look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

A - It was a cloudy brownish color, which is why I knocked it down. The head was pretty impressive for a BA 13% beer, though, so overall it was above average.

S - The main thing I got from it was the pappy. Every time I'm lucky enough to try a pappy BA beer, it just has the smoothest bourbon notes I could imagine. Luckily, the base beer stacks up very well to the barrel, also. It's fairly fruity, lots of caramel. Only knock is that the aroma wasn't jumping out at me.

T - The taste had no such issue. I was bombarded with the same flavors as the nose. For 13%, this thing hid the alcohol quite well. Just got a lot of sweet caramel fruitiness, and that pappy is there again. Such a smooth finish with a minimal alcohol presence.

M - It wasn't as thick as I'd expect, but it didn't really bother me. The drinkability was improved for me because of this. It had enough of a body, but I was expecting a pretty full mouthfeel going in. The carbonation was spot on as well. Low-mid, perfect for a BA barleywine.

O - Phenomenal stuff. Voodoo is really killing it with their barrel program. The pappy Black Magick and this are just at the top of the BA stout and barleywine categories for me. The only barleywine I can think of I might've preferred is King Henry, but it's because I really enjoyed the stout characteristics because the barrels had held Rare. I wish I didn't have to drive or I would've sat there drinking it til it kicked or I did.

Had on tap at the 9.28 Voodoo barrel room release.

A- This had a slightly murky brown color. Not the most appealing color, but not too off putting either.

S- Pappy! And lots of it.

T- Once again, a lot of pappy in the taste. Great bourbon notes, with no burn at all in the finish. Great overall taste.

M- This is the only area that I felt needed some improvement. It could use a little more malt in the base to ' thicken' up the brew.

O- Top notch beer. On my list of top 3 barleywines I have had.
