Notes: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Barleywine with Banana, Vanilla Bean, Cinnamon, and Sea Salt

These things appear within the confines of the unseen. From the cracks in our painted universe. From the belly of our bellowing consciousness. Into the swing of our imploding existence. A blend of highly beloved barleywine, each having 10-18 months of bourbon barrel aging lifetime. Aged upon a load of fresh banana, whole Madagascar vanilla bean, Spicewalla cinnamon, and a pleasing dose of sea salt. A violent pall of creme brulee, tabeside bananas foster, and densely spiced banana bread.

Released 7/16/20; drank 7/26/20 @ the Yarchives.

Opaque dark brown appearance.

An even pour yielded a nice khaki head; minimal lace.

Nutmeg, caramel, mild banana & faint mulled cider notes in the nose.

Medium thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Mulled cider & banana flavors up front; caramel & mild cinnamon notes on the finish. Booze heat emerged as this warmed.

This would be heaven on a fall night...as it was, it suited me fine in July as well.
