mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma brings out loads of caramel, oak, toffee, and residual sugars. Flavour is complex and well-balanced, with a wonderful mix of caramel, alcohol, oak, and candied sugar. By no means too sweet for a barley wine. Excellent balance, not too boozy and very elegant. Great barley wine.

Frikin’ Alex scores a growler of this, damn. Thanks buddy. Pours mahogany with tan head. The aroma is oak then dry oak and then moving toward bourbon, some vanilla, and a light amount of dark fruitiness, caramel and then more oak along with a touch of wine. The taste is sweet with dark fruity goodness, aged oak, vanilla and then some wine and caramel notes mixed together. A growing oak note is noticed off in the background as it approaches the finish. Yummy stuff.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2010
Wonderful nose full of jammy syrah, brown sugar, bourbon vanilla, underlying dark fruity notes. Solid sweet barleywine underneath. Dark auburn pour, creamy beige head. Awesome red hues. Amazing notes of syrah and bourbon barrel. Jam, brown sugar, vanilla, wood. Dark sweet fruity notes. Vanilla rounds out the finish. Solidly carbonated. Sweet but very well balanced as some solid hop bitterness comes through. A really amazing beer all the way through. Love the balance that the syrah/bourbon creates. Thanks Torry. I owe you man!

On tap at Stone Oakquinox 2010. Not sure if this is the correct barrel aged version, but it did have bourbon notes, so I think this is correct. Pours a dark brown amber. Sweet malt, dried fruit, oak, bourbon, caramel, and earthiness. Pretty good, although I’m not a huge fan of three sheets.
