Excellant barleywine . Big whiskey barrel flavor, plums, vanilla. very assertive flavor and aroma. Medium plus body. Not to hippy. Pairs great with dessert. Lively carbonation. Great head retention. This is awesome. I wish I could get in San Diego.

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into hand washed and dried tulip
Aroma of bourbon (light) and some alcohol overtones. As it warms, aroma increases.
Head average (4 cm, aggressive pour), light brown, frothy/fizzy, diminishing to 3 mm ring
Lacing poor – small islands of tiny bubbles which rapidly slide down the glass to rejoin the ring
Body very deep amber, slight haze (probably stirred up some sediment)
Flavor of vanilla, oak, malt, some fruity esters, sweet but not cloying, alcohol stomach warming starts immediately; no hops in aroma or flavor, no diacetyl.
Palate full, creamy, soft carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 4.25, Flavor 4.5, Palate 4.5, Overall 4.5

Batch 1 into a snifter.

Another big sweet brew. Good flavor and BBA mellowing carried the brew, making it drinkable.

White cap
Gold head quickly fades as does the minimal lacing. Bronze color with burgundy tints.
Smell, much wood, some malt, bit of vanilla
Tastes sweet, butterscotch, vanilla, malty with the fainest echo of what was once a bit of hops.
I thought this would be sticky thick, nice mouthfeel, just not as chewy as I expected.
This is good . I'm looking forward to trying my black cap.
