Not as viscous as I expected it had a deep deep brown color that allowed a bit of light to pierce the edge. The head foamed to a light brown cap but then collared quickly.
Brownie, raisin, chocolate, maple and coconut meet the nose as this has glimpses of a barleywine.
The flavor is all barleywine with dark fruit, raisin, chocolatey sweetness, caramel malt, toffee malt, barley and wine. Vanilla begins to form on the palate as it warms.
The feel is velvety, with a slight alcohol heat and a touch of alcohol tang. It has a nice thickness to it as well.
Very good beer but I thought I was drinking Bourbon County Barleywine the entire time, which isn't a bad thing.
