Super dark brown opaque body with a tan cap. This is a complex beauty of a beer. Huge bourbon, molasses, brown sugar, various dark fruits, red wine, blended darker oaks, caramel, barley, a hint of anise and earthy smoke in the nose. Taste is just as rich and complex: barley actually is detected more here, the boozy dark fruits with the molasses and hint of orange is just breathtaking, slight oxidation is a pleasant finishing addition. Barrel character is massive. Feel reflects all of this with smooth richness but also huge oak, booze, and barley. This might be the most complex barleywine I have ever had! The wife loved it.

This is what a barrel aged barleywine should be. It’s sweet, it’s smokey, it’s boozy as hell, and it’s tasty.
