Served in 12oz goblet. Poured a nice, opaque mahogany-brown color with less than a half-inch of light tan head that had very good retention and pretty good lacing.

The aroma was mostly sweet malts, with a bit of a hop tang in the background. On the tongue, the beer was pretty much the same, with the addition of an odd "funk" in the middle. there a slight bitter and smoky finish.

The body was about average for the style, a little fuller than Bigfoot perhaps, and had a dry finish. Drinkability was OK, but I would probably only have 1 at a sitting. Overall, a nicely solid brew. Worth trying if you see it.

Color- liquified medium brown toffee. Huge head.

Aroma- spiced rum raisin cake.

Taste- Starts with a spicy nuttiness then the hops appear finishing with a nutty vanilla note from the barrel with hoppy dryness. The finish is a bit jagged, and our rating reflects our perception of the finish. Also, the alcohol is "hot" with the esters not masked. Don't serve too cold. Optimal temp is 45-50 degrees to settle the finish more.

Poured from corked 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

Chill hazed reddish brown colored beer with a tall dark khaki colored beer.

Smells sweet and fruity with some pecan and vanilla. Bourbon while present doesn't appear as a distinct whiskey aroma only as vanilla and oak. Little peppery and woody and a little cork scent.

Starts out Woody and bitter with a sharp bitter pecan flavor like biting down on a bit of shell. Bitterness mellows quite a bit and the vanilla hits you first. Has a strong bittersweet thing going just when you think it has softened it snaps your taste buds again. Earthy mushroom flavors and some vanilla caramel flavors, this is in the upper 50% of Barleywines for bitterness. I can smell more subtle elements but the bitterness is covering them up.

Mouthfeel is good.

A fair barleywine for those who like them on the bitter end of the flavor spectrum.
