(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear rich brown with no head. Nose of earth, fresh leafy vegetables, chocolate, barrel, maple, bourbon vanilla and dark fruit. Taste of maple, vanilla, bourbon, butter-cream, well balanced! Moderate thick body with a big linger. Nice barley wine.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Deep amber pour with very little off-white head. Lots of caramel malt and toffee aromas - flavors of bourbon, dark fruit, and toffee. Alcohol comes out more and more as it warms.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish-amber color with an off-white head. The aroma is heavy on the caramel and toffee malt, with a little bit of rum and cocoa mixed in. The flavor is a little more complex. I get a lot of toffee, caramel, dark fruit, rum, roasted malt, molasses and some raisins. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

A: The beer pours an amber color with a short lived khaki colored head, initially a finger and a half tall. S: Oak is very evident on the nose right off the bat. Sweet caramel, dark fruits, and maple syrup provide a pleasant sweetness to it. There is a touch of char to the aroma, which I am assuming is from the barrel. T: Starts off with a big time maple syrup flavor. The finish has a lot of oak flavor to it and a touch of char. Some dark fruit character, perhaps black cherries and plums. Caramel and brown sugar provide additional sweetness. M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation. O: This beer is close to being really good, but at times the oak flavor is just too strong and detracts from the enjoyment of the beer.

bhensonb (11528) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 6, 2011
750 c&c from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours a brilliant clear dark garnet with a smear of beige head. Aroma is mostly medium dark fruit. Full body. Flavor is sweet malt, sweet dark fruit, and some bitter. The fruit is familiar, but I canít place it. There are suggestions of coffee and chocolate, but I donít think thatís right either. It is malty. There is an earthy barnyard aspect, like something that was in a barrel over long. Letís just say itís unusual and complex. A damn interesting and tasty ale. Extra note: Some time has passed, and now this is definitely oak/bourbon. Amazing how the flavors varied with time.

robertjm (776) - Albany, California, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Apretty much no head, butbabwhisp of foam. Bit of carbonation. Dark burnt orange body. Aroma thick of soy sauce. Flavors of raisins and rum. Slight roundness from the barrell aging. Reminds me most of an english style barley wine. Bit of coconut lingers the aftertaste. Best sipped in front of a fire with a thick cigar I supose.
