From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep copper color with a thin white head. Nose is malty, alcohol, figs, banana. Taste is medium bodied, sour with some sweet parts as well. Finishes crisp. I'm not too seasoned with barley wines, however I figure this one is an ok one by standard. Excited I get to know this genre a little more ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Bluebonnet Brew-off. Poured a clear dark amber with a cream top. Taste of oak, bourbon, vanilla esters, and sweet caramel malts. Medium carbonation, Thick body. Wow, this brew is the damn good!

Nice amber brown with an off white head. Slight caramel aroma that was also detected on the tongue. Malty throughout with a sharp bitter woody finish. Not as smooth as most barleywines

A sweet, sweet barleywine that mainly has notes of those process brach’s caramels.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep amber/copper color with a medium plus sized beige head. The aroma has sweet caramel malts, bourbon, vanilla, wood and a slight tart character. The flavor is decent overall; caramel, bourbon, vanilla and wood with hints of dark fruits. The bitterness was a little more than I would like at the back.

Well balanced. Sweet caramel, and very light bourbon, which is the way I like it. Sweet aroma.

Boy, this one’s been sitting in the cellar for a wicked long time. I forgot it was there and when discovering it figured it wasn’t going to get any better. Medium copper pour, some carbonation remaining, although it tends to look a bit flat and grumpy. Evident tartness in the nose made me think wrong things. But surprisingly, the flavors are neither infected nor especially over the hill. Moderate wood and bourbon in there to complement what was at least at one point a boisterous West Coast BW. Malty and faded but still decent.

Draught@brewpub (Portland, OR, ABV 9.2 %)
Dark chestnut color, steady brownish head. Malty, sweet fruity, chocolate cake aroma. Medium-bodied. Quite alcoholic. Malty, dark fruits, rye bread, alcohol and late strong hoppyness. Quite hoppy barley wine with better drinkability than ABV indicates.

Cloudy brown beer. Softish palate leading to a dry finish. Inbetween is chocolatey malt with a woddy edge. Sour bourbon underpins. Not bad but some of that barrel vanilla sweetness would not have gone amiss.
