4.5/5 rDev +1.6%
Dark and opaque mohagany. Mostly brown with the reddish hue showing up around the edges. Slight and brief sandy colored head.
Strong woodsy smell, like fresh cut oak, even a little cedar. Vanilla and coffee. Tobacco.
This is a 2013 vintage and still came strong with the big burn of booze. Oak, vanilla, butterscotch, coffee, leather.
Full and smooth mouthfeel with a boozy finish. Slightly dry on the back end.
A fantastic beer. Listed as an old ale but tastes like a top notch barreled barleywine.

22oz bottle of the 2012 vintage thanks to a trading buddy. Dark borwn color, short head. Smells pretty nice, bourbon, booze, wood. Flavor is pretty good too, heavily bourbon influenced, boozy, oak, vanilla, not bad at all. If I had to guess blindfolded I would have said this was a bourbon barrel aged barleywine.
