Review 200. I've been saving the notes for this one for my 200th review. Poured from a bomber into a snifter.
A Pours a dark red that is topped off with a 2 finger off white head.
S Lots of bourbon, vanilla, and alcohol accompanied by notes of raisins, caramel, and toffee. Very sweet with a lot going on.
T Starts with a strong bourbon flavor followed by vanilla, rumsoaked fruit then finishes with a strong caramel flavor. The 12.5% is virtually unnoticeable.
M Nice thick full body with a good amount of carbonation. Excellent for a barley wine.
Overall this is an amazing barley wine and one of my favorite beers regardless of style.

Pours muddy and with no head. Looks still. Smell is dark fruit, vanilla, and soy sauce in a this Chinese restaurant uses way too much sauce, kind of way. Taste is sweet and dark fruits and soy sauce with a quick finish. At least the booze is hidden very well, but with the lack of almost any carbonation, cloying nature of it and the soy sauce flavor, it was a big disappointment.

2012 vintage poured from a bottle to Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
The color was great. Dark but a little burgundy showing in the light
Smell was bourbon and typical barley wine. Maybe a little oxidation, but smelled so damn good!
Taste was amazing. I don't even know if I can describe it. If you've had bourbon county barley wine, think a step above. It that damn good
Overall, I'd drink it again, and again, and again
