cfrancis (2728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
On tap at Aces and Ales. Pours pitch black with a small mocha head. Aroma is big raisin, sweet rum and light roasted malts. Taste is rich roasted malts with sweet raisins and plums. Add in the punch from the sweet rum barrels and dry oak. This thing packs a whallop.

trevor211 (1437) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Tap at Beer Junction. Ruddy brown. Sticky nose. Vanilla, rum, oak-heavy. Boozy, but huge and covers fairly well. Quite tasty, and aptly named.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Sample at the Aces & Ales Winter Beer Fest on 01/18/2015. The beer is a dark mahogany-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of rum, malt and hops. Full-bodied with flavors of vanilla, rum, raisins and malt. The finish is sweet with a rum and vanilla aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Draft. Spiced notes, rum notes, thick caramel booziness, a very nicely done rum barrel barleywine.

skmikeg (1357) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Pours a dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of rum, stone fruits, molasses, caramel, oak, and light booze. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some oak and light vanilla notes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice barley wine that is smooth compared to the original three sheets and is pretty tasty with some nice rum notes.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Cola brown pour, still in the glass, khaki head that fades to a thin ring. Complex nose if rum soaked oak, merlot, and corn syrup. It actually reminds me a lot of Utopias but not as robust. Taste resembles the aroma quite a bit but not as sweet as I ha expected. Rum, oak, and sugar in the raw on white toast. Ruby Port wine-like finish.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2013
At Old Grove. 1st non-California rate! Pours a burnt caramel color with a soapy khaki head. Aroma is rum, vanilla, raisin, candied sugar. Taste is sweet and bitter. Definitely hot. Medium bodied and sticky . The batch was from 2010, but it was still hot. Could be awesome, but it needs to chill.

gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Taster at home brew. Pours dark brown with just a touch of red. Little ring of white foam edges the glass. Aroma is sweet barley malts, rum, and candy cane, nice bitterness, a little bit of something like anise in there, a real helping of black licorice. Good, bt again, 4 oz taster is enough.

JohnnyJ (4944) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Draft at Stone Oakquinoz 2012. Amber pour. Toffee, sweet rum fruits, oak, raisin, caramel, and vanilla. A very nice barrel aged barleywine.
