A huge thanks to pauljrinaldijr for sending over this long time want as an extra in a trade, world class beer advocate right there!


A: Pours a very hazy muddy brown with just over 1 fingers width of light tan head, which has decent retention before dissipating down. Leaves essentially no lacing but some alcohol legs. 4.25

S: Huge nose, lots of sweetness including a big toffee/caramel character, some dark fruits, candied sugar, vinous notes. There are also some pleasant faded hop characters. Barrel notes aren’t strong, but are noticeable, with a charred oak and subtle bourbon booze. 4.5

T: Pretty big barrel notes right off the bat, with bourbony vanilla and charred oak. Burnt sugar, toffee, bitterness. There an almost anise like licorice character. Aftertaste of oaky bourbon and burnt sugar lingers for ever after each sip. 4.5

M/D: Medium bodied, carbonation appropriate, a bit thin considering its such a big beer, ABV is noticeable, but drinkability remains excellent. 4.25

O: Wonderful beer. So glad I finally got to try it. Easily in the top handful of American Barleywines I have ever had. Thanks again Paul for hooking me up! 4.5

Was excited to try this for a while, it did not perform. Taste and smell very offensive to me and highly barrel forward. Could not finish mine.
