2.85/5 rDev -29.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Pours a clear, deep ruby color with quite a bit of carbonation. A good 1" of light khaki head forms, which has very good retention and lacing.
Smell: Smell of caramel, citrus hops, slight oxidation and bourbon, and a hefty dose of alcohol. Honestly is one grew on me after a while, and I'm still not a huge fan. Fusel alcohol really takes this one over.
Taste: Light caramel and oxidation come through first, followed by a big citrus hop punch that seems misplaced. A bit of bourbon and vanilla come through next. Finish is heavy with fusel alcohol.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is actually very pleasant, aside from the highly alcoholic finish. Right at medium bodied with high carbonation and very smooth drinking. Overall, I went from really disliking this beer, to warming up to it after a bit, to dislike again. Too much alcohol, and the citrus hops were not complemented well by the barrel.
Serving type: bottle

4.65/5 rDev +14.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
A: Pours an opaque mahogany with a white ring of head.
S: Dark fruits, red wine must, vanilla, coconut, caramel, toffee in the nose.
T: Vanilla up front, followed by a wave that oscillates between wine must and orange and rye, coconut and vanilla. A touch of alcohol. Delicious.
M: Full bodied and smooth, with a slight alcohol tingle. Perhaps a tiny bit flat.
O: Few flaws pull down this magnificent beer. Definitely recommended if you like barrel aged barleywines.
Serving type: on-tap
