Pours dark mahogany. Slight head quickly retreats to a course bubble rim. Strong nose of sweet malts, oak, and dried fruits. The bourbon is much more pronounced in the taste. Moderate sweetness is appropriate and balanced by figs and prunes. The beer has a moderate viscosity in terms of the feel. Low to medium carbonation. Very smooth.

This is a fine barley wine that certainly benefits from the barrel. Recommended for a BA ale.
