A nice "refined" barleywine.
A dark amber color with a tiny head.
Aroma of caramel, booze, and oak.
Toffee taste, whiskey, and vanilla.
Not aggressively hopped. A smooth-drinking sipper.

Appearance: Pours a mahogany color and is capped by three fingers of ecru foam; excellent stickage; shards of lacing hang around

Smell: Caramel, dark fruit, pine, oak and Rye whiskey; boozy aromatics

Taste: Caramel, fig and herbal pine tones forward but it doesn't take long for the barrels to make an impact - the Rye moreso than the Bourbon; strong Rye flavors through the middle and into the finish; considerable warmth in the gullet

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: You need to like Rye whiskey to like this beer as it is overpowering; this is a 2016 bottle so I imagine it will become more complex with age

Had big bottle of #4 Hammerhead. Hazy, brown, thin fizzy head, sweet smelling. Very malty with caramel and lots of oak. Tastes like Southern California (terroir?). Great barleywine, nice and strong. Excellent sipper.

Super dark brown colored beer that features tinges of Amber towards the edges with an off white latte foamy head. Very persistent head that leaves ample lace. Great looking barley wine.

Smell is very musty and dank. There is ample raisin and dark fruit smell, with pungent and sharp whiskey/alcohol sharpness. Almost a hint of raspberry as well. Some brown sugar/toffee.

Brown sugar is first and foremost, molasses with hints of dark fruits with a hefty dose of coffee/hop bitterness. The flavor a are pretty balanced, a lot of sweet up front them at fades to a bitter, coffee like finish.

The mouthfeel is the most impressive aspect. Fast and light with low carbonation and a distinct creaminess. It dances on your tongue without leaving any lingering syrupy-ness.

Very balanced between sweet and bitter with an amazing softness.

2014 vintage in a Teku glass

L - This pours a caramel mahogany color. Almost no head.
S - I get some malt sweetness, bourbon, caramel, and brown sugar
T - Bourbon, Vanilla, and a little caramel. Just a touch of heat on the back.
F - This has a nice body to it. Good and syrupy.
O - I though that this was a pretty good barley wine with some good barrel character.
