4.3/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a mahogany color with a thin head that quickly disappears; no lacing

Smell: Toasted oak, vanilla and caramel tones complemented by the Bourbon barrel

Taste: Caramel and Bourbon forward, with the vanilla creeping in; earthy, with a lot of oak in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low carbonation; warmth in the gullet

Overall: I do like a good English Barleywine, a style I just don't see frequently

Pours into a tulip glass a murky kind of reddish brown with a creamy half finger lighter beige head top.Deeply fruity in the nose along with a tinge of vanilla/bourbon,pretty straight forward.Caramel,vanilla,and leathery notes upfront on the palate,some booze/bourbon and dark fruit come into play late into the finish.Very English in nature the bourbon element,very nice.One of the better NC brewed beers I have had in awhile.

Look: It pours brown with a bit of clouding. It has a tan head with low head retention.

Smell: Strong caramel aromas up front with some toffee. There is a bit of an orange like note and light molasses. There are subtle notes of bourbon.

Taste: Very malty in the flavor with combinations of caramel and toffee. There are some nutty notes with a bit of molasses and low bourbon. There are also low dried fruit flavors and low floral notes.

Feel: It has a full chewy body with a smooth texture.

Overall, the malts are dominate from the start to the finish, but the other background flavors make for a complex flavor sensation.
