Bottle @ RBWG on the Brewbus. Cheers to whoever shared this! Amber pour with a tight off-white head. Brown sugar and sweet candied red fruits. Pretty jammy. Some grape fruit rollups. Toffee and caramel, glazed donut. A touch of boozy heat. Flavor is hot and sweet. Sugary rich cereal graininess. Toasty. A bit of hot wood. Some dark red fruits dipped in caramel. Thick and flabby, oily. Pretty solid, but a bit hot, muscular.

Theydon_Bois (12869) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle during RBWG Booze Buse 20/02/15 thanks to whomever supplied this juan. Murky chestnut brown with a decent beige covering. Nose is rich malt, dark fruit shreds, booze fumes, barrel notes, spice, dates. Taste comprises fruit cake, toffee, dates, figgy jam, light spice, toasted brown sugar, hint of oxidisation creeping in. Full bodied, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close. Decent BA BW but perhaps starting to wain a little now.

DrSilverworm (8695) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2015
22oz bottle, tasted during RBWG bus tour. Towards the end of the bottle. Totally hazy red brown color. Thin off-wnite head, leaving decent bits of lace. Bigger body. More full feel. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation, sort of creamy and slick. Moderate sweet taste. Mild oxidization. Light bitter, mild warmth. Caramel, some barrel character, kind of spicy woody touch of apple. An alright barleywine.

Homer321 (2843) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle on the buse. Nose is candy with some dried fruit. Slightly sweet but still seemingly thin. Weird. Moderate carbonation with some alcohol warming. Nice.

Fritz123 (1352) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a deep murky brown with no real head. Flight at Aces and Ales in Vegas. Aroma of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and some booze. Taste was caramel, heavy malts, toffee, vanilla, and finishes boozy. No real brandy barrel present. Muted flavors. Medium to full body.

Rating from notes. Brown color. A little oxidation, medium sweet and a hint of hops. I didn’t taste brandy but it is a little hot on the palate.
