Draft. Beer nutz. Dark copper. Smaller head, dissipated. Aroma of sweet and dark fruits, citrus hops, medium bitter, light sweetness. Bitter finish. Med body. Like it.

For me, this is the template of what a barleywine should be about. A perfect blend of vanilla, oak, toffee, caramel, and hops all wrapped around the strength of the bourbon it picked up from the barrels. Smooth, soft, warming and satisfying on the palate, a near perfect aroma to match the flavors of this beer and for me, you have the makings of a watermark barleywine. Thank you Dave!

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2006
Looks like shit - hazy flat amber. The aroma is standout, rich with bourbon, caramel, light alcohol and quite a bit of malt complexity. Very appetizing. The body is soft and sweet. There is surprisingly good integration between the bourbon/vanilla/wood and the sweetness of the dense malts, which has a soothing character not unlike the first edition of WWS. Excellent use of the barrells.

omhper (19309) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2006
Bottled. Lightly hazy, dark amber. Peaty calvados aroma. Dryish with surprisingly slender body. Lots of toffeeish malt. The flavours are unusual - prickly pears with islay whiskey and vanilla. Amazingly intense. A beer that stood out amidst many other crazy beers in a crazy tasting session.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 30, 2006
This barrel-aged barleywine pours a murky brown color from a hand bottled 22oz bottle. Small to no head. Aroma is caramel malts and vanilla, some oak. A medium to full bodied barley wine. Sweet caramel malts with some vanilla and oak flavors. Very smooth and mellow flavor. Big bourbon flavors. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 19/20
ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Bottled. Murky mahogany with a slight white head. Vanilla aromas along with the malt. Some hops as well. Big bourbon flavor with just a bit of oak and some sugar. This is simply FANTASTIC!

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2007 holy crap what do you call this but liquid sex. The beautiful nose of this beer dances between the malt of the barleywine and the wonderful vanilla oak and distillate of the Bourbon, wild turkey? An amazing example of wood aged perfection that unfortunately will be in far to small a supply I am sure.
