Appearance - Very dark in color with a reddish tint to it. The head fizzled away very quickly. Good amount of carbination.

Smell - At first it smelled very fruity to me, but then the toffee/syrupy smell came on strong with hints of bourbon. Right at the end it really reminds me of a raw dough smell heh. The smell is great and very strong, I could smell it as soon as I popped the cap.

Taste - The toffee and the caramel really shine through in the taste along with the alcohol.

Mouthfeel - It is quite fizzy which I like.

Drinkability - Goes down alright, think it would go great with a hardy meal of some sorts.

Edit for 2010 MoAS

Much of the same as the last year, but more vanilla/marshmellow flavor and smell. I'd say this years is better and one of the best beers out there. So I am giving a 5. The drinkability is insane consider the ABV.

Had the 12 at the release, absolutely delicious. Only bourbon notes, not too bourbony, not infact too boozy either. All in all, this gives KH a run for the money. The sweetness drops off quickly, but its a delicious sweet tinge that hits you upfront that really makes this beer unique. A sweet BB aged barleywine!

Can't wait to try this next year after its aged a little
