Pouted from a 22 oz bomber into a Zwak glass. Thanks Keith for hooking me up with this!
Appearance - pours a hazy maroon-amber body with a thick off white head that reduces quickly to leave no lacing or retention. Some settling
Smell - tons of vanilla, toffee, butterscotch, cookie dough, some bourbon, caramel, honey, molasses. Sweet and inviting.
Taste - upfront I get molasses and vanilla, butterscotch, bourbon, the follow through has some coffee and roastyness. The finish is sugar cookies, very sweet and syrupy. Not much alcohol detected at all.
Mouthfeel - medium - heavy body, low carbonation
What an outstanding representation of a barleywine - complex, balanced, and sip demanding. The bourbon barrels really add tons of flavor to this beer. Seek it out.
