mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle into snifter. Nice hazy amber brown color with good amount of light tan head that held well and faded into a medium collar. Earthy sweet caramel aroma. Taste is slightly boozey, but otherwise an enjoyable woody hop pines, some toffee, and a slight vanilla character. A bit lighter body than I would like from a barley wine. Medium carbonation.

I am not a whiskey drinker, so this was repulsive to me. One drink and I had to pour the rest down the drain. Unsure which is the worst - this or Sunday Morning Stout. Both I would most likely vomit if I tried to drink the entire bottle.
