An amazing beer. Malty, caramel, toffee tastes. Amazing aromas of fruits, sweetness. Just the right amount of bourbon flavors and smells. So easy drinking for a big beer. Complex and balanced, this smells like . . . like happiness. I was blown away by the first sip. And I was wanting more at the last. This is the epitome of what drinkers of so-so beer are missing. There's nothing I don't like about this beer or that I can think of that would make it better. This is the kind of thing that makes craft beer my passion.

Surprisingly on tap at San Diego Brewing Co, poured into an 8 oz goblet
A: Cola-like color, no head and viscous.
S: Booze and toffee are the prominent aromas. Notes of coconut, nutmeg, oak and cherry as we'll. Strong bouquet carried by ample alcohol volatiles.
T: Flavors follow but notes of vanilla are right at the front. Also picking up notes of tobacco and ripe fruit. Finishes long and sweet with lots residue between sips...in a good way.
M: chewy, sticky, yummy
Serving type: on-tap

Another outstanding brew from Goose Island. What it lacks in appearance it makes up for in taste, twofold. Barleywines, nowadays, seem to lack that barley presence in favor of the coffee/chocolate tastes. This is not one of those. The head lacing are virtually nonexistent. So what? If you have no fear of the dark you will feel right at home here.
