Look is a very murky dark brown. Poured with a finger plus of cream head that disappeared very quickly.

Aroma is huge raisin/fig/plum with a bunch of bourbon and a hint of tobacco .

Taste follows nose. Incredibly complex, balanced, smooth and potent.

Feel is smooth and slick.

Overall a fantastic BA Barleywine that is deceptively smooth and incredibly complex. The abv will catch up with you.

Appearance - Pours light purple color with light tan head that dissipates pretty quickly but comes back with a swish of the glass. spotty lacing.

Aroma - Huge dark fruit plum, fig, raisin lots of oak and bourbon, vanilla and some tobacco as it warms.

Taste - Taste is very similar to the aroma all of the flavors stand out but are very balanced. This is dangerously easy drinking and so very smooth.

Feel - Medium bodied smooth creamy feel nice warming from the bourbon very smooth and easy drinking.

Overall - Might be one of the best barleywine's I have had spot on aroma and flavors. Smooth as can be.

Shared by Austin as a vertical from 05 - 15. This was the 2012 BA version which stood out as a deeper and darker cousin compared to the non-barrel aged brothers. Intense, deep and delightful.
