2014 bottle poured into a small tulip glass. Excited to try the 2014 World Beer Cup Champion for a small brewing company.

A: Pours an extremely dark brown in color with just a thin line of khaki head that reduces quickly and leaves the tiniest collar I've seen. Viscosity appears super thin for the ABV, by appearance alone I wouldn't put this over 10%.
S: Wafting aroma of bourbon, toffee, dark fruits, vanilla, caramel, oak. As it warms, it becomes a sweet bourbon bomb.
T: Mimics the aroma. The bourbon stays on the after taste, making each sip very sweet up front.
M: Carb level is on the lower end, and is a perfect fit for this beer. It lingers as semi-dry semi-rich, which given the large flavor profile is very enjoyable.
O: I appreciate this beer for it's bold qualities throughout. I am not a barleywine guy, but I love bourbon. This delivers the best of the beer and bourbon world, making a barleywine that I find highly drinkable.

Smelled of dried dog food and didn't taste much better. Perhaps I'm missing something here, or I had a bad bottle. Nevertheless, I certainly prefer others.

Thick, meaty, sweet, delicious, perfect barleywine. Waaaaaay better than expected when ordered on draft at Belmont Station.
