4.25/5 rDev -6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Deep Brown with a little hint of red in there. Fairly good clarity. When poured a head didn't have much chance at survival.
S: Rich, Bourbon, Sweet, Malty, not much hops
T: This was my first real experience with a barley wine that isn't hoppy. I was hopping for something that had a backbone to back up the sweet, boosy, bourbon barrel aged flavor. Not the case with this one. Tasted a lot like a bourbon BA stout. Maybe this is just my vigrin taste buds to this style, but I thought it could have had a little more hop presence to round it out and still remain in the bounderies of English Barleywine.
M: Thick, Smooth, low carbonation
O: Great beer. Had a hard time finishing the whole bottle even with the help of a friend. I want to try it again and this time with an open mind and with a better idea of what to expect.

22oz bomber of the 2014 vintage, enjoyed from a snifter
A: an inky shade of plum with a light, soapy whitish head
S: delicious aromas of mellow bourbon, caramel, thick brown sugar, vanilla, and booze-soaked cherries or figs
T: the dominant flavor was burnt brown sugar and vanilla-bourbon sweetness. there's also a bit of tart dark cherry flavor and chocolate-covered coconut shavings. the finish had some light char and tobacco notes. this beer gets nice and boozy as it came to room temperature.
M: vinous and lightly syrupy, with some resin and heat on the finish. nice, but a bit lacking; i would've liked it a bit thicker and creamier.
O: an outstanding BA barleywine. aroma is top-notch and flavors are delightful, but mouthfeel left a bit to be desired.
