Good looking beer with an unusually good head for such a high ABV. Taste-wise, however, it was lacking. Little or no discernible bourbon flavor. Too much hoppy bitterness. More like a double IPA than a barrel aged barleywine.

Bottle from Whole Foods. Not much to look at, but a pleasure to drink. Bourbon barrel aging smooths out the entire package, making this one an easy to drink BW. Malts shine throughout, tons of caramel, toffee and butterscotch. Not much of the BA is readily evident, just subtle notes here and there, and toning down the 11% ABV to drinkable levels.

Poured an amber/red color with a head about two fingers that stayed throughout the tasting. Big big nose of fig, vanilla and caramel; with the underlying nose of alcohol.

Good body with malty character, taste of fig newton and bourbon barrel. Lingers for over a minute if you allow time between tastes. A very good barley wine without the usual burn from an 11% beer.

Poured dark mahogany on draft. Thin layer of head, leaves nothing.

Aroma is very muted, nothing resembling a barrel or otherwise. Medium body, negligible carbonation, but a nice milky feel. Bitterness starts creeping in, but falls off at the finish.

Taste is dark fruit, sweet and some maltiness. Really nice rounded out flavor.

Overall, this drinks impressively easy. Good balance and maybe not a lot of complexity, but a nice Barleywine. It seems the barrels did more to mellow the beer than actually impart any flavors.

Dark brown liquid, whispy thin head on it, big boozy heat in the aroma. Couldn't really discern much aroma wise, other than it was a huge beer abv wise.

Taste was again burning. As the palate acclimates itself, one can gather that this is whiskey/bourbon, some char, vanilla. The price is nice, but its a harsh beer. Save for the end of the night when your palate is already shot.
