650ml red waxed 2012 bomber poured into tulip 4/9/13
A clear brownish amber with a shitload of tiny bubbles moving some sediment around, two fingers of tan foam falls to a pinky's width and stays there for a while leaving a couple partial rings followed by random patches
S loads of vanilla and hard toffee, burnt brown sugar, some wood and bruised dark fruit, faint citrus, nutty notes, and a little booze
T not far off the nose, more booze, more wood but not a whole lot of bourbon, nutty notes I could smell are focused on hazelnut, the nose has an edge but I'm not complaining about the flavor
M silky and creamy, some heat and tannins, woody notes and nutty toffee linger on the finish
O pretty solid but could use some age, good value and If I had the chance I'd buy one to sit on
good attempt at a BW for a first try, something I'd drink again and one of the better Granville's I've had recently

Red waxed 2012 bottle. Bourbon barrel aged.
Appearance. Pours a deep reddish brown with a half finger of off-white head.
Smell. Woody bourbon and vanilla, caramel, piney and woody hops, a little citrus and some grainy malts.
Taste. Big sweet caramel, plums and raisins, some piney hops giving a bit of bitterness in the finish, brown sugar bitter wood, bourbon, vanilla and maybe a little bit of smoke.
Mouthfeel. Full body, a little sticky, medium-low carbonation.
Overall. A decent barleywine with lots of wood and not a ton of bourbon. Interesting and would probably be great with some time on it to mellow the piney hops a bit.
