2013 vintage poured into a whisky glass and shared with a few friends.

A monstrous, decadent beast of a beer. Pours a rich carmel cola shade of brown; some real boozy legs, too. Kind of an intimidating-looking brew. Aromas of butterscotch, vanilla, and burnt brown sugar. Lots of wood from the barrels. Based on appearance and aroma, double-checking your glass to make sure you're not drinking straight bourbon would be entirely understandable. Taste is wonderful: mellow vanilla marshmallow, sweet dark fruit, butterscotch, and brown sugar.
Mouthfeel is creamy and viscous, but heavy and domineering; would be near impossible to crush this one in a solo op (however I'm tempted to try it if I can land another bottle). To repeat: a monstrous, decadent beast…and one of the finest barleywines I've had.
