Poured from a corked and caged 750 l bottle. Very stubborn cork. Pours out a clear reddish brown. Some mild haze in the glass. Nice thick cream colored head which dissipates slowly leaving behind thick, sticky lacing.

Strong aroma of grapefruit hops. Malty notes come in to complement. Caramel, toffee and some peppery spice.

Grapefruit leads the flavor. Caramel, cream, pepper, and lemon. Mild bourbon. Some hints of oak and leather.

Medium-thick mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Creamy feeling on the tongue. Extended hop bitterness.

This is a decent barleywine but I was surprised by the lack of bourbon/barrel in the nose. Bourbon flavors were very subdued as well. Boosting the bourbon nose and taste would be nice. Very heavily hopped as well. Almost leans into the DIPA category.

Bottle. Lots of hop in the aroma and in the taste along with caramel, toffee and oak. Didn't pick up a lot of bourbon but a really good Barleywine.

To reference an 80's Wendy's commercial, Where's the bourbon?

Poured into teku glass. A clear dark mohagany brown with a 1/2 finger brown head that dissipates rather slowly leaving nice lace. Nice dried stone fruits and brown sugar in the nose. Taste follows with dried fruit, raisins, cherry, hints of bourbon and some alchohol, but unfortunately it has a slightly unpleasant bitterness that is somewhat different that a hoppy bitterness. It might appeal to some but detracted from the beer for me. Mouth is substantial, slightly viscous, sweet, but not quite cloying. Overall, a decent attempt but unfortunately it misses the mark for me.

Certainly not the best Barleywine I've had. There is an appealing brashness, but I find it lacking in depth and complexity. Drinks more like a hot porter than a Barleywine.

Has a great body to it, I'm a big fan of barley beer and a nice taste of bourbon at the end result. Great beer company and good buy.
