Damn that jesterdeal dropped a box of dimes on me this last time. I’ve been watching breaking bad while drinking this beer this the slang. Anyways this really is a ridiculous drink. Vanilla and oak on the aroma with a smooth bourbon undertone and a touch of soy sauce. Flavor is a bunch of chocolate and smooth sweetness. Some cherry and a slight faint ever so subtle bittersweetnees to the coffee malt working. Something for everyone here. Bordering on a line I did not realize existed. A line between barleywine and impy stout.

Bottled. Dark reddish brown in color with a bubbly tan head. Sweet marzipan, lots of dark bready notes. Taste has similar notes, bready sweetyness, some vinous notes as well. Smooth and rich tasting as well throughout the whole time. Filled with energy and feels so incredibly good tasting and smooth on the whole. Almost perfect.

Poured from a bomber a few months back. This is my second favorite barleywine behind Angels Share. I loved the tobacco and bourbon flavors, but the creamy cherries really set it apart.

A vanilla, bourbon and oaky blend of barley wine deliciousness! If you can find, enjoy it.
