Thanks to bman113vr for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is definitely that of a barrel-aged beer. I get a lot of bourbon and whiskey notes, as well as some toffee, caramel, brown sugar and molasses. The flavor is also very nice. I get some pine from the hops, as well as some brown sugar, molasses, caramel malt and whiskey. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

A much darker appearance than I anticipated: very dark amber with some ruby and near-purple edges, along with a small khaki colored head, leaving sticky spots and an oily sheen down the glass.

Rich, expressive aroma: lots of burnt sugars (caramels, toffee), definite wood, bready sweetness, mild alcohol presence, and a little bit of dark fruit presence.

The flavor is relatively balanced and drinkable for a beer of this heft: big notes of caramel, toffee, fruit cake, and oak. Mild vanilla, though not as much as I like to find in barrel-aged barleywine.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Very enjoyable.

Had on-tap at Local Habit. A bit pricey for a 10 oz, due to its 13.8 abv. ($8.50)

a- opaque red, short off-white head.

s- barley, barley, barley. whiskey. little to hint that you are about to drink a beer.

t- sweet barleywine, then rye whiskey. lots and lots of whiskey. there are some hops hidden there, somewhere.

m- thick and mysterious. whiskeybeer.

o- sipped this badboy on a cold night in San Diego. perfect for warming up your tongue. tastes like they were able to leech out some of that devil's cut in those rye whiskey barrels. brilliant and tasty beer.
