Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip-wine glass. Split between my uncle and me.
A: Pours a lovely ruby-mahogany color. There is a light tan head which quickly fades to nothing. No lacing.
S: Smells very sweet. Raisin and fig are prominent. Maybe even a little bit of prune. Toffee is also strong with a touch of oak and vanilla.
T: Oak and vanilla are prominent, but followed very closely in intensity by the fruit flavors. Raisin and fig are very potent flavors here. The oak provides a little bit of smokiness. A hint of bourbon comes through mostly in the aftertaste, providing a little bit of alcohol heat. A mild bite of pine gives some bitterness that cuts the sweetness and complements the alcohol.
M: Medium-thick and very sticky. Next to no carbonation.
O: Nice barley wine. Very sweet, almost reminiscent of a doppelbock. Potent flavors but it could have more depth.
Serving type: bottle
