Bottled 12/17/15. Poured into a snifter.
This is freaking amazing and is easily one of the best beers I've ever had.

The appearance is a beautiful opaque and hazy dark brown. Almost muddy, which is just how I like my Barleywines to look.

The aroma is massive with bourbon, oak, vanilla, raisins, brown sugar, and some nuttiness.

The taste is big and sweet with vanilla, caramel, oak, bourbon spice, brown sugar, molasses and dark fruits.

The palate is full with a wonderful creaminess that lasts beautifully. Has a hint of lingering alcohol.

Overall this is a damn perfect beer that is easily one of the best beers in my favorite style, BBA English Barleywines.

Appearance - Pours beautiful ruby brown color with tan head with spotty lacing.

Aroma- Huge caramel, oak, vanilla, bourbon, malt aroma is amazing.

Taste - Taste is perfect balance of caramel, malt, vanilla, bourbon and a barrel presence that carries through the taste. Excellent flavors.

Feel - Medium bodied well carbonated slight heat from the bourbon.

Overall - One of the best barleywines I have had, not much I would change about this one,
