2011 version shared generously by Chico1985.
A- Dark red brown with a nice tan head, about a finger for the beer style. Creamy pillow stays around atop the ale. Spotty lace sticks to the glass.
S- Deep strong caramel and vanilla over an awesome toasty oak barrel whiskey note. Some roast, raisin and slight alcohol.
T- A great, fairly mellowed out blend, nothing really jumps out intensely. Balance of charred oak, deep caramel sweets, vanilla, peppercorn spice, raisins, dark fruit cherries, whiskey and slight alcohol.
MF- Silky thick oily body with low smooth carbonation. Fairly warm feel rounds it out quite nicely.
Awesome balance of flavor. Once I'm done with King Henry the scores will come through, what is the true king of bourbon barley wines. Can't compare them in retrospect. A truly balanced master craft.

4.19/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a clear auburn color, with 1/2" of light khaki colored head. pretty nice retention time, and ultimately reduced down to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. minimal lacing.
Smell: Rich, sticky toffee, vanilla, hints of wood, medium amount of oxidation, which does not retract too much, and is reasonable considering this is 4 years old.
Taste: Toffee, caramel, sherry, wood, vanilla, and hints of oxidation, although not as prevalent as the nose. Sweet, but not too much so especially for this style.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full mouthfeel, appropriate carbonation, sticky with residual sugars. Again, good. Overall, this probably would have been better a year ago, but still has retained much of its quality. A bit oxidized, but does not affect the beer too much overall. I have a 2011 that I will open very soon and hope it has faded a bit less than this.
