Pours a dark copper brown and murky.

Oak, vanilla, bourbon, citrusy hop resin, and caramel.

Barrel character is there, but the base beer still is able to shine through.

Heavy-bodied, medium carbonation, chewy, thick, some larger chunks of sedimentation.

Overall, while this appears a murky, unappealing mess, the hops really make this one stand out in aroma and flavor.

Bottle thanks to Torrey bottle 133 of 744. Barley wine tasting 2018. Copper colored pour with a small tan head. Malty aroma with some nice boozy barrel notes. Sweet malts up front in the taste, wood barrel, vanilla. Well rounded

This one is a darker hue than the base, displaying cloudy but shimmering copper-brown with a creamy tan collar.

The smell is a drastic change from the base, and a huge step up as well, with more toasty, charred oak, caramel, red wine grapes and vanilla.

A ton of charred bourbon and toasty vanilla oak comes across on the palate as well, with prune, red grape and amaretto heat. Holy complexity Batman! I'm at a loss for descriptors, but I do get some maple and graham as it warms.

Medium body, fuzzy carbonation, with a very dry, sticky finish.

2017 Green Wax - Woodford

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.
