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.

A - maroon in color with thick manila head. Good lacing.

S - very sweet smelling, a very nice bourbon scent.

T - tastes like birthday cake! Such nice caramel, vanilla, sugar, toffee, rich bourbon taste. Glass licking good. Extremely happy with the barrel choice.

M - nice carbonation, no alcohol burn, perfect weight.

O - I was so happy to try this gem. The best barleywine I've ever had! No question about it.

On tap at Barrel Week at Town Hall. Tulip poured and allowed to warm for 30 minutes. Small head that lingers and lingers. Lacing draping the glass. Great appearance.

Smell is impressive. Bourbon, vanilla, toffee, just what I want. Taste is so balanced this year compare to Twisted Jim in the past. The Trace barrels have done wonders. Caramel, bourbon, barrel, and just the right sweetness.

Mouthfeel is luscious and coating to a lasting finish.

Overall, this will be hard to top the rest of the week! Well done.
