It pours amber with a rue head. It has a brown head with the head retention being low. It has a strong malty rich aroma to start. There are some citrus aromas with floral elements and a spice. There are also aromas of dark fruits resembling plums and raisins. The malt aromas have caramel, molasses, and a bit of chocolate. The flavors are highlighted by caramel, a bit of chocolate, and molasses. There are citrus notes including orange. There are other flavors including plums and raisins and a bit of roast, spice, and a bit of sherry. The bourbon flavors are blended in well with the other flavors. It has a full body that is slightly syrupy. There is a good balance between malts and hops with the bourbon flavors enhancing the combination. Overall, an excellent barleywine that has good balance and features bourbon flavors without them being overbearing. mariuspoenari (3201) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2017
