Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Bottled 9/13/13. Bottle # 051.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with brown sugar, toffee, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a fantastic bourbon presence all around.

Many thanks to Shilt for sharing this bottle!

A: rich toffee brown, uniform cloudiness, slight creamy head along sides of glass

S: Best part of the beer. Vanilla, caramel, toffee, lots of Pappy bourbon barrel. A tinge of heat but pretty perfect.

T: Follows the smell very well-lots of vanilla, butterscotch, caramel. Pappy taste tingles the tongue throughout, especially on the tail end. The hotness is the only slight on the taste. It will likely mellow in a few months but then the Pappy taste will likely fade as well, which would be sad. Really awesome.

M: rich creamy goodness. It is a bit thin, more like a bourbon mouthfeel than a barleywine mouthfeel. However, this is the only drawback which is not much of a drawback at all.

O: Right up there w King Henry and BA Church on a Hill. I think it is below those but only slightly. Voodoo is doing great things, keep up the good work.

The Mayor of Richmond goes to Washington. And he brings the pain. Thanks, Sam!

A. Pours a chestnut brown with a finger of khaki head. Big oily legs and thick lacing on the glass.

S. Cherry, fig, dates, raisins, vanilla, fudge. Beautiful bouquet. A lot of complexity and strong barrel notes.

T. Lots of vanilla, some chocolate notes, stone fruit, caramel. Bourbon is very much present and even a little dominant right now.

M. A little hot right now. But there is an amazing blend and balance on the other flavors.

O. A great barrel aged barleywine. Pappy barrels really are magical. Very well done and grateful to Shilt for sharing this.
