4.13/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Split with JLindros and Duffy.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown mahogany hue and a thin head that leaves a light halo.

S - Aromas of coffee and only coffee really. Light espresso, faint bourbon, but yeah espresso bomb.

T - not quite add bourbon as the base beer, lotsxof coffee, light bourbon notes, sweet malts, gentle bitter astringent notes the finish, not quite as boozy.

M - Mouthfeel is not quite as boozy and heavy as the base.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer but the coffee kind of took away from the base barleywine too much, still a tasty beer.
