Had this on tap a few times in Phoenix at Taste of Tops. Made regularly per my discussion with the brewers, but hard for me to find back in Austin. This melds some of my favorites things under one umbrella...barleywine, sours, bourbon/whiskey barrel-aged ales. Delicious. Incredibly unique, but polarizing.

Served in a tasting glass at Ale Arsenal.
A: Darkest chestnut, barely translucent. Good lacing.
S: Mmmm. Tart cherries and huge butterscotch with hints of vanilla. Obvious bourbon barrels. Yummy.
T: Interesting! Predominantly tart, with intriguing undercurrents of bourbon and butterscotch. Aftertaste is clean, but yeasty.
M: Thin, and lightly sour.
O: A good, interesting beer that I would not want to drink all the time, but is fun. Good vanilla. Nice mix of sour and sweet. The former wins by a hair.

Dark red-brown. Foamy residue on top.
Strong whiskey note complemented by a turned tartness. Lots of bourbon corn sweetness, butteriness, milk chocolate, creaminess, dark fruits, and caramel. Not bad.
Somewhat sour with infected notes. An accident that almost works. Some lingering vanilla and oak get pumped up by a prominent bourbon note. The sourness tones down the buttery sweetness and the caramel quite a bit. Sherry notes. Tannic apple skins, maybe grape, raisin, and toffee. Woodiness is pretty nice, because it's noticeable but not over-the-top; just another element of the beer.
Drinks with a a thick, viscous body. A lot of texture, too, that I don't necessarily like. Carbonation is okay, though.
A good sour barleywine. I don't like the approach, but I like the result.
