HighWine (941) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. Batch 406 bottled on 2/15/11. Label says 2010 and 13.8% ABV. Maple pour with an extremely short lived beige head. No lacing. Dark brown sugar aroma. Full flavor but unusual. I get strong dark licorice in my mouth with sweetness. Maple flavors come forward but that could be residual effects from my contemplating the color. there’s some hop and roastiness flavors coming through now, along with booze. The brown sugar comes forward after the sip is gone. Interesting. Complex is too string of a word. I’d stick with unusual...but good.

Bottle - 330ml. Dark amber body with an average beige frothy head. Complex malty/hoppy aroma with fruity, woody, and some subtle vanilla hints. Robust hoppy taste with fruity and piney notes. Ends with a long, strong, warming bitter finish. Very well done!

Dated 07/2009. Muddy caramel with scant beige head / Nose of cooked fruit and bourbon / Medium to full body, sweet and somewhat syrupy, but with some hop balance, and long finish / Flavors of caramel, coconut, cooked orange and grapefruit, dates, raisins, oak, and bourbon / An interesting, mellow old thing, possibly lacking the brighter flavor profile of the best, but still a treat.

briggatebeer (7) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2012 does not count
Full-some barley wine collaboration beer... Fairly good looking beer, nothing really in terms of head unfortunately. What was there disappeared fast but of course the density of the beer and the alcohol content explain this sufficiently. Nose is a little disappointing for a beer of this complexity - it’s all in the taste really which doesn’t disappoint. It’s multilayered in a pleasing way and is something that quite a few brewdog beers fail to achieve! Sweet dark toffee, caramel and really nice latte notes which are subtle enough so as not to dominate. Velvety texture is sliced through with warm alcohol and then relatively clean grapefruity, hoppy bitterness. There’s not a great deal of length but all round a pretty interesting barley wine.

Smurf2055 (1293) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Pours ruby, head leaves very quickly. Very faint smell. Balanced and fruity with a prickly sensation. Sits well. Bit of a boozy taste. I wasn’t blown away by it, but it’s pretty good.

Dixonian (1558) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle - 2010 vintage. Cloudy amber pour with a sparse off-white head. Grassy hops, peat, toffee, and oak aromas. Doesn’t taste as good as it smells - smokey and malty with some citrus and caramel.
