look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
all the 5's are a little egregious, but I swear with one sip this beer rocketed into the stratosphere of my favorites list
A - sunburst red body, foamy tan head that just doesn't die, even at a high ABV
S - notable sharp pineapple hop profile, malt and whisky complete the background
T - amazing. sharp bite of pineapple from the hops, sweet caramel malt, vanilla notes, delicious bourbon tone throughout. this is fabulous stuff
M - creamy, chewy and perfectly bubbly. warming to everything it touches
O - this is a great one. start decently cold and go slow, it opens up beautifully as it warms

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.
