3.63/5 rDev -7.9%
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.

The beer comes in muddy reddish copper color.
The aroma has that classic American barleywine of old hops, earthy, tea leaves, cardboard, brown bag. Behind it there’s a caramel and toffee sweetness and a hint of alcohol.
The flavor follows with a medium plus to light sweetness in the front with a touch of brown sugar and caramel, hints of dark fruit of dried prune and date. Then onto earthy, herbal, leafy heavy bittering of hops. It finishes off of a medium minus amount of bourbon that mellows the beer.
The mouthfeel is medium plus.
For an American attempt at the beer, this is quite good. The age and bourbon probably helped the flavor of the beer too.
