750 ml bottle, corked and caged. Bottled 3/23/11. Chestnut color with a goog tan head. Good retention for the size of this beer, and a nice amount of lace.
Ripe fruit, fig, toffee and caramel in the nose. A bit of bourbon in the background.
Good fruity notes up front. Nice toffee flavor. Some sweetness, but nothing overwhelming. A touch of bourbon, but not a great deal. Some drying oak at the back. Maybe a bit too dry.
Medium body, good carbonation. Easy drinking for such a big beer. Not bad, but seems a bit too dry. Still a good beer.

A big bottle and my Friday after work is looking all good. Poured into a snifter, there is a noticeable cork pop and a lot more head than I expected from a barley wine. It is black in color and the head is huge, rocky, and light tan. Very, very nice looking. The smell is apricots, molases, vanilla, a slight hoppiness, and my mouth is watering. The taste is phenomenal, with boozy fruit, wood, vanilla and a slight banana in there somewhere. It is dry but not too much so, with a noticeable alcohol warmth as it goes down. The hops are there just at the very start and then its all wood aging from there. You taste it, you smell it, and you really get the sense that the aging process rounded off the sharp edges on this. Really, really spectacular. The mouthfeel is pleasantly carbonated and a tad sticky. Overall, I think this is a fantastic barley wine. It is not sweet like most. It could, if anything, use a bit more sweetness and a bit less woody dryness but wow, just really terrific.
