Bottle from Dawson's while in Maryland. First Anniversary beer so I assume this is Batch 1 of this brew. Hand numbered 289/500. Pours hay dark amber colored with a creamy bubbly off white head. Ara of honey, toffee, hard candies, vanilla and bourbon, a bit of lemon peel, oak, smells very sweet. Flavor follows very sweet with honey, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, light citrus, caramel. Rich body but not super heavy, medium carbonation. While I prefer a bit more rich caramel malt and oak, this is a nice BA barleywine that's worth grabbing if you see it.
