Intimidated to open this one up. Dark burgundy colour. Low carbonation. Smells very potent, huge bourbon note. Taste is composed of raisin, dark fruits, vanilla, and very sweet. At 16%, alcohol is omnipresent and takes a long time to drink the whole bottle. Bourbon flavor is incredibly pronounce, a very slow sipper for sure. Hits all the notes of an English Barleywine. A bit harsh for me, but decent.
