650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 bottle.

Appearance - Deep amber. Small khaki head. A few bubbles in the collar.

Smell - Bourbon. Fruity aroma. A bit of apple. Brown sugar and caramel.

Taste - Just like the aroma. Bourbon. Apple fruitiness. Makes it seem kinda Belgian. Brown sugar sweetness, but dries out just a bit in the end.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Very enjoyable. Very different from its other bourbon barrel barleywine brethren.

Very sweet but great.

It reminds me of JW Lees Harvest Ale.

Not a whole lot of barrel character but I get dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, candy, and toffee.
