750mL bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks Matt for sharing!
(A)- Pours a deep chestnut brown color. Some minimal tan froth.
(S)- A nice richness overall. Ever so slight spice meets an excellent showing of the sweet brandy barrel.
(T)- I like the underlying sweetness from the brandy barrel in this. Some excellent leathery tobacco meets toffee and caramel. Quite nice.
(M)- A mellow carbonation level meets a nice showing of the barrel and a great barleywine base overall. Not too sweet either.
(O)- Generally, I tend to shy away from brandy barrel aged beers due to the overwhelming sweetness most of them tend to have, but this fits the style really well and uses the brandy barrel to great results.
