About an 8oz pour on tap at FFF. 2016 version.

A- Moat water brown... lets face it, barley wines are never pretty
S- Boozy, lots of barrel characteristics on the nose. Sweetness
T- Not too how. Barrel really shines. Lots of bourbon sweetness working well with the barley wine sweetness and hops. Not too sweet
F- Nice and full without being syrup
O- Great beer

An outrageous aroma with complex notes of raisin, toffee caramel, vanilla and oak. Badass, drink whenever you can.

Reviewed a 2013 bottle on 1/19/14
A: Cloudy brown liquid with 1/2 finger tan head
S: Bourbon heat tickles the nostrils. Earthy, oak, nougat.
T: No bourbon heat in the mouth. Sweet finish is almost like candy but not cloying at all.
M: Sweet, chewy, not hot at all.
O: Very tasty. I love it.

Probably the most complex and enjoyable BA barleywine that I have had. Viscous with tremendous barrel character and the nose on this beer is stellar.
