THE Barleywine tasting. Thanks very much Bruce for this monster. Slightly haze on this darkish amber beer. Little tan head. Smooth palate, slightly dry. Touch of vanilla and toasted coconut. Lots of smooth bourbon - well integrated. Underneath is a lovely rich toffee malt. Semi dry finish. About what you would expect from a BA Barleywine but somehow superior in every aspect. Very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz, at TFODRBSG 2012. An almost clear one, brown in color and almost without any head. Alcohol, roasted malts, some pleasant hoppyness, a touch of vanilla and a dash of chocolate. Quite chocolatey in the flavor, with vanilla, alcohol, roasted malts and a fine bitterness. Too warm on the palate I think, but it’s pleasant anyway. Full body, sweetish. Some raisins and prunes. Really lasting finish, with the alcohol a bit too obvious. Overall, a really fine beer, but it’s too warming. A sharing beer. 120818
