I've had the beer for a week or so and finally settled in to a glass yesterday. Shared with some family and all were totally blown away. If its this good now then how good will it be after it ages a little. Holy Cow!

I was so lucky to procure this where I am...thank you Suzy, 'cuz this stuff is divine... Candyish with a balanced but strong hoppy finish. Slightly floral with a hint of anise...loved it...

4.42/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy ruby red color. No head.

Smell: Smells of caramel brown sugar cherries dates dark fruits and booze.

Taste - Taste mirrors the nose. Great fruity taste with just a touch of booze. Not overpowering like some BBA barleywines.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel.

Overall: Amazing amazing stuff. Great Bourbon Barrel barleywine and one of my favorite BHB beers.

4.42/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Served up a deep, rust-colored brown body with a slim, bubbly, bone white head.

Smell: Heavy, intoxicating (I can fully confirm this) nose of, well, bourbon, brown sugar, caramel sauce, toasted bread, faint vanilla sugar, middling fruitiness, and more bourbon. I approve.

Taste: Nails the tongue with a wallop of rich, malty sweetness. Carrying over from the nose is the brown sugar, caramel, but also honey and almond syrup over a moderately toasty malt base. Faint raisin. Then, a wash and wave of bourbon that, when considering the sweetness, has a bottled bourbon glaze quality. Sweet, succulent finish with lingering typos, drunk dialing, and stupors.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: An impeccable brew that should be considered a full meal by itself. It makes for a great midday pick-me-up. Friends, you'll be ready to hit the ground running after a few ounces of this.

Barrel is present but not overpowering (as is typical of BBBW in my experience). Has a hoppy bite to it which seems to come and go between sips. A very solid BBBW which fares very well when compared to my standard baseline from Central Waters. Higher ABV than most but hides it quite well.

Sweet and hoppy. Loads of burnt candy flavors with a hoppy finish. Boozy but no barrel. Maybe needed more time in the barrel. Definitely would enjoy this on a cold night. Overall a solid barleywine but needs more barrel.
