4.2/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Opaque caramel/orange hue with no head despite a vigorous pour. Some visible sediment as well.
Aroma: Decently complex with dried fig, apricot, raison, burnt caramel, vanilla, and hints of alcohol.
Taste: HUGE flavor. Great concentrated peach juice flavor that adds a nice sweetness to the whole palate. Underneath that syrupy flavor there is a lot of caramel malt and some other nice dried fruit flavors. Surprisingly no alcohol in the taste but just a little heat on the end. Hugely robust throughout. Not getting as much of the bourbon barrel character as I had anticipated but I would attribute the smoothness of this brew to the aging process.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a decent amount of carbonation (maybe bottled conditioned?). Average drinkability.
Final Thoughts: A very enjoyable Barleywine with a lot of great flavors to love and definitely for someone with a bit of a sweet tooth. Would I drink it again? Sure.
Serving type: bottle
