Not sure what was going on with this one, maybe a bad bottle.

Tons of sediment - huge chunks, looked like a sample of Mississippi water. Tried to use a sieve but didn't help much.

Aroma of a big malty barleywine, but had a lot of fruit and fruit juice flavors - peach and citrus. Wet oak, brandy, tart cherry, caramel. Very smooth - hot and boozy, very little carbonation.

Not sure what was going on with this one. Did not come together well

12oz bottle into HoTD tulip at the brewery. 2013 vintage.

A: Pours a ruddy caramel color with a faint bubbly collar for a head. The bottom of the bottle is pretty chunky, that left a ton of heavy floaters in the glass.
S:I get notes of booze soaked fruits, caramel, sweet bourbon, dates, spicy barrel, and juicy candied peaches and cherries. Very sweet overall.
T: Sweet caramel and toast, bourbon barrel, currents, leather and tobacco up front. Very smooth and integrated. I get notes of vanilla, spice, cherry, honey, and chocolate in the finish, with lingering bourbon, slight cherry, and tons of leather in the aftertaste.
M: Thick and chewy mouthfeel, slick and low carbonation, tingly and sweet. Sips very well, not hot at all.
O: Amazing flavor, great barrel character with sweet fruits. Fantastic, a real treat.

This was a supertreat! Got a big bottle from a good and well known beerfriend, Bill Young. Shared this bottle at the 2014 Borefts beerfestival in Holland. Increadibly balanced beer with real chunks of fruit in it.
