The flavor are very strong with malt. The malt are loaded with toast, caramel and treacle. The bourbon and wood are moderate. There are low levels of dark fruit. The dark fruit is mostly plums and raisins. There is very low vanilla. It is thick and chewy.
Straight down the middle Barleywine. Super smooth, sweet, light on the malt for Barleywine, nice but subtle bourbon flavor. This is about as broadly appealing as a Barleywine can be given that this extreme style of beer is not for everyone.Earned the Photogenic Brew (Level 66) badge! Earned the The Wine of Beers badge!
