look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Cockeyed Cooper pours a dark mahogany with a huge white head. The head is sticky, making for good retention and even better lacing.

Aroma: The aroma is big and bold, dominated by caramel, toffee, and bourbon alcohol (the beer is aged in bourbon barrels).

Taste: The taste doesn't deviate much from the aroma. The deep, full body is dominated by tastes of malt, bread, and toasted grains. There're hints of caramel, chocolate, and toffee, with a noticeable, but not bad, alcohol presence.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with creamy carbonation and a slight sweetness.

Overall, this is a barrel-aged barleywine done right.

Serving type: bottle

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into large snifter; deep blood-red ruby with a huge fluffy tan head even from a soft pour that fades very slowly, leaving tons of lacing. Smell is big malt, some bitter hops, bourbon and vanilla, and some woody notes. Taste is big malt, a hefty presence of bitter hops, as well as some dark chocolate and dark fruit. Then it all smooths out into bourbon/vanilla/woody flavors. Mouthfeel is huge and creamy. Alcohol is noticeable but not in a bad way.

3.49/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: A real dark hazy copper colored ale, heavy bubbles all over the body rose pretty high in the beginning creating off-white head with a light orange tint, maybe 2/3".

Smell: Light but still strong in the malt department.

Taste: I will try to break it down to the best of my ability, not really complex...a light sweet malt that you can tell was aged barrels but what kind..not good ones. It is also a little sweet almost like a butterscotch. Could use a little tweaking.

Mouth: A bit dry if you ask me, come off a little woody at the end.

Overall: I was expecting a lot more, I have a huge love for all barleywines but this quite didn't do it for me. Factoring in price, you can save yourself a few and grab something more worthwhile. Not to knock it but there is more out there...Salud!
