Had on tap. Alright, all together now! What is the kiss of death to a beer? It is watery. This is a prime example. The aromas and flavors they have going of chocolate, barley, molasses, dark fruit, and malt are undercut by the watery nature and don't get to shine a brightly. The look has watery edges and the body obviously suffers. Beef it up and you have a good barleywine, but for now it is mediocre.

I had this on tap into a tasting glass at Piece. The look is a little down, light brown that is pretty clear and gives off an oily sheen. Light tan head not much there to speak of. This beer starts to get special on the aroma. Tons of sweet bourbon which is just so nice and easy to take in. There is a little oak and vanilla, and a bw finish of hops. The taste is pretty much the same and just as awesome. Superb sweet bouron and oak with a hoppy finish. Nice warm finish on the beer but a little light. Not sure I could drink a ton of this but give me half a snifter and at 13% all will be alright.
