Dark Horse Bourbon Barrel Monster 29

Dark Horse Monster 2917.5% ABV. Barleywine from Dark Horse Brewing in Marshall, Michigan. I have heard rave reviews about this extremely limited barleywine while I was just getting into the barleywine bandwagon, I really wanted to give this beer a try. It set me back a few goodies to finally land this beer. Pours deep and dark brown leaving very little lacing behind with almost no carbonation throughout. The aromas picked up varieties of dark fruit, toffee, bourbon, and booze. The flavor was more of deep dark fruit/some tropical fruit with hints of toasted and roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. The barrel was paramount in the middle to end with notes of bourbon, oak, and faint vanilla. Sticky and sweet with a booze level that is quite apparent and did not overpower. Overall, a very fine example of an American bourbon barrel barleywine! This was too tough for me to come by to seek this out again however…
