12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks, Dave, for throwing this in as an extra!
A: dark, rusty brown
S: really intense: earthy citrus; toffee, vanilla, and oak; burnt brown sugar; spicy cola notes?
T: lots of toffee and brown sugar upfront; light barrel character: oaky vanilla butterscotch; strong hoppy notes; powerful but non-cloying sweetness; strong alcohol presence; could not get enough of this
M: thick, chewy, and sticky
O: fantastic integration of hop notes and barrel character

Pours a muddy copper with no real head retention. Initial smell was intense, however that became milder as it opened up. Resiny hops, vanilla, oak and spice are all present. Toffee and brown sugar sweetness are predominate at first, but mellow to reveal vanilla, oak and warming spice. Moderately carbonated which imparts a coating thick mouthfeel that disappears quickly. Nice warming spice and alcohol presence comes through in the finish. Alcohol is present but well hidden in this BA Barleywine.
