2.85/5 rDev -29.3%
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.

4.65/5 rDev +15.4%

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

3.81/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Deep, darker amber color with a small cap of creamy off-white head that laced the glass nicely. Aroma was bourbony and barleywiney, sweet with caramel malts, some notes of spice and candied fruits. Lots of dark malty sugars in the taste--toffee, caramel, etc.--big bourbon, notes of oak, toasted coconut and vanilla, some earthy and resinous hop bitterness coming in mid- to end-palate. On the fuller side of medium-bodied, sweet and boozy and a little messy, but could mellow out with more age. Good overall.
