4.23/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: A hard pour into a large snifter produced a 2 fingered frothy yet creamy tan colored head. It displayed good retention and some lacing settling atop this deep red bodied, semi-transparent brew.
S: Loads of caramel and dark fruits, only little hints of bourbon. Good smell that lacked in complexity.
T: Follows the caramel found in the smell, but the new found complexity elevates this beer to the next level. Dark fruits were less prominent and blended nicely with the oak from the bourbon barrels.
M: Heavy, creamy, still pretty hot. Gonna hold onto my remaining bottles for later.
O: A surprisingly great Barleywine that I can see only getting better with time.
Serving type: bottle
