Poured into a snifter at room temperature.
A - Pours a dark brown color with 1.5 fingers of beige head. The lacing is long lasting.
S - Bourbon and the fore, malt in the middle and a little hops on the finish.
T - Carmel and wood followed by a lot of bite from the hops.
M - Mouthfeel is medium with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O - A little too much bite for a good barley wine. Might be good with aging. Given the price, I'll pass on getting more.
