Definitley notes of infection which is a shame because other than the tart fruit notes it is a good beer with lots of vanilla and caramel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big BIG thanks to Doodler for reading my mind and send me this NM barleywine. I owe you man! The gold waxed 22oz bomber pours opaque copper with gold hues and supporting a short lived tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a tart sort of red wine note and then it starts to get into some oak, vanilla and bourbon. The taste is similar where I’m getting bourbon sliding into a barrel tartness and a bit of red wine. Wow, there is no beer left here but just vanilla, bourbon and a slight infection. Sure glad I didn’t try and age this one.
