750 ml bottle # 1634 of 3240
purchased at total wine.
drank from a chilled goblet rogue barley wine glass.
sound: the fun pop of a cork that we so rarely hear as beer drinkers
sight: this beer has a cloudy brownish red look with an off white head. other reviewers complained of an abundance of head which i didnt experience, maybe because of the specialized glass? beautiful cascade lacing on my glass
mouth feel: light feel, not thick at all, if anything, a little too thin.
smell: bourbon with a hint of something i couldnt detect, but it was magical.
taste: this tastes, to me, like what a barley wine should taste like. i tasted vanilla and oak along with the brisk crisp flavor or fruit.
review: this barley wine is pretty legit. as with most barley wines, by the time i get thru half the bottle i've got angels dancing behind my eyeballs, which is very pleasing. this beer, as with most good beers, reminds me of times in my past which were fun and memorable. if anyone is on the fence about trying it, i would say go for it, you;ve got nothing to lose. if they have more at total wine, i will probably buy teo bottles. one to drink, and one to stick way back in the back of the pantry for about a year to see how it goes later on. enjoy!
