Candy brown-red. Soapy ring formed and stuck around. Looks decent.

Marshmallow, bourbon, raisin, caramel, herbal hoppiness, and a hint of cola. Not as fruity as I might have expected, but there are notes of other dark fruits and very light cherry.

Big bourbon notes with rich malty caramel, booze, raisin, honey, earthy/herbal hops, and some marshmallow. Tasty as hell for bourbon lovers. Major whiskey notes, and they're impressive. Some latent barley grain notes. Solid bitterness at the middle's end that I respect.

Drinks hot and slick. Dry bitterness combines well on the palate with the sweeter mouthfeel. Wish it could be mellowed out a notch.

Awesome barleywine. A bourbon-forward example with a nice base beer, to boot. Recommended.

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!
