I don't get this at all. Totally flat and blown away by a lot of stuff on this list.

This is more like a Barleywine. Less of an old ale. I am very excited to be able to try this. It gets lost in a sea of barleywines and stouts, but would stand out on its own. Well done!

Bottle from BlowOffTube, thanks for the opportunity!
Ruby brown color with a smallish off white head that dissipates quickly. Toffee, fruity, vanilla, and light oak with hints of molasses and alcohol make up most of the aroma. Smells quite sweet but I like it. The flavor is sweet and fruity with bits of caramel and burnt sugars. Light vanilla and wood with some solid warming alcohol. Thick body with a sweet sticky mouthfeel. Great sipper!

2011 bottle. One of the best tasting beers I've had. The bourbon barrel flavors blend so well with the sweet carmel/toffee flavors.
