Pours a slightly hazy copper brown from the bottle with dissipating tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is big bourbon barrel sweetness, vanilla and molasses. Taste follows, less impressive than the nose, slight bitterness and astringency. Very light carbonation, a bit of oxidation, but not bad.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! 12oz bottle. Aged in bourbon barrels, it says. Clear amber orange red color. Little ring of off-white head. Couple dots and ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter, kind of soft carbonation. More dry finish. Good caramel malty toasty aroma. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter. Light alcohol. Decent barrel aged barleywine. A little caramel malty sweet for me, hints of oxidization, but a decent barrel aged barleywine.
