Had this at Thanksgiving dinner with friends. I've had this beer several times and it keeps getting better with age. Hey BHB! put this beer in a can?

Poured from a bomber into a snifter.

A: Pours a deep copper brown with ruby highlights. A beautiful ale. A thin off-white head which quickly dissipates into a ring with nice lacing.

S: Notes of caramel, vanilla, and graham cracker. Hops and a mild alcohol perfume.

T: Bourbon, oak and vanilla notes up front, hops and a slightly harsh bourbon return.

M: Medium weight, tight, crisp carbonation across the middle. The alcohol is quite warming.

O: I love the look and smells involved, but flavors aren't quite as smooth. Granted, it's a great big bourbon barrel-aged barleywine with a respectable ABV. I just wish the flavors were as well-balanced as the amazing aromas.

2015 is a really great beer . Tasts of Carmel vanilla are great it's sweet and and has a full bodied feel has a nice feel. Smells of a ok and raisins when poured into a glass this is a very good barleywine it's a must have if u can get your hands on it. I belive there was a limited supply.

Appearance: Nice head retention from the one inch ecru cap; stringy lacing lingers over the clear copper colored liquid

Smell: Caramel, raisin, fig and brown sugar, with pine and citrus pith; modest notes of Bourbon, vanilla and oak

Taste: The sweet flavors of caramel, brown sugar, raisin and fig jut forward, with the pine and citrus pith tones building through the middle; there is just a hint of Bourbon, vanilla and oak that develop

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice barleywine; the beer would have benefited, however, from greater exposure to the Bourbon barrel

Thanks, factory, for the opportunity

2015 vintage

L - Pours a dark rusty copper body with a light tan one finger head. Good retention on the head, although no noticeable lacing.

S - Sweet malts and caramel with a citrus tone midway through and a bourbon, vanilla and light oak on ending.

T - Rich caramel and malts abound. Bourbon and vanilla backs it up. The oak and bourbon flavors really come out as the beer warms. It also gets a little more bitter on the ending. Not an in your face beer, but all the flavors come together as very tasty.

F - Full bodied and low carbonation. Really rich mouthfeel, so smooth and velvety.

O - This is a great example of a well done BA Barleywine.
