look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a 650ml bottle into a Smutty Big beer tulip. 2012 vintage. Cellar temp.

Appearance- Clearer amber with quick bubbly off-white head that left no lacing. Looks to be well carbonated.

Smell- Rich caramel, stone fruits, mild booze, oaky vanilla and tobacco. Fairly typical barrel aged barleywine aromas.

Taste- Much of the nose, but oak is quite prevalent by now. Big caramel and cherry and plums, vanilla, tobacco. No booze taste.

Mouthfeel- Highly carbonated which perturbs me slightly. Other than that, Medium-full body, medium heat at the back of the throat, but over all pretty easy to drink. I would like less carbonation.

Overall- A nice BBA Barleywine. Too carbonated but overall, nicely balanced.
