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.

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.

4.38/5  rDev +8.1%

A: Poured medium brown, like a caramel and toffee in colo,r with amber highlights, nice dirty white cap, good retention for the style and minimal lacing

S: Nice hints of toffee, caramel, vanilla, oak and light cocoa

T: A nice blend of toffee, caramel upfront which is the mainstay of the beer. The barrel brings a very light bourbon, vanilla and oakiness to the mix which is understated not underwhelming. The base beer is very strong. A booze sting is prevelant throughout. There is a light residual sugar sweetness on the body and finish as well. The finish is sweet toffee and caramel candy, light bitterness and lingering sweetness on end with a hint of vanilla

M: Medium, medium-full body. well carbonated for style being low-medium. A nice sweetness, decadent and creamy texture

O: Very good. I would compare this Blighs Dry Dock anyday.
