Drag at Ale House. Pours medium orange brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is very nice... Toffee, honey, bourbon, oak, with a bi of orange peel on top. Wow, tastes almost like a watered down bourbon cocktail . Very bourbon forward, oak, toffee, honey, a hint of orange. While the flavor is bourbon forward, and it obviously has a high abv, it drinks nice and smooth. Really liking this.

had a bottle and on draft, way less heat on tap .. . rich booze, hay, burnt sugar, and boozy grain .. . slick full mouth, heavy sweetness .. . sticky ending, good finish .. nice massive beer .. . . It’s hard to explain puns to kleptomaniacs because they always take things literally.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Orangish in color, fairly vibrant, small to moderate frothy white head, little lacing.   Pale breadiness, melon, bourbon, and soft caramel on the nose.   Warming up front, lots of pale breadiness and melon, with a background of caramel.   Blonde Barleywine fits this one fairly well.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Strong pale breadiness and caramel on the finish, with melon and bourbon notes.   The caramel is surprisingly pale, its not like brown sugar like caramel.   More melon and marshmallow like sweetness.   Its on the verge of being cloying, but just short.   Fairly tasty.

Amber pour with a decent white head. Aroma of bourbon mostly, some honey, caramel, and barrel. Taste is big on that Firestone Walker barrel character, vanilla, wood, honey, and a bit of hops. Really sweet. Not my favorite barrel aged offering from Firestone but pretty good overall.
