From 03/14/15 notes. Big thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this; thanks Ross. 22 oz. bottle into a taster glass.

Pours a murky medium brown color with a few bubbles and no real head. Lots of sweet dark fruits, figs, delicious sweet bourbon, toasted malts, toffee, and caramel malts. Super smooth and very good. Well worth it.

On tap at Voodoo Homestead in Homestead, PA. Got two pours of this one.

Pours a moderately dark amber, with a spotty quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells richly of deep malt and bourbon- the bourbon is huge on this one. I can't really tell that it's Pappy, because I'm not well-versed in it, but I do know that the bourbon smells nice. I also get aromas of vanilla, coconut, caramel, toffee, and tobacco.

This is a wonderful barrel-aged barleywine. I've heard reports that it's falling off a bit at this point. Those reports seem to be exaggerated, or they're just about the bottles at this point. There's a big amount of sweet malt and grain up front, some honey, molasses, brown sugar, toffee, and some leafy tobacco bitterness near the end.

This is pretty thick bodied, with a syrupy, and very full mouthfeel, along with a lower level of carbonation.

One of the best barleywines ever. A really impressive achievement.

A bit of a thin and wispy burnt caramel color in the glass with a bit of carb. The smell is powerfully boozy with all the typical hits of a strong bourbon. Mouthfeel is a bit thin at this ABV and the finish is hot despite the age. Caramel, toffee, vanilla, and coconut finish are the flavors I get. The beer is a vehicle for the barrel in this case, and I think that's just fine. Very complex and interesting beer for the bourbon drinker.
