Thanks Adam M for the bottle. 2012 (woodford barrels) edition enjoyed at 60F in a wine glassA – Burnt amber hues, light head fades fast

S – I can smell sweet booziness on the pour from 2 feet away. Loads of very sweet nectar of bourbon. Drank some Woodford Reserve before pouring this and there are a lot of similarities in the sweetness, oak and coconut.

T – WOW. This is something really special! It is a very sweet beer but the oak, smoke and brown sugar balance it out. There’s a toffee taste with hints of caramel and vanilla sweetness at the finish. This lingers for a very long time after finishing.

M – Decent carbonation on the mouth swish, heavy body…heavy swish leads to a cotton candy taste

O – This is a fantastic beer! Not my favorite barleywine but wow.
