Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Barrel Aged Barley Wine has never tasted so splendid. We changed to barrels from a different distillery because we were unhappy with the performance from the barrels we used before. Wow, that was the correct decision.

look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

64 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown without any real head. Lightly wispy surface with a few bubbles.

Smell - Very woody. At first, I didn't think the bourbon was very strong, but as it warms, it becomes very dominant. Blends in with the caramel and brown sugar very well. Kinda fruity, too.

Taste - Brown sugar sweetness up front. Bourbon kicks in quickly. Lots of wood. Wood becomes quite dominant in the back end. Strong bitterness in the finish, too. Boozy.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Boozy. Bitter finish.

Overall - It's an excellent barleywine. I didn't really notice how good it was until I was drinking it without thinking about it.
