3.52/5  rDev -10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: A real dark hazy copper colored ale, heavy bubbles all over the body rose pretty high in the beginning creating off-white head with a light orange tint, maybe 2/3".

Smell: Light but still strong in the malt department.

Taste: I will try to break it down to the best of my ability, not really complex...a light sweet malt that you can tell was aged barrels but what kind..not good ones. It is also a little sweet almost like a butterscotch. Could use a little tweaking.

Mouth: A bit dry if you ask me, come off a little woody at the end.

Overall: I was expecting a lot more, I have a huge love for all barleywines but this quite didn't do it for me. Factoring in price, you can save yourself a few and grab something more worthwhile. Not to knock it but there is more out there...Salud!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Bottled in May of 2011

A: pours a murky brown with two fingers of tan head that recedes into a thin layer with a little lacing.

S: caramel, vanilla, raisins, and oak dominate the nose with some slight oxidation notes.

T: similar to the aroma, caramel, vanilla, raisins and dates, and oak flavors dominate. There are some oxidized flavors here as well along with some hearty bread notes before a finish that has only a little alcohol presence.

M: medium-thick body with lowish carbonation, this beer isn't as sticky sweet as many barleywines, which is nice.

O: a solid beer overall. I'd like a bit more depth and bourbon character, but there's nothing particularly offensive about it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: into a tulip, brown ale with a few fingers of tan head that left clingy lace down the glass - head persisted throughout the drink

S: earthy grains, bourbon and oak, candied fruits

T: sweet figs and molasses up front, with dry, whiskey woods and hearty grains to finish - nice complexity hinting at dark musky fruits, oak alcohol vapors, and chewy barley - some suggestions of savory spices

M: medium-full bodied, smooth but with a semisweet bitterness to close, some fizz of carbonation, slight coating on the tongue

O: hearty, not too sweet, complex and well-balanced hop and malt mixture. Much better than I expected.
