BMMillsy (1271) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2013
2011 bottle from Adam. thanks! Pours a deep murky amber with small khaki head.aroma of figs, plums, caramel, vanilla, and even a bit of bourbon and booze, though this isnít the BA version. Flavor is big fruits, mostly figs, some apple, raisins, bready, toffee biscuits. A hint of some booze. Yum. Creamy and heavy body, but with plenty of carbonation keeping this drinkable. Very nice beer, and only my 2nd from CW. I can definitely see this turning out beautifully in a bourbon barrel.

ineedbeer (663) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle from Dec. 2011. Aroma is fairly fruity with cherries, figs, and golden raisins. Moderate caramel note with a light amount of toasted bread. Hint of alcohol spice. Light treacle note. Pours a murky copper brown with some ruby notes and a thin tan head that quickly recedes leaving no lacing. Medium legs. Flavor is slightly sweet upfront but there is a moderate to moderately strong bitterness later in the palate. Moderate notes of raisins, figs, plums and cherries. Moderately strong caramel malt nots with a hint of toasted bread and a light roast character. Medium alcohol spice in finish with some lingering fruit notes, bitterns as and a touch of earthy hops. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium to medium low carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall a surprisingly nice barleywine with decent malt complexity and a nice fruitiness that compliments the caramel. Well balanced bitterness and alcohol notes.
