Poured into a little(r) cup with one finger of head on a deep copper colored body.
The smell is faint; mild grain and bread. I was hoping for a little more.
The taste is nice with barnyard sweetness and mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
A solid barleywine and enjoyable.

Serving Type- On tap poured into a Tulip Glass

Appearance- A beautiful off read color, little head, pretty strong alcohol legs considering this was not the normal Auld Bitch THIS was the Bourbon Barrel Aged version...

Smell- Sweet malts, dark fruits, sweet smell, tons of bourbon notes, some vanilla on the back end...

Taste- Tons of booze considering its 12% ABV, smooth, dark candied fruit, vanilla, bourbon notes, sweet malts,

Mouth feel- Smooth, a almost scotch like sipping beer, great beer for winter

Overall- One of the best Bourbon Barrel Aged Barley-wines I have ever had... a super solid beer and I cant wait to have it again

Nice dark pour. Heavy bourbon smell. Slightly sour aroma. Very strong flavor. Lots of bourbon and chocolate flavors. Very good.
