Tiny, gold foiled, 6 oz bottle - Deepest of deep brown, nearly black, and looks fairly inky in most light. No real capping of foam, just a few bubbles presented themselves and quickly lapped away.

Aroma is mostly of whiskey without the extreme burn in the nose of the big stuff. Nice aged quality about it with firm malty sweetness and welcome notes within of vanilla, molasses, and chocolate.

Smooth taster with a hugely deep and earthy warming maltyness, sweet, dark, soothing bourbon traits mixing with some ripe fig and raisinyness and notes of fresh vanilla bean, molasses, tobacco, spent brown suger, and chocolate. Nice chewy finish with a peppy little tang of dark cherry and fig maltyness and a quick underscoring warmth the sets right in.

Nice body and feel with a solid medium soothing smoothness of semi creamy, tangy, chewy malt and one heck of a great tone of bourbon the way through.

Gone in a flash with only 6 oz to be enjoyed. One very nice little Barleywine with a great bourbon character to it.

Thanks Faro!
