12 oz bottle. Deep brown with sparse froth that rises with a swirl. Nose is bourbon and honey with a touch of grass. Meadlike in its sweetness. Medium body with a tang, lightly sticky. Taste is apple, caramel, grass, banana and bourbon. Comes off a little washed out; sneaky alcohol.

Very strong ale. Drink it from a snifter. Alcohol though out this one. Bourbon seems to increase the sharpness. Luckily it doesn't overpower it so you don't feel like your drinking a shot of bourbon.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, coconut, bourbon, fruit, alcohol, mint, and oak. It pours a transparent bright reddish-orange with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, toffee, and cream. The finish is a real nice blend of bourbon, coconut, vanilla, mint, and oak. It’s medium bodied with very soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Really dark red pour almost brown. Off white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is plums, fig, vanilla, and booze. Taste is dark fruit, chocolate, oak, with some sweetness and a touch of bourbon to round it out. Suprisingly drinkable for 12% abv.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Tmac220 for shaing a bottle with me! Bottle. Poured a dark amber with minimal head. Aroma of bourbon with a bit of sweet fruit and perhaps a touch of malt. The flavor followed the aroma, but in my opinion was fairly dominated by the bourbon. It was definitely good, but I liked the BB Impy much better.

12 ounce bottle, red wax dipped thanks to Beau. Pours a mostly clear dark mahogany color with a small beige head. A big woody bourbon nose. Dark fruit, tobacco, flavors of vanilla, wood and bourbon, some heat, earthiness. Quite good. A big beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of bourbon, brown sugar, caramel, dark dried fruits, toasted malts and oak. Dark rusty amber hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left no lace. Flavor is very sweet and bitter. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Great Barley Wine that is balanced well with the bourbon. The aromas became much more complex as it warmed. Great one from Arcadia.
