4.29/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Glows orangey gold. Opaque. Surprisingly young and light looking.

S - Honey, sponge cake, vanilla, brandy.

T - Tastes like a freshly dry-hopped english barleywine (this is my first true american barleywine). Brandy alcohol, piney toffee.

M - Resinous and syrupy. Low-medium carbonation.

O - Alcohol is quite prominent. Lacks the depth required to take it to the next level and has more of that fresh, clean IPA feel to it. Bitter toffee. Does not quite have the depth of a true sipper, yet is too bitter and boozy to do approach it in any other way.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured on tap, a flight with Bourbon County Barleywine, Big Worster and Mirror Mirror.

A: a hazy golden pour with some light cream head. It looks like an unfiltered wheat beer but with less head. Some minor lacing.

S: smells awesome!!! Best smelling of the 4 by far. Great sweet fruity and malty aromas. One of the best beers aromas out there.

T: fantastic smooth citrusy sweetness. Can't taste the booze at all.

M: moderate thickness, low carbonation and smooth and clean finish.

O: fantastic beer, I early wish I could get bottles of this.
