750ml. I think this is a 2013 bottle.
A: Pours a monstrously thick mahogany with reddish hues and a small off-white head.
S: Aroma brings thick raisins, citrus pith, caramel, figs. Smells of sweet overripe dark fruit.
T: Taste brings more fig, mild tannic bourbon, orange peel and a bit of lingering leafy hoppiness, dense cooked sugar, molasses, maple.
M: Thick-bodied, very viscous, light carbonation.
O: This is a very good BA barleywine that retains some hoppiness and isn't very barrel-forward. Certainly a bruiser but more restrained than I was expecting.
