Almost clear deep red beer, good pale tan head. Big bourbon nose. Palate is surprisingly light and has mild minerally crispness. Big bourbon - spicy. Toffee - cream malts underneath. Trace of vanilla oak. Fruity bourbon before a light dry finish. Warming afterglow. Pretty full on bourbon! Hides the abv reasonably well.

thome50 (1252) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Draft at Tustin Brewing. Marked as the "2010" version. Pours a cola brown with minimal white to tan head. Aroma is caramel, oak chips, acorns (odd) and some vanilla. Taste was a very well rounded caramel, barrel, malty balanced barley wine. No hops. Nice barley wine but couldn’t really deal with it on a 90 degree November afternoon.

On tap. Pours with a near black body, sort of cola like with a minimal off-white head. Aromas of cola, dates, char, dark fruit, milk chocolate, and a lot of barrel. Fruity with a good bit of bourbon. Flavors are of toffee, toasty, caramel, maple, cola, barrel, vanillin, dark fruit and drying tannins. Medium-low carbonation and nicely warming.
