Served in a an Elysian tulip.
A: Poured a bright, ruby red, fairly clear, and with a slight beige head. Looked very much its non-BA counterpart.
S: Nice, silky, coconuty, bourbon quality, with more than a hint of vanilla. Really nice.
T: Ha! It's so great that even though this is a thick, rich, bourbon-laced brew, I can still detect Victory's signature profile: yeasty, CO2 goodness!
M: Sweet, but not too, the carbonation was nice and low, and the hop component was VERY subdued. This was almost an English BW.
O: Definitely a keeper and well worth the $12.99 price tag.

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.

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!
