Bottle purchased at brewery 3 months ago:
Pours a deep, clear-looking auburn brown. Head isn't much to speak of, but holds a ring that isn't interested inlacing the glass.

Nose is a very deep, nicely constructed bourbon soaked raisin and prune. There a certain leathery note as well.

Taste has similar aspects, though there's a little more tart and tang - raisin and perhaps wood. The bourbon has a bit of vanilla and almost no heat. Same leather note is present.

Feel, however is a small problem. This is a bit watery and though the flavors are quite strong, they still have an aspect of dilution by mid taste. Warmth brings a bit of heat in back.

With a little more thickness, I think this would be an awesome beer. It comes on strong, fizzles a bit in the middle, but makes a little comeback with some muted back end notes.

L: pours like thick rust water with a film of head that fades fast.
S: sweet bourbon and caramel raisins.
T: oh yeah! So good. It nails the bourbon soaked caramel covered raisins profile.
F: so smooth, good coating after the drink, but a bit thin.
O: awesome babw!

It's good, and I'd drink it again, but it's not drop $13 on a single good. Very sweet. Tons of fruitiness, from apricot to plum to prune. Less bourbon than most jackie o's. Slightly dry. Surprising faint oxidation considering a 2017 bottle.

Overall - not a life changing barleywine. And to be honest, for my distribution area, I feel weyerbeybacher did this style bb aged better at $4.50/bottle with insanity so this'll be a hard revisit.
