Had as part of the "Reserve Flight" at the Bruery Provisions for its Firestone Walker tap takeover. Poured in a 2oz taster. Reviewed from notes.
A- Nut brown color, no head which I can ascribe to the ABV. Has nice clarity.
S- Maltiness, booze, caramel and toffee. Warm smell and more pleasing than most Barleywines I have had.
T- Smooth malty flavor with a brandy flavor and nice toffee and toasty notes. Wonderful feel, and something to get drunk off of.
M- Vinous and thin. Dry feel.
O- Great beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Nice color with a slight lacing.
Smell is oak and alcohol might be the weakest link here.
Taste oak is there, blending in very nicely with the high abv. Vanilla with light fruity taste.
Overall : English Barleywine where ya been all my life?
My first English Barleywine won't be my last. What difference does it matter what I say it is a limited production run so if you get your hands on a bottle do yourself a favor.
Overall a great beer I would put this on par with some of the finest Scotch Whiskys.
Very complex there is a whole lot going on in this bottle.
