Black cap, batch 2. Thanks for the replacement bottle Jay!

A: Pours clear light caramel color with pretty much no head. Wispy lace. Tons of specks of sediment in suspension.
S: Strong whiskey, vanilla, caramel, and light milk chocolate. Sweet smelling and boozy overall.
T: Taste very sweet, leather, caramel, tobacco, vanilla, grape, prune, whiskey, and oak. Finishes sweet and fruity, and the aftertaste is full of booze and vanilla.
M: The alcohol is hidden very well, not syrupy at all. Slick and sweet mouthfeel not cloying. Very low carbonation but it goes with the beer. Low fizzy mouthfeel, slightly boozy but not warm.
O: Really really good. Nothing wrong with this beer except that its maybe a bit on the sweet side. Nothing a little age wouldn't keep under control. Thanks again jbck109!

I aged this one for about year and was rewarded nicely. Poured into a glass from the bottle, the ale was a golden color with a slight white head that left lacing along the sides of the glass. The beer had a pleasant boozy, malty aroma with hints of vanilla hidden in the aroma. In the initial taste, one gets a nutty, fruity, citrus sensation with hints of vanilla and dark fruit and vanilla in the background. There is a virtual explosion of taste here because there is so much going on. While one gets the warming sensation from the alcohol, it is well masked. The warming continues into the aftertaste with nutty and fruity sensations continuing. By far, this was the winner at a recent testing and my personal favorite from Hoppin' Frog.

A-Clear ruby amber, not much carbonation or head at all.

S-Caramel, molasses, oak and darker fruits.

T-Caramel, molasses, sweet oak, mild darker fruits and some coconut.

M-Lighter, no much carbonation, smooth though.

O-One of the the better Barrel Aged barleywines, not as good as Sucaba but the alcohol is well hidden but some more barrel notes would improve the beer.
