Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Bomber shared by Wilkie! Pours a nice clear ruby amber with a thin head. Aroma is bourbony sweet, with earthy hints, spice, tons of sweet refined malts, caramel and toffee lots of oak and a bit boozy but not overly so. More super refined sweetness in the flavor, but doesnt get overly cloying, the bourbon barrles dry it out a bit- syrupy, molasses, yet clean, and a nice astringent and moderate bitter finihs. Pretty straightforward BA barleywine that wasnt outstanding but nothign bad here.
