look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

On tap at Steingarten LA for a Bruery tap takeover. Paired with a delicous chocolate cake w/ hazlenut sauce.

A - Dark brown with no head. As it warms, it is almost the color of flat coca cola.

S - The booze is at the forefront. Heavy burbon smell but sweet raisins come through as well

T - The barrel aging is very apparent in this but very drinkable considering the abv. The burbon is delicious, but does not overpower the complexity. Very sweet. Strong toffee in the front that moves into light chocolate and raisins.

M- Medium to full mouthfeel. Appropriate for the flavors. Good carbonation is present. This is important to me as I am not the biggest barleywine fan. Thick and a little syrupy.

O - Ive been wating to try this for awhile and having it makes me more excited for my bottles of BT. Delicious and sweet, excellent paired with dessert. It exceeded my expectation and I look forward to having it again.
