4.14/5 rDev -6.3%
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.

4.21/5 rDev -4.8%
On draft at the brewery. Appearance is a dark reddish brown with minimal foam. Smell is alcohol. Taste is caramel, maple syrup, and raisin. There's also a healthy taste of bourbon without the bite. The sweetness results in something of a syrupy mouthfeel. Overall very, very good.

Deep reddish brown color. Great color. Sandy colored minimal head with some spotty lacing.
Caramelized sugar, coconut, vanilla, toffee. Very smooth smell. It all melds perfectly.
It's a great integration of a Barleywine and bourbon. The caramel and vanilla make it like a sundae. Toasted coconut shows up as an extra topping.
Smoooth mouthfeel. Thick but soft. It works exactly as it should to support the flavors.
A world class barrel aged Barleywine that really nails the play between flavor and body.
