Drinking this beer makes me feel fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy such a phenomenal brew while simultaneously wondering what could have been with a little carbonation. The beer is completely flat but also incredibly delicious. Seriously wonder if this would be among the best bourbon barrel barleywines I've had the pleasure of enjoying if it just had some effervescence. Still enjoyed every sip of my last bottle.
