2005 vintage on tap @ the BP. I like hot brews, but this one was perhaps too hot w/ whiskey. Very reminiscent of Alpine Great. Good, but a little too hot. Needs a little aging and it will be really good.

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.

ctipping (1256) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2016
500 mL bottle. Murky brown with a reddish tinge. Lots of bourbon. Very oaky and nutty bourbon aroma. Boozy and a little bit of brown sugar. Taste is also a ton of bourbon. Really strong bourbon and oak. Brown sugar behind it. Some vanilla in the back end. Lingering bourbon and booze. Medium heavy. Very boozy, but not very sweet, which I appreciate.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2007
2005 vintage served during the 2007 GABF. Solid black pour with no head. Nose of malt, chocolate, caramel, alcohol. Very smooth and a bit carbonated. Taste is sweet, chocolately, and the alcohol is well hidden for this monster beer. Almost too drinkable and dangerous.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Boulder Strong Fest 2010. Red/brown orange and black... this beer looked wild with almost no head. Aroma is sticky, sugary, pecan pie. Flavor is boiled down sugar water, peach, and other fruit. I burped pecan pie while drinking this. Brownie with nuts in flavor and burning booze. As it warms, a little too artificial cough syrupy, but not really. Similar texture though. Somehow still really awesome...top couple of this fest.

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!

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2007
On tap @ 5th Annual Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Definately one of the better barrel aged beers of the night. Balanced, it took on the character of the barrel (oak, vanilla, bourbon, coconut) and also the maltiness of the original beer, with hints of caramel and fruit. A nice brew.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours the color of bourbon, a clear dark reddish brown. Has a medium white head that thins out fast. Super thick pancake syrup. It’s a bit over the top with all the sweetness. I think this beer could benefit from more attenuation to a lower gravity or at least they could have used some really big-ass hops to balance out all the sugars.
