4.7/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Smell- rich, caramel and amber maple syrup, floral hops, bourbon, oak

Taste- Follows with hops fruity and floral, big caramel and raisin, toasty walnut, bourbon barrel and vanilla, lots of cArAmel and butterscotch on the back end

Feel- viscous, warming, rich, boozy

Fantastic, one of the best barleywine I've had. IMO, Alesmith BA Old Numbskull night edge this out, but this is so wonderful to sip
