3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery - listed as 13.2% - Clear ruby beer - faint wisp of lace - smell is intense bourbon, vanilla, coconut - you need to like bourbon to enjoy this - good thing I do - flavors of bourbon, vanilla, treacle, caramelized sugars - finish has some alcohol and just the right amount of bitter oakiness - as far as boozy BA barleywines go, this is a winner.

Growler. Deep red pour, thick tan head. The smell is quite boozy, caramel, bourbon, malt. The flavor is rich and thick. It is super hot and boozy but still really really tasty. If you like big shit liek KH or CWBBBW try it.
