"Barley wine matured in bourbon barrels, 50% aged nearly a year. Brewed with 100% malted barely, Hypnosis pours a shimmering burnt caramel glass.

Poured from fridge temp. Very murky brown. Almost no carbonation. Smell is hops, cognac, cherries, raspberries, toffee. The first taste is toffee and caramel. Next is a bit of bitterness and then some brown sugar. Really interesting mix, but I am a big fan. I can definitely get the cognac in there, and there is a tad bit of alcohol burn. I bet this will mellow with 6-12 months. Tasting some nice dark fruit and a bit of chocolate on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Overall a great beer from Block 15. Glad I got to try it.

Pour...golden dark brown, lighty carbonated...light lacing.

Nose...strong of bourbon, vanilla, honey, sweetness, carmel with barrel characteristics.

Taste...dark fruits, leather, vanilla, very boose heavy, carmel velvety goodness as it graces my throat.

Impressed that it used both 15/20 yr old pappy van winkle barrels. Delectable and very smooth to drink.
