Really interesting and hopefully delicious beer thanks to furealz, 2013 vintage.

Pours a nice creamy semi thick 1/2 finger off white head that fades pretty slowly, nice lacing too and good legs coming down the sides, dark mahogany reddish brown beer with faint hints of ruby light sneaking through the edges.

Nose is very nice, great bourbon right out front, sweet candy bourbon and vanilla barrel, into big sweet malts, barleywine like big sweet malts, candy malts, toffee, caramel, molasses candy, and a nice big spicy rye with that as well, and a little rye syrup like aroma, as well as mild dark raisiny fruits, vanilla creams, and lots of great aromas.

Taste is delicious as well, sweet candy out front but not too sweet, little syrupy as well, with nice caramel, molasses candy, lots of toffee and a little candy caramel creams, mild nuttiness as well, and not too syrupy either. Some spicy fruity rye flavors as well, nice rye component overall and pretty strong without being over bearing. Mild bourbon, the bourbon came through more on the aroma than flavor but still there, little sweet candy bourbon and mild barrel notes. The booze starts to come through noticeably, with some warmth and mild tingle, and but balanced nicely with the fair sweetness, and a nice big fluffy nougat center. Hint of raisin like dark fruit flavor. Finish is a little sweet still but not sticky or syrupy surprisingly, bit more booze warmth, some spicy rye flavor lingering as well as more dark fig like fruit and more toffee and caramel candy.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, mild syrupy, fair booze warmth and little tingle, decent to lighter carb.

Overall pretty good, nice barrel notes and bourbon but wish the bourbon came through more on the flavor, nice sweet flavors with the toffee, caramel, molasses candy, etc, and the rye came through quite nice without being overbearing. Pretty tasty.
