2014, bomber poured into tulip glass

A-pours a rich dark black that fills the glass like oil. Small off white head that dissipates very quickly into an outer lace.

S- tons of bourbon, rich, malty, sweet and hot. Some dark fruit . Overall it is a very sweet hot smell.

T- bourbon first, then a blend of sugar and vanilla. There's a sweet taste of berries but I can't pick up on which one. There also might be some cherries in there.

M- full bodied, thick, hot and creamy!

O-one of my top barleywines. It rivals king henry and bcbbw in my opinion. The heat keeps it from being perfect but I will definitely seek these out in the future.
