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

Dark brown/ruby shade with ring of tan foam. Aroma is heavy on dark, sticky fruits, adding wisps of chocolate, smoke and a lighter-than-expected bourbon presence. Taste is brimming with sticky toffee and barrel influence. Hint of anise spiciness in the finish. Thick mouthfeel with no real trace of heat. I think I’ve had more complex barleywines, but few as delicious and easy to drink. A superb example.
