On tap at the brewpub. Hazy amber brown beer. Low carbonation. Sweet thick barleywine with hints of vanilla wood. Very smooth indeed. Dangerously easy drinking!

3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 icky, sticky, oily and sweet. it’s in the vein of angels share and actually quite good... dumb luck or skill? heavy sweetness up front resembles port or port reduction... sweetened, candied plums and dates and other natural sugars give it some authenticity. bourbon character is sweet plum/brandy/dates with the sugar overpowering any wood character that could otherwise be noticed. it’s a big one and doesn’t hide it’s booze at all, but in small doses and as a dessert beer it’s quite good.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2007
2005 vintage on tap at the brewpub on 10/12/07: Pours an oily nearly opaque dark mahogany with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of complex sweet dark caramel and oaky bourbon with a lot of raisins and brown sugar. Body starts very full, rich and sweet with nice dark fruity complexity toward a dense oaky whiskey finish. Nicely balanced and well-aged with a touch of oxidized complexity.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Boulder Strong Ale Fest 2007. Head is fully diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel), with notes of bourbon, vanilla, alcohol, wood, cardboard, and maple syrup. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. The alcohol burn provides the bulk of the balance for the sweetness, and somehow it works. The aroma is complicated and mostly attractive, but tainted a bit by the oxidation. A pretty neat beer that has potential.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Big sweet aroma oak barrel and whiskey aroma. This was very sweet bourbon flavored with a big alcohol finish. This would be a perfect after dinner drink.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2007
GABF 2007: Poured a hazey deep brown color with a beige head. Fruity with milk chocolate make up the aroma. Bourbon and vanilla show up but blend so well. The flavor is full of fruit with some more notes of chocolate. Full bodied. This is smooth and warming but the alcohol takes a back seat. Yummy.
