A - Pours about as I'd expect for a barleywine, cola bodied with a light khaki head. Lacing and retention aren't there.

S - Overall a bit of sweetness... Lovely bourbon notes with vanilla, oak and brown sugar.

T - To me, the taste really follows the nose step for step. The rye spices also come to the fore front here. Just a notch below the smell due to a little more sweetness coming out.

M - A bit on the thin side for the style and medium carbonation. The smooth body does bring some heat with it.

O - Really a well done beer. If the body was a bit thicker then it'd be spot on.
