Bottle (180 ml). Extra from Gothgargoyle, huge thanks Sir! Hazy orange/brown with a small quickly diminishing beige head and no lacing. Aroma is really complex and exactly what I expect from a bourbon barrel Barley Wine... toffee, bourbon, vanilla, wood, raisins, figs, nuts, port notes... amazing! Taste is moderately sweet (not cloying), fruity at first and the a blast of toffee, bourbon, figs, plus, raisins, oak, vanilla and light bitterness. Warming alcohol, but not harsh at all. Full bodied. Low carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. That’s a kind of Barley Wine that I really enjoy. Amazingly complex! Great sipper!

Draught @ Mikkeller&Friends. Pours unclear chestnut with a lasting frothy minimal head. Aroma is bourbon, raisin, tart fruit, very ripe fruit, oak, vanilla, coconut, dades, brown sugars, cheesy Taste is heavy sweet. Body is moderate+, texture is viscous and sticky, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet and warming with toffee. Drinkability is surprisingly high at this ABV. Enjoyable stuff.

Tap. Unclear brown with a small off white head. Heavy bourbon, heavy sweet, molasses, sticky, not boozy but alcohol lurking in a dark alley waiting to punch me in the face and steal all my stuff. Real heavy sticky bourbon and warming alcohol.
