Pours an opaque brown very close to black. The first pour us very heady. Thick bubbly mocha colored foam. Surprising for a beer of such alcohol content. Eventually dissolves to a thick ring around the glass.
The aroma is deep and complex. Fruit notes are most prominent. Classic english barleywine style dark fruits are clearly represented in the form of dates, raisins and figs. Secondly the aroma of warm toffee makes it seem like it will be a thick, sticky and sweet treat. As it warms to the appropriate/suggested temperature the barrel notes come through more clearly; Oak, vanilla and caramel.
Sweet malty character on the tip of the tongue. Bright crystal malts shine through in the form of buttered toast, cocoa powder and brown sugar. Fruit flavors of cherry and prune juice come through mid palate along with a peppery spice from the noticeable alcohol. Barrel notes come through quickly after with deep caramel, oak and vanilla. Slight notes of bourbon come through on the finish.
M - medium, very close to full bodied. Viscous texture with a slightly watery edge. High carbonation.
This is a fantastic beer. So smooth but complex. I'd gladly buy another one to enjoy for next year.

Bottle split with my dad.
A dark brown, clear at first, with a dense, light brown head with decent retention and nice legs, this looks solid. The nose is great, as is usual for the series. Boozy caramel sweetness with vanilla, bourbon, dark fruit and brown sugar, this smells great. The palate opens full and sticky sweet with a big bourbon booziness, vanilla, mild oak tannins and fruit. Candied figs, prunes, brown sugar, jaggery are all present. Full in body with moderate carbonation, this beer has a long, sweet finish. Enjoyable.
