    Pours a murky red color. Off white head dissipates quickly. Wispy and spotty lacing. The aroma is of rich brown caramel, brown bread, raspberry scones, fruitcake, pinch of brown cocoa, juicy red berry and currant esters. Bourbon and wood are initially quiet, but become more prominent as the beer warms. The taste is of candy apple, brown bread, chewy caramel, toffee, brown cocoa. Earthy and herbal hops are stiff and bitter with a spicy and oily punch that clamps down a bit. They bring a nectarine/marmalade citrusy dimension too. Vinous fruitiness of cherries, currants, and red berries. Woody barrel flavors and bourbon punch through toward the back with a touch of spicy alcohol heat. Sweet candied finish with earthy bitter hops gripping harder. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy in body with a syrupy and viscous feel. Low carbonation. Spicy alcohol warmth and light to medium bodied.

    A deeply dark mahogany-amber colored beer with a small, sudsy textured light tan head rising above. There's decent hang time in the head. It settles into a thick ringlet, low hanging film and persistent cap. Bourbon dominates the profile in the nose and tasting. Light, high octane

    I found this barley wine to be very weak in aroma,mouthfeel,taste and appearance. Compared to other barley wines that I have drank. I'm not saying this is bad just not as full and rich as others. I could taste the bourbon on the back of the roof of my mouth. It's 10% abv is noticeable but the lack of solid malt, barley, wine & fruit. Makes presence of a zing of bitter taste but very slight.
