750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a clear reddish mahogany amber color. Minimal off-white froth.

(S)- A lightly citrus hop note meets a caramel/toffee/fig oaky booze sweetness. Slightly floral to me.

(T)- Again, fairly hoppy with hints at some floral citrus meets oaky bourbon and caramel toffee sweetness.

(M)- Fairly sweet and boozy with that oaky hoppy kick. Its balance is fine, though that slight floral aspect throws it off a bit style-wise for me; definitely not a character you would expect in a barrel aged barleywine.

(O)- Not too shabby. If I had to guess, I think (hope) this will benefit from some extended bottle aging.

Serving type: bottle

I usually don't go for bourbon barrel aged beers in the summer but my boss bought this one for me and I never turn down a beer. Its very rich and has a great smell to it. I get notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. It's taste is very creamy with a strong vanilla and oaky flavor. Pretty standard compared to other stouts I've had that were aged in bourbon barrels but its still good!

Serving type: growler
