Extremely smooth and refined. You get a lot of the woody character and some bourban notes that add vanilla and booze. It's wonderful really.

A proper Barleywine aged beautifully in Bourbon Barrels. Deep, rich malts are complimented by the bourbon & woody character of the barrel. Wonderful warmth (not burning) lasts on the finish. Big things (15.5% ABV) come in little packages.
