This big barleywine is a thick, ruddy dark brown. The head on top is tan and creamy, standing at just under one finger and leaving a ring where it settles followed by some creamy spotting beneath.
This has plenty of character, and it's a big malty beast. The aroma and flavor are full of woods, toasted dark sugar, blackstrap, and a more of a brown sugar underlying. Some heat shows strongly without hitting too hard.
This beer has a sturdy feel in its full body with good movement, some alcohol coming in but remaining smooth and crisp with just enough carbonation to make it flow without being overdone

Bourbon doesn't add much on top of the normal version

Very smooth beer. A bit heavy on the sweet edge with a maple kind of thing going on. Vanilla seems to be there also. Probably could use some age to round things out. But it's a nice beer. Glad I picked it up.

Appearance: pours very dark, one of the darkest barleywines I have had, not much head
Aroma: Blast of Caramel notes and bourbon, sweet toffee, malt, and vanilla not much more than that, smells like your average BABW but on steroids.
Taste: Tons of toffee and bourbon (lots of bourbon), The bourbon stays lingers but the flavor changes form toffee to caramel to vanilla than back to caramel. as it warms up The flavors seem to meld together but not so much as you cant distinguish the flavors.
Overall: very complex and changes well as it warms. quite a remarkable beer. I will certainly be picking up a couple more of these to age (if i can find them again).
