2011 bottle, shared by Boatshoes.
A - Decent clarity. A dark cola brown, quite dark actually for the style. I imagine that's the barrel talking. Cream colored head with a nice ring of bubbles around the edges of the glass.
S - Very sweet, boozy, lots of vanilla and heavy char off the oak barrel. Chocolate is there too.
T - Smooth char and dry oak. Mild vanilla and quite malty. I'd have preferred more hoppiness in a barleywine, even in spite of the barrel. Mild coffee flavors on the finish.
M/O - Extremely smooth, low carbonation. Finishes hot, deep in the throat - but this is more residual rather than immediate.
A nice beer, but compared to the other BA offerings from Firestone Walker this was nowhere near as complex or enjoyable.
