Fills the glass with a rich dark mahogany color and a dense and creamy tan colored head. Sweet bourbon and cocoa notes comes right out front with a faint woody undertone. Caramel/toffee notes come out as it warms.
Creamy sweetness upfront with a heavy dose of toffee and cocoa. Nice touch of vanilla and oak. A bit of a roasted note in the background helps it from being too sweet. Full-bodied and velvety smooth with each sip. Overall, a delicious barrel aged beer. Nice to see the blend of barley wine into used BCBS barrels.
