An 8 oz. snifter at Hay Merchant on 7/25/2013.

Deep brown with a small head. Dried fruit and vanilla aroma. Similar in flavor to the Highlander but with considerably less sugar. Tastes more as if it has been aged in bourbon barrels than French oak. Mild sweetness with noticeable vanilla characteristics. Surprisingly dry for 11.5 ABV. Medium-light bodied. Exceptionally smooth for a relatively young barleywine.
