4.3/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bomber in to a snifter, 2012 vintage.
A - off-reddish brown; 1/8th inch head; a little lacing with no retention; very little bubbly carbonation
S - boozy; plums and raisins; brown sugar, maybe a little vanilla; a little bit of oak; bourbon!
T - bourbon; grapes; raisins; sweet bread; caramel; just a touch of coconut; some chocolate notes here as well
M - this beer is packing some heat...will certainly do better with some time behind it; medium body; mild carbonation; slick; stays there for a bit then disappears...smooth; a little syrupy
O - thankfully I've got a few more of these...this is one of those beers that will get much better with time; it's boozy, delicious; plenty of flavors here with the right amount of whiskey and oak present; great barleywine

3.81/5 rDev -13%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
On tap; poured into a snifter.
Appearance - a caramel brown, little to no head and that leads to no lacing.
Smell - some sweetness, spice, a tangy alcohol.
Taste - sweet bourbon, some cognac, a hint of brown sugar, cinnamon and spice.
Feel - this is a sweet, smooth barley wine. The ABV is present, but very welcomed!
Overall - an excellent brew, but certainly overrated, especially considering the price point.
Serving type: on-tap
