Notes / Commercial Description:
"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"

Draft version served at the Wildwood beer dinner.

The beer pours a copper amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is sweet and oaky, with vanilla and chocolate taking center stage. I also get some nuts and black cherry vanilla in the sweet nose, which adds to the attraction. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely in this smooth, sweet barleywine, and I get a hint of bourbon and heat from alcohol in the finish. Mouthfeel is very full and rich, with a long, soft, plush finish.

This is a very impressive BW, and one that I think can only improve with time. Right now, I get a hint of alcohol and bitterness in the finish that I expect will fade and integrate over time.

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.
