Growler… <RBWG 2013… Clear copper pour with no head. The aroma is a decadent intermingling of vanilla, toasted oak, toffee, caramel and bourbon. Full-bodied and sticky with tingly carbonation. The flavor is a wonderful assortment of vanilla, bourbon, caramel and boozy warmth right on through the finish. Reminiscent of cream soda - with a splash of dark rum.

Growler given to RBWG 2013 by the brewery. Thanks burg for muling! Rich amber red pour with a small khaki head. Sweet aroma, lots of sugar and caramel, as I recall their barleywine being anyway, with touches of barrel and oak that enhances the sweetness. Sweet caramel and sugar on the flavor as well, touches of barrel, some vanilla, booze, and oak. Not bad, sweet.

The Vet. looks the fish over and tells the man, "there is nothing wrong with your fish,he looks just fine to me. The man replies," I haven’t taken him out of the water yet.

Growler at RBWG. Malty, oaky with a hint of vanilla. It’s not too bad and isn’t boozy or overpowering.

Growler to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting (thanks burg326). Looks good; an amberish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and boozy. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
