Wow! 14.1%. Rumor is a limited edition bottling is on the way. Pretty self explanatory. The Lakewood, New York based brewery took their barley wine and aged in bourbon.

On tap at Dexters a while back, pours a clear dark amber with an off white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma was really sweet, a little more than I was expecting, some of the bourbon and oak comes through as well, the flavor has a lot of bourbon character on the front end with some dark fruit and caramel in the finish, really thick and full, pretty nice though, just a huge freaking beer.
