Thanks to rudzud for this one.

Pours a light fizzy head, murky dark copper brown color.

Nose sweet syrupy malt, caramel candy molasses, apple and dried nuts, all candied, with nice rye spicy note, etc. Touch faint whisky.

Taste starts with candy, lots of caramel toffee candy, juicy malt, little syrupy, etc, with mild sweetness and some booze warmth. Nice barrel notes, vanilla barrel, nice whisky and hot malty booze, with light fruity rye, smooth mellow with a bit of booze but not nearly 12%, little sherry like fruity boozy candy barrel, etc.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, nice fluffy carb, little booze warmth.

Overall quite nice, grassy winter beer.

Shared with JLindros and threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice clear caramel hue with a thin halo and light wisps,

S - Aromas of big toffee and caramel, sweet malts, light rye, not much whiskey at all.

T - Taste is caramel and light chocolate, loads of caramel, the rye is nice and fruity not spicy, the whiskey notes are really pleasant, sweet and mellow quite balanced instead of being spicy or assertive. Tasty.

M - Mouthfeel is pleasant, smooth, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was good, alcohol hidden well. Not what I was expecting but pleasant.

Pours a hazy, brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of liquor, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight hop, and slight rye. Fits the style of an American Barleywine. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of liquor, roasted malt, sweet malt, hops, hint of rye, and slight alcohol. Overall, good aroma, feel, body, and blend.

750ml Bottle. Aromas of whiskey, vanilla. Poured a beautiful copper color with a thick white head that lingered. Complex flavors, rich malt, pepper, vanilla, caramel, wood. Lingering finish. Far and away the best this brewery has to offer. Great job.

Brown in color with a slightly reddish tinge. A small showing of off white small tightly knit carbonation bubbles on top and a good steady show of them within the body. The aroma is mainly of whiskey,but I also get a lot of dark barley. The taste is deep with rich whiskey flavor,caramel,and oak. There's a lack of complexity for such a big brew. The fade is strongly that of whiskey,but fades quickly. You get a dryness and a warmth from the alcohol after the finish. I was hoping for more especially at that price.
