savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 12, 2012
22 oz bottle from deftim13, thanks again. Pours a murky rusty amber with a thick, beige head. Aroma of toffee, fruity esters, buttery/butterscotch brandy, oak and bread dough. Flavor is sweetish caramel malt, dates, vanilla, warming brandy and some light oak tannin. Medium body with a soft, oily mouth feel. Wow, this is really nice, seems like a great base beer that blends perfectly with the brandy barrel aging. Excellent Barley Wine.

j12601 (7000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle at a tasting at Jamesí place. Pours a hazed ruby brown amber with a medium beige tan head. Cocoa and chocolate, warm vanilla and wood. Medium to thick body, warm and smooth, a touch of sweetness and a bit of oxidization. Sweet and toasty, warm wood and more vanilla and sweetness. Very nice for a style I donít like much.

BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
A: Poured an amber color with good carbonation leaving a light dirty white cap S: That distinctive toofee, caramel like smell with some pine needles T/M: Mostly toffee and caramel with some Earthiness and wood. Some pine needles, lightly acidic and a subtle hop bitterness on the end. I really detcted no honey but felt it on the mouthfeel as it kept it sticky sweet and weighed on the tongue a bit. O: Good

Ibrew2or3 (7169) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Courtesy of dcschiller and peteinSD. Pours murky brown with amber hues and thin off white head. The aroma is smooth malts, smooth oak and caramel as well as light amounts of dark fruity esters. The taste has sweet dark fruity esters quickly sliding into sweet molasses, toffee and smooth subtle sweet bourbon and booze. Behind those notes I get a bit of vanilla and coconut sweetness. This is smooth and yummy with sweet dark fruity esters sending it into the finish.
