Draft sample at Crossroads Spirits (2012 Vintage). Poured a hazy brownish/amber color with a thick frothy light tan head. Aroma of wood, caramel, light citrus notes, and roasted malt. Taste is similar. Chewy caramel, some sweet dark fruits, subtle rotted citrus notes, and dry wood. Pretty solid. Couldn't have ever killed a growler of this by myself, but happy I got to sample it.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
AROMA: was a tad bit strong you could really make out the red wine and whiskey overall very pleasing. APPEARANCE: dark red wine as expected by most barley wines. Sort of flat foaming top poured very light. TASTE: very different from other beers I’ve tasted has its own unique taste to set it apart from other flying dogs. ITS like drinking strong champagne with a bunch of hops not recommended for soft drinker PLATE: The ABV.% was at 10.0so that made the beer have an over whelming palate taste the whiskey was no help ether. OVERALL: I would recommend you only drink 1-2 do to the high ABV% very strong but some what sweet tasting cheers!!
