4.6/5  rDev +8.2%

on-tap at the Brew Kettle - 3/19/06

A: Served in a snifter, the brew was a murky brown color and left lots of fine lacing.

S: Big complex nose with both fruity and floral aromas

T: This is perhaps one of the best balanced barleywines that I've had, and the characteristic flavors of the malt and hops are both allowed to shine through and coexist. The bourbon barrel gives it a deliciously subtle spicy and earthy character.

M: Full bodied, thick, and smooth with subtle carbonation

D: This is definitely one of the best barleywines that I've had, and the well-hidden 10.5% ABV makes this one dangerously drinkable.

2007 vintage courtesy of the sweet heavens. Pours brown-ish copper with off white to tan head. The aroma is crystal malts, maybe a hint of bourbon and oak, some caramel and notes of pine hops. The taste hits first with a combination of muted stunted pine hop flavor and bitterness and then crystal malts. Beyond that I get mild bourbon notes that ride into the finish on an oak constructed horse. The age has made this mellower than it must have been when fresh.
