Appears a dark amber tone with a fluffy white cap that fades into a small collar. Speckles of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of caramel, orange citrus notes, vanilla, anise, and pepper.
Taste is if the aromas, with a citrusy, spicy, bourbon with southern comfort punch.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, warming, and smooth. For Christ's sake, how is this 11.5%? Smooth.

Year old plus? Thanks to rudzud.

No real fizzy head, semi clear hazy mahogany brown color, decent legs.

Nose is great, tons of great whiskey, rye whiskey, some toasty oak barrel with faint vanilla, big sweet candy, toffee, caramel, candy chewy, dark fruits, date and candied raisin, brown sugar, sugardaddy candy, juicy malt, toasty brown malt. No booze.

Taste brings more of the same, big fruity, raisin and date, little prune too, tangy dark fruit juice. Into lots of sweet characters, caramel and toffee all over, brown sugar, candied dates, little bitterness, etc. Mild whiskey, little vanilla oak barrel, mild rye whiskey, etc. Vanilla nougat and candy bar mild chocolate, all back end. Lingering sweet sticky caramel candy, prune and date candied juice, mild bitterness, hint of booze.

Mouth is thin, bit watery, light carb too, little syrupy, very light booze.

Overall started very good, such a great barrel aged barleywine on the nose but taste lacked a lot of the goodies, and mouth was very flat, but booze was hidden well. Pretty good though.
