500ml bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours the color of caramel with a slightly hazy clarity. No head, but a tight band around the borders. Nose is very barleywine-esque - lots of toffee and malt with a hint of breadiness. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of a medicinal/ethanol quality. There is also the characteristic flavors of fruitiness with a slightly medicinal bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a slightly prickly carbonation and an oily texture. Overall, I was quite surprised at all of the barleywine characteristics present in a lagered beer. Pretty amazing stuff.

A-Sampled at EBF, not sure if it was from a bottle or a keg. Pours a lighter copper color.

S-Super sweet with a pleasant dose of bourbon oak.

T-Flavor is more complex. The oak is my favorite aspect of the flavor. It's got a bunch of sweet corn starch sugar, caramel and fermented pale fruit.

M-Full bodied. Feel creamy. Alcohol is not shy by any means.

O/D-I wanted to cop a bottle of this a while back but missed the chance. Now I feel like a small sample pour doesn't do it justice, as Jack's Abby is one foamy favorites. Still, I liked it a lot.
