Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter. I had this during a BA Barleywine tasting.

This one poured a much lighter color than most of the other barleywines poured that night. There is a banana note in the smell and taste that didn't show up in the other beers. I'm getting a good amount of sweetness with a slightly fruity finish. There is a nice bourbon undertone. This one stands up well against the more sought after beers of this style.

Thanks to my buddy Chris for this.

A: Pours a cloudy amber with 2 quarters of tan head.

S: Bourbon and some sweet malt aromas.

T: Sweet malt upfront followed by light bourbon then alcohol heat. A hint of caramel and vanilla. Finish is very mild hop bitterness.

M: Medium body with good carbonation.

O: I think this bottle is a few years old and the bourbon seems to have faded a bit. Still a decent beer.
