Served from a 750ml C&C Bottle. Thanks to JTMiller03!

A-Murky amber brown with a nice off white head, minimal retention and lacing

S-Sweet caramel malts, molasses, bourbon, oak and some deeply ripe dark fruit. Really nice

T-Subtle notes of caramel and molasses play well with the boozy bourbon/vanilla and oak. Some cereal grains and dark fruits are in the background

M-creamy and viscous

O-This comes across as an English Barleywine that spent some time in a barrel more than a brown ale. Beautifully balanced and integrated while remaining somewhat assertive. A real treat (580 characters)

A

750ml into a tulip. Pours a deep ruddy opaque walnut, an encouraging pour needed to rise a middln mocha colored head, minor lacing.

The aroma in general is restrained, the whiskey is not front and centered rather the vanilla wood with molasses and roasted brown sugar.

The flavor does not share the restraint of the scent - the bourbon, although still restrained is now a shy star backed by the molasses, hint of anise and bittersweet dark roasted chocolate. The alcohol is a deserving flavor component, strong and pungent but not solvent, a welcoming warmth. Little in the way of bitter, only the bitter of a semi sweet chocolate chip morsel. Full bodied appropriate lifeless mouthfeel. Warms wonderfully. Aftertaste till tomorrow.
delicious, rich and satisfying
the last taste is the best taste
Krebs, OK - who knew !
the brewers have again demonstrated a competence that is exciting
qualifies as an english barleywine
cheers
