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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

6/29/13. 22oz bottle shared by cheesemoose during the epic BA barleywine tasting. Deep mahogany pour with a small khaki head. Rich BA aroma shows vanilla, wood, caramel, and toffee with a nice malty base with more caramel and dark fruits. Lightly sweet flavor with vanilla, toffee, oak, caramel, molasses, and dark fruits. Given the usual price for this stuff, it’s quite good!

Bottle shared with Chudwick the C.H.U.D. of the New York sewers. Whiskey shakes at the first sniff. I get some vanilla, brown sugar, and bourbon. My poor dog is having pushups done by his ass by a toddler. Remembering a time before children and friends‘ children and this thing called freedom that I never cherished enough, but should have. Do you remember a time? Like a child molester use to sing about.

Sample at Ale Alpharetta, brought by Drew. Cloudy, reddish brown, with a thin head. Big nose of vanilla and bourbon, butterscotch, pine, caramel, and oats. Very sweet, with a nice touch of bitterness. Heavy body, harsh, sticky, and thick. Nice, heavy, and incredibly flavorful beer.

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.

Bottle. Pours a dark cola color with slights off white head. Aroma is bourbon, barrel, brown sugar, dark fruit, and some melon. Taste is bourbon, brown sugar, sweet. Not as much fruit or barrel in the taste as in the aroma but still very good.
