Picked this up at the Emelisse Brewery during ZeeBra Fest. Slightly cloudy amber-mahogany pour with a two finger white head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is big and buttery with lots of bourbon along with hints of vanilla, caramel, oak, butterscotch, and toffee. The taste follows suit with rich oak and bourbon notes front and center. Hints of butterscotch, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, vanilla, and booze. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy with a subtle creaminess and velvety smooth, warming finish. Overall, this is amazingly drinkable 12% Barley Wine and another great offering from Emelisse!

Nice sweet barley wine, much lower in hop than the 2012 version. sweet creamy, strong, and long lasting
