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.

From a bottle poured a dark brown/black color with very little head. Strong sweet malty flavor with a lasting finish.

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.

douglas88 (6018) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2013
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.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2013
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.

Draft to snifter at Arcadia. Looks good; a mostly opaque brownish-black with beige lacing. Smells good too; sweet and boozy. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Good stuff, and will definitely improve with age.
