Pours a reddish amber with moderate clarity. Fizzy head upon pour which fizzles out quickly with no head retention. The nose is big and malty with heavy notes of raisin, dark fruit, molasses, bread. The barrel supports these notes and brings in some marshmallow, vanilla, and charred oak. The taste is nice developed barrel notes with hints of vanilla, oak, and maple. Plenty of malt character which has a tamed sweetness. This guy is well balanced. Mouthfeel is big with low carbonation. Overall, a nice surprise. I enjoyed this more than the non barreled version.

22oz bottle. 2013 Vintage (obviously). Pours a murky dark copperish color with a thin layer of head. Some lacing. The aroma is boozey and malty with some dark fruits, earth, caramel, and butterscotch. The taste is the bourbon followed up by caramel, butterscotch and malts. Dark fruits and earth as well. Booze and butterscotch at the finish. Slightly woody. Medium bodied. Overall, this is a really solid Bourbon Barrel aged Barleywine that can hold its own against some of the more well known ones. Worth seeking out.
