2016 release.

Whoa. Big chewy toffee mixed with cigar tobacco and a tall pour of smoky bourbon with faint notes of maple in the finish. My mistake was not bringing more back to the east coast. Perfect.

Vintage 2017.
Bourbon aroma is dominant with burnt sugar and figs. The flavor follows with caramel, dates, toffee and bourbon heat on the finish. Full texture with low carbonation. Outstanding.

The beer pours out a dark mahogany/brown color, with 1 finger of fast disipating dark khaki colored head------------- the aromas are of fudge, whiskey, dark fruits, sweet chocolate covered raisins, Carmel and brown sugar------------- the flavors are of chocolate covered cherries, brown sugar, tart dark fruits, Carmel, molasses, vanilla and toffee, this beer has a thick & creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish------------- overall this beer was amazing, so much Carmel, toffee and dark fruit flavors, and for being 14% it was dangerously smooth-

Reviewed on 12/10/16, from notes
2015 bottle
L - This pours a dark caramel, almost burgundy color. Has about a one finger mocha head.
S - I get notes of brown sugar, candied dark fruits , smoke, oak, and bourbon. This is not tart or boozy at all.
T - The flavors are barleywine tang through and through. I love that! There is plenty of vanilla and chocolate in the middle. Finishes with a tangy oak, lots of milk chocolate sweetness. But, not sugary sweet like BCBBW.
F - This is super smooth and very well blended. Just a little dry on the finish.
O - Yes, it does have year on it. However, overall very drinkable. Well balanced, smooth, and masks the alcohol very well.

Black as the starless night. Illuminated by the lightning strikes of aftertaste. In a rough sea of malty deliciousness shines the mother of all storms.
