Keg. Murky brown with a small beige head. Nose is dominated by bourbon with some sugary malt and wood. Flavour is also rich on bourbon; vanilla, coconut, white wood. Caramel malt behind it, warming alcohol, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, glue, salty licorice. Soft and filling in the mouth, heavy sweet and moderate bitter without getting sticky, light acidic, light hot alcohol. Long bourbon finish. Not bad.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 28, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller, Victoriagade during CBC week. Poured a clear dark reddish brown with a thin broken light tan head. The aroma is big sweet malt, rich fruit and alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a huge alcohol bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. The alcohol really dominates this beer and burns quite a bit too. The best barley wines control the alcohol and let the flavours come through. This one burns a little too much to be a great.
