3.63/5 rDev -9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
On tap at Sebago's "end of era" party. 12oz pour:
A: Dark brown with about a half-inch of off-white froth.
S: Bourbon, oak/vanilla, toasted malts, touch of floral and slightly citrus hops. hint of caramel sweetness.
T: Big bourbon character up front with the oak and vanilla. A good bit of alcohol burn and taste. Toasted grains come in behind it with just a touch of caramel sweetness. Finish is remotely hoppy. Not bad, but not enough malt or sweetness.
M: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Not that smooth but does have just a little creaminess to it. A bit too much alcohol burn on the finish.
O: Not a bad barrel aged barleywine, but the malt base needs to be bigger and sweeter. It tastes more like an old ale (light toasted malts) that forgot the caramel.
Serving type: on-tap

From my notes at the End of an Era event at Sebago on Middle St. tonight:
Deep ruby, mahogany marbled. Head settles to nothing. Smell is pure vanilla & bourbon, more so in the taste. Sweet, malty, chocolate nibs, dry finish. Tastes like a scotch as it warms. More vanilla bean. Alcohol aftertast as it warms. Rich, syrupy, though not too thick. Delicious alcohol sting.
Serving type: bottle
