Beer added by: msubulldog25 on 12-15-2010

"Barley wine matured in bourbon barrels, 50% aged nearly a year. Brewed with 100% malted barely, Hypnosis pours a shimmering burnt caramel glass. Aromas of vanilla, oak, plum, caramel and bourbon begin the hypnotizing process. Amazing flavors of malted barley, hops, plum, fig and bourbon mesmerize even the most hardened hearts. 12% alc/vol 70 IBU's"

Pour...golden dark brown, lighty carbonated...light lacing.

Nose...strong of bourbon, vanilla, honey, sweetness, carmel with barrel characteristics.

Taste...dark fruits, leather, vanilla, very boose heavy, carmel velvety goodness as it graces my throat.

Impressed that it used both 15/20 yr old pappy van winkle barrels. Delectable and very smooth to drink.

12 oz. glass enjoyed at The Beer Mongers PDX, during impromptu tasting with The Usual Suspects, tulip glass $4, 2010 version, 8.16.11.

Slightly cloudy amber brown body with some reddish highlights, no visible carbonation. 1/4 finger carbonation with quick dissipation with some lacing retaining. Very interesting nose, toffee, some burnt sugar, vanilla, some barrel notes. Taste mirrors nose, not overly sweet, nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is on the full side of medium, not much effervescence. Pretty boozy but the aging has tamed the ABV a bit, I'd be very interested to see how this taste a few years from now. A real sipper to be taken seriously.
