look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to cfrances33.

Appearance: Dark amber/orange with a nice 2" head that recedes to nice cap, healthy lacing.

Smell: Bourbon soaked caramel and toffee.

Taste: All of whats good in a barleywine, caramel and toffee soaked with a tinge of bourbon. Oaky vanilla from the barrel weaves itself throughout the beer providing an accent to the malty base. Rich candied flavor. The alcohol is present in both heat and bourbon flavor.

Mouthfeel: Warm on the palate but still smooth.

Overall: Excellent example of a BA Barelywine a rich tapestry of flavor.
