich with bourbon at the forefront, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, earth, oak, vanilla, some faint roasted barley and stout qualities do come through from the BCBS barrel usage, which add to its complexity
F - full body, smooth, sticky and rich, excellent balance, quite boozy at times but it's supposed to be, finishes with the bourbon and oak lingering
O - a real treat! Excellent bourbon barrel aged barleywine!
