look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

22 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter.

Appearance: Dark red, amber color with some ruby on the edges, a vanilla colored head that dissipates pretty quickly. Head is gone within a few minutes after the pour, no lacing. Looks beautiful in the glass, fairly clear.

Smell: Very sweet aroma, coconut, some toffee, not a lot of alcohol on the nose.

Taste: Nearly same as smell, getting some alcohol on the flavor, nice sweet coconut, the bourbon is not as prevalent as the other flavors, very smooth, the flavors flow really well.

Mouthfeel: Little to no carbonation, not very thick, some heat on the tongue from the alcohol.

Overall: Another winner from Firestone's barrel program. First time having this and will definitely pick up in the future. A world class beer, worth a try.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: dark garnet to a mahogany. A finger of a tan head that fades slowly leaves a strong lacing. Pretty dark and almost opaque. Strong brightness with the light.

Smell: toffee and maple sweetness followed by bourbon and a little bit of oak. Some alcohol.

Taste: strong bourbon, oak, and alcohol taste. Underlying layer is full of malts, from toffee to nutty and maple.

Mouthfeel: medium to heavy. A little on the dry side. Some alcohol warmth.

Overall: ehhh. I think the bourbon English barley wine has a lot more potential. The bourbon seems to clash with the malts rather than adding to. I think it would be a little better with some age though
