The nose starts fruity, not what I expected from a barleywine-like malt beverage. Apricots and oranges touch the nose with a creamy Pina Colada tropical scent. Hints of bourbon and oak accompany barley and liquor.

The flavor is a bit boozy but it's easy to distinguish the fruitiness. Apricot prevails with a bit of orange. The coconut of the barrel comes across the palate as a Pina Colada. Light bourbon and oak mix with barley grain and wine like alcohols. Hints of caramel and toffee come near the finish.

Overall, this is a bit unorthodox but exceedingly interesting and decadently different.
