Thanks for sharing this Nate, poured at cellar temp, 4 oz pour.
Smells is bourbon and oak, with vanilla, toffee, caramel, dark fruits, very nice.
Taste is akin to the nose with bourbon barrel character present but not overly bourbon-y. Nice barrel notes of vanilla, toffee, caramel, and oak. Balanced and drinkable.
Mouthfeel is medium, low-medium carbonation, smooth, sticky.
Overall this is a great bourbon barrel aged barleywine, I'll be enjoying this again soon for sure.

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
