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.

Bottle during RBWG 2015 in Tampa. Hazy amber color. Aroma of butterscotch, vanilla. Taste is boozy butterscotch.

Homer321 (4177) - 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 (1535) - 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.

JK (5665) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2014
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.

Bomber. Murky brown amber pour with a small head. Oak, caramel sweetness. Some prune. Smooth palate. Nice!

TURDFERGUSON (4043) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle (i guess) at rrbf. This was actually really tasty. Rich brandy notes mix well with the traditional big brown sugar bw notes which have faded a bit from the age on this beer. Really nice, sweet but not cloying flavor that was a welcome dose of sweetness ( dare i say) in a festival littered with sour beers.

alobar (3502) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Dark murky brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, brandy, fig, honey, and vanilla. Well-balanced and complicated flavor with brown sugar, orange, honey, fig, raisin, and some vanilla. Very nice beer.

Prufrockstar (1967) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle shared by 5000 -- thanks! Pours a murky dark brown with offwhite head. Aroma of old beer, brandy, raisins, dark fruit, (prune, fig) brown sugar. Vanilla. Taste: thick and sweet, dark fruit and honey; light bitter finish. Palate: Slick, oily, full body.
