Draft. Poured a slightly opaque dark brown. Light does poss through it. Less than a finger of head that dissipated rather quickly. Smells of bourbon and barley with notes of vanilla and dried fruit. Thin in the mouth like many barleywine beers. However, smoother than expected. After taste of bourbon, barley, sugar, vanilla and dried dark fruit. Pleasantly surprised. Like it better than Firestone Walker Sucaba.

Tasted during the Mad Fox Barleywine Festival
And thought this was one of the best tasting
And most balanced which I tasted.
