4.11/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #66 of 115.

Appearance - Hazy red. Murky without much of a head. Wispy surface. Chunky collar.

Smell - Grapefruit, little bit of whiskey. Very fruit aroma. Caramel and vanilla.

Taste - Much better barrel in the taste than the nose. Whiskey never dominant, but more present. Vanilla comes through more than whiskey. Lots of caramel and fruits.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, medium body. No booze.

Overall - Great barleywine, just like the others. Not the best barrel character, but it's definitely a welcome addition to the beer.

Serving type: bottle

Thanks to JustXBeer for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Bottle # 93/115.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, fruit, and bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, fruit, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice fruit and bourbon combo that is better in the aroma.
