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.

A: Caramel Brown.

S: Breadiness, hops, some sweetness.

T: Hops, but not overly bitter. Breadiness. Some slight sweetness in the way back. A fairly basic flavor profile.

F: very average

O: Had the same night as FFF Behrmoth. This tasted like Behemoth Lite.

Sweet and hoppy. Loads of burnt candy flavors with a hoppy finish. Boozy but no barrel. Maybe needed more time in the barrel. Definitely would enjoy this on a cold night. Overall a solid barleywine but needs more barrel.

Appearance: Moderately hazed body, the color of dark sandalwood capped by a scant, fine, off-white head. Hey, check out those legs!

Smell: Heavy, sweet-scented aroma of salted caramel sauce over toasted grains with hints of orange peels (both sweet and bitter), pureed sultanas, light-colored brown sugar, and American oak with some cutting, jutting traces of alcohol.

Taste: Caramel, brown sugar, and the crusty tops of crème brûlée. Richly sweet, seductively sweet. Golden raisins, sweet morningtime marmalade, and a faint fluttering of florals. There's a firm creepy uncle-like pinch of hop bitterness, but also a noted kick of alcohol. Mild oaky tannins, touch of vanilla-flavored sugar, and a lightly toasted coconut shreds. Sweet, malty finish with plenty of warming alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A considerably potent beverage! It's not quite hot, but it's definitely got some heat to it, but it's substantial body and dessert-like qualities make it a fine, slow-sipper.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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
