Very hazy dark amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, fine carbonation. Creamy bourbon soaked malt. Alcohol spice. Touch of bitter wood. Nice smooth vanilla oak. Mild hop spice and a little marmalade. Finishes semi dry with the bourbon turning a little bitter. Quite bourbon led but nice. As per other raters, this really seems a barleywine and not a DIPA.
