Kinda still in the glass, huge toffee and booze aroma, tasted like a toasted marshmellow in a toffee cognac, syrupy, beautifully integrated and well hidden booze. Best BW I've had. b1 shared three ways.

L: Deep dark reddish color with an off 1 finger of head on an agressive pour
S: Can really smell the cognac in the nose.
T: Blew me away. Rich an sweet. Dark fruits, very slightly malty and oaky. Very well balanced. At 17.3%, the alcohol is bueatifully hidden.
F: Full mouthfeel. Not as heavy as I would have thought. Very rich though.
O: This has to be one of the best barleywines I have ever had. Love BCBBS, but this is better (especially when compared to the 2015). Am glad I picked up a few of these bad boys. My only knock on this beer is it is slightly too sweet. I'm hoping with a little age, that sweetness is tamed a little. Otherwise, pretty much perfect!
