Bottle from last nights share. Thick amber body, small ring of bubbly head, Picking up all of the barley wine essences, but little of the bourbon barrel. Sweet malt, toffee, caramel in both aroma and taste. It doesnt even present itself as that boozy of a beer. Some dark fruit, raisins, some vanilla.
