22 oz. bottle, no bottled on date present. 2015 vintage. "Barrel Aged Barleywine Style Ale" My first new one from Begyle Brewing in quite a while. My first barrel-aged offering from these guys.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a milky caramel, appears a dark burnt sienna orange in the glass. It pours flat and conjures hardly any head to speak of, merely some bubbles that die out to a ring. Some mild sticky spotty lacing. Appears sticky. Second pour yields nearly a finger of bubbly khaki head that dies out again quickly. Much darker and browner in body the second time around.

S - The aroma is hot & boozy. Lots of alcohol fumes emitting from this one. Lots of wood, caramel, & toffee.

T - Not nearly as boozy as the nose implies. Tons and tons of sweetened sugary toffee, caramel, rum raisin, oak wood, vanilla, mild alcohol fumes. Extremely sweet, definitely a dessert beer.

M - The feel is silky smooth & creamy. Full-bodied with low carbonation. Not exactly what I would describe as syrupy, but definitely sugary and weighty.

Overall, a very interesting first barrel-aged barleywine from Begyle. Definitely look forward to trying more barrel-aged offerings from these guys. Keep up the good work.
