4.48/5 rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Thin, 1/2 finger cream head, quickly dissipating. Brew is a dark burgundy, nearly black, and glowing.
Very little on the nose, other than vanilla. It's an incredibly subtle aroma; even as it warms, just a bit of bourbon comes through, and maybe a hint of coconut and chocolate.
Incredible panoply of flavors immediately assaults the palate: toasted coconut, vanilla, and fried banana. Bourbon and oak are firmly in the background. Plenty of caramel and molasses, as well. Some chocolate.
Very noticeable sting, but not too much heat. Medium overall feel.
This is an incredibly complex beer that hits you with multiple flavors from first sip, and continues until the glass is empty. Absolutely fantastic.
Serving type: on-tap

Very hard to pinpoint.
Pours a caramel color beer, dark. I don't remember any carbonation, maybe a light foam around the edges of the glass. I smelled some oak, some brandy, but all very faint, and the beer doesn't really lead you anywhere. Taste reveals a sweet barleywine, very light, not heady, not strong, but very tasty. Not many notes picked up. Body is medium, not a light bodied beer.

4.45/5 rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Sixty degrees out and rainy and it's Barleywine time in the middle of an Oklahoma July.
The tan head is thin and fleeting. Color is dark brown, near black.
Fresh baked brown bread wafts to the nose, followed by cherry, burnt sugar, subtle caramel and some rye way off yonder.
Tastes of sweet bread, more cherries, allspice and caramel. Has a bitterness that is hard to discern, but it's there. Leaves a nice coating of syrup on the lips.
You could call this delicate if it weren't for the bold, lingering, fusel alcohol. You could also call-it dessert-like, and on that count you would be completely correct.
I recommend opening this one for an occasion. It is that good.
