look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours with a nice tan head. Smell is chocolate, cherry, a good deal of alcohol heat that's worse as it warms. Good chocolate but needs more roasted malt presence and bitterness (granted, this is older and hops have faded I'm sure) to balance. Decently creamy feel but the strong alcohol presence keeps this down.

Pours a silky pitch black with some dark brown head initially. Head quickly dissipates and leaves a small amount of lacing. The nose features some nice creamy vanilla chocolate interplay with a slight emphasis on the roast. The barrel is mellow but definitely present. The taste starts smooth and creamy with chocolate and vanilla notes, this then gives way to a bit of astrigency and heat from the barrel. Mouthfeel is appropriate for style with moderate carbonation. Overall, quite a bit better than the BA barleywine that was released alongside this and worth a try.
