4.13/5 rDev +2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 22 ounce to a snifter glass
A- crystal clear ruby red, minimal carbonation, 2 finger slightly off white head that forms a tight white bubbled lace around the top of the glass
S- toffee and caramel up front, citrus hops shine through, grapefruit, mango, sweet toasted malt, booze soaked dark fruits.
T- brown sugar, sugary Malts, big toffee, earthy notes from the hop bittering, cherry wood, very aggressive with an alcohol at the end
M- very big and bold in body, very sweet, smooth like bourbon, finishes dry
O- wow, big huge complex barley wine, great hop flavoring, extreme mealtimes, great all around, the alcohol is hidden very well also.

4.04/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Nearly no head, and it settles to rim bubbles. Nearly no spots for lace. The color is deep amber.
Warm and semisweet malty. Very rich.
Starts subtly, but the strong malt base provides lots of alcohol warmth. There's a bitter presence that provides balance. The mouthfeel is super rich but the carbonation is not lost. Very warming.

S-toffee, bourbon, oak, brown sugar, vanilla, nutty, light pine
T-toffee, caramel, nutty, bourbon, oak, little dark fruit, malty
F-medium body with light carbonation, smooth and a little boozy
O-decent Barleywine and not as much booze as I expected, but wouldn't put this in my upper echelon of Barleywines
