Pours to a deep dark blackish brown body. Nose is a fluffy inch and a half of milk chocolate brown head. Very elegant and sexy in the glass. Nose is a gorgeous rich smell full of sweet bourbon notes and tones of carmel and toffee dancing together in a perfect aroma symphony. The nose of so luscious, I hope the taste stands up to it. Enters into the mouth with smooth and silky feel. Carmel and bourbon are meet with a lingering hop character that shows this was a hoppy Barley-wine to start. Lovely and rich in flavor with tons of sweetness and toffee that really define this beer. There is a nice dryness to the finish of this brew that does well to add a proper element of balance to the beer.

Finally getting around to trying this one, and man was I in for a treat! Waited til it warmed a little to get the true bourbon barrel character, and barrel-aged it was. Lots of dessert-like sweetness in the malt, with burnt sugar, toasted coconut, caramel, and the definite bourbon and oak that was dominant throughout. Tons of bourbon barrel in this one. An amazing beer, just wish the price tag hadn't been so steep. So glad I tried it though! Another great beer by Jackie O's.

This is THE english-style barleywine in my book. Phenomenal.

Poured from a bottle into a Lost Abbey Teku. Very dark, but clear mahogany with ruby tints. Extremely impressive head for a barrel-aged beer. A solid 3 fingers that slowly dissipates down to a thin layer of foam. Monstrously good nose on this beer. Tons of rich toasted malt malt, vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, and butterscotch.

Full body, solid feel, and smooth sweet flavor. Loads of sweet caramel, black strap molasses, creamy vanilla, and rich bourbon notes come at you. Strangely, the only place I don't get a huge wallop of flavor is right at the front of the palate. It's almost as if the individual flavors can't decide which one wants to come first. Then, just when you think the flavor is going to be rather bland, they all charge at you like liquid marshmallows and bourbon without any bite at all. The alcohol is very well-hidden, despite all the bourbon notes, except for a nice warmth on the finish. How a brewer can make such a bourbon-infused beer that drinks so smooth is beyond me.

This is one of those rare beers that would be perfectly content to be poured over a dish of vanilla ice cream. It is easily in the top 3 of all the bourbon-barrel-aged English barleywines I've had, ranking only slightly behind BCBBW and Sucaba and only because it lacks some of the complexities of flavor of those beers. A beautiful beer from Jackie O's that I thoroughly enjoyed.
