10/18/2014. On draft at Chuck's 85th as part of a 4-Ballast Point beer sampler. Thick and dark, modest amount of off-white head, not much lace. Beer holds its own against the glass. Aroma is caramel, molasses, some herbal notes, a little musty (barrel?). Fairly sweet, with a hint of the bitter from the hops and some spiciness from the alcohol. Body is not as heavy as I would expect for a barleywine, oily, light carbonation, medium-long finish. Overall, very enjoyable for the last beer of the evening, fortunately just samplers or I would be in trouble.

On-tap at Ballast Point's Old Grove location. Poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a murky brown color, thin brown head, spotty lacing.

S- Very bourbon forward, lots of bourbon, wood, and a hint of vanilla, also getting some caramel and dark fruit.

T- Follows the nose, lots of bourbon and wood up front, follows with lots of sweet toffee, burnt caramel and dark fruit, quite sweet and boozy overall.

M- Full-bodied, smooth feel, moderate booziness and lingering sweetness.

O- A pretty good barleywine, I had a small pour and was satisfied, probably not my favorite offering from Ballast Point.
