look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a dark burgundy color with very nice carbonation and a thin tannish green head that eventually subsides to a thin lacing ring.

S - Big nose with a healthy dose of vanilla, toasted toffee, oak, bourbon, and slight traces of maple. The nose is sweet and for the strength, while boozy, it's not obnoxiously so.

T - Slightly medicinal, boozy, and sweet. Bourbon takes the front seat immediately and doesn't let go, dominating throughout. Fairly heavy oaky wood flavors, roasted toffee/caramel, and bourbon with some dark fruitiness added in. Everything blends together very nicely without being cloyingly sweet. There's a substantial boozy effervescence during and after the sip.

M - Thick, full bodied, syrupy, and leaves a massive sticky coating of sugar on the lips. The mouth is filled with oak and bourbon for a lingering and sweet finish.

O - This is a very bold barley wine, next time, I will most likely split the bottle as it is a little intense to drink all 22 oz in one sitting! Bottom line, this is an awesome beer and well worth it if you're lucky enough to get some.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark murky caramel, little to no tan head, leaves fast to disk. No lace.

S - Soy and pineapple - basically teriyaki. TONS of booze too.

T - Cocoa adds to the smell attributes, chocolate chips cookie feel.

M - Heavy body, decent carb, pretty good balance considering the flavors and the abv.

D - Cmon, palatte killer and will put you on the floor.
