look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a: This was a clear, dark amber color. It poured with a large, long lasting fizzy cap.

s: Sugary candy, vanilla, wood, booze and leafy hops all pretty well incorporated.

t: Sweet up front, caramelized sugar, faint fruit and boozy vanilla. This all blends surprisingly well with the still strong grassy hop bite. There is a slightly too strong lingering boozy bitterness.

m: Silky overalll, but maybe a little over carbonated.

o: I really liked this one but I wonder if some time in the cellar could have made it even better.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a gorgeous, clear copper/amber with a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thick halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Actually not much in the aroma, either that or I’m congested. I get some malt, maybe some caramel, and some alcohol, but not much else

Taste: Wow! What’s lacking in aroma is more than made up for in the taste! It’s very boozy up front, which makes sense, being a barley wine aged in bourbon barrels, but once the alcohol fades, I get malty notes of bread and cereal, followed by some sweet notes of vanilla, caramel. The beer finishes with some more alcohol and slight hints of earthy bourbon. Outstanding!!

Mouthfeel: Very chewy, with some very little carbonation. With an ABV of 10.6%, there’s quite a pronounced and enjoyable level of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is an excellent barley wine!! I really like the pronounced malty presence, mixed with the boozy alcohol. I just wish it had more of an aroma. Regardless, I’m definitely getting some more of this!!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Crystal clear pour that is orange brown in color. About a finger of white head builds up but fizzes away quickly. Basically nothing is left after a minute or so. 4

S: The bourbon is huge, but there's also a tropical juiciness underneath. The booze is in your face, but balanced somewhat by a caramel sweetness. 4

T: It's much like an IPA, which is amazing considering this was aged in bourbon barrels. It's tropical and hoppy, but doesn't skimp on the alcohol. The bourbon plays a role with caramel sweetness and some vanilla. The finish is all about the barrel. 4

MF: The body is light and carbonated well. The alcohol and sweetness does hit the drinkability a bit, but it is delicious. 3.5

O: This was an interesting beer and it turned out to be much hoppier than I expected. The sweetness and alcohol got to me by the end of the first glass. I would recommend it to anyone who likes tropical IPAs and bourbon. 3.5
