12 oz Bottle poured into a snifter... let it warm up a little.. opens up so nicely
A-Dark amber/brown color...nice head that dissipates but lingers around the edge of the glass
S- magnificent...rich vanilla and bourbon notes with a light cold hint of malt
T- Man....rarely do beers live up to the hype... this definitely does... rich vanilla maybe caramel notes...nice barrel tartness on the back sides of the tongue that.compliments maltiness wonderfully.
M- Great body..coats the tongue...a little tingley as it warms.
O- This is a great great beer. If you are lucky enough get your hands on it... it lives up to the rest of the Bourbon County Family

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.
