Appearance is a cloudy, muddy brownish-copper with a thin layer of head. The nose is quite complex, containing nutty, caramel, malty and maple notes. The dominant flavor is sweet maltiness with a subtle but clear hint of bourbon from the barrel-aging process. This is certainly a hearty offering, but it remains quite drinkable in spite of its full-bodied nature.
Excellent effort from a great brewery – maybe the best barleywine I have ever sampled.
Serving type: on-tap
