Bottle thanks to someone! Pours a cloudy amber brown with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a decent amount of barrel with sweet grains and a bit of booze. Flavor has a good amount of sweet grains with some barrel and a bit caramel.

This poured a rub red color with a beige head. Aroma was of light brandy, some fruit notes, and caramel and toffee malts. Flavor was a little odd, somewhat vegetal, like the brandy tasted like beats, with a standard barleywine underbelly.

Dark brown color and light brown head. Nose of brown sugar, honey, orange, caramel, soft oak and brandy. Orange really dominates the taste in a good way. Soft notes of brandy, sugar, oak, and fruits. Medium bodied and subtle sweet. Also in a good way. Orange and honey smooth out the beer quite well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

corby112 (2704) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2012
2011 vintage. Pours a dark chocolate brown color that’s completely opaque with a one finger yellowish-beige head that quickly settles into a thin lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. The aroma of this beer is pretty complex with brandy barrel elements blended with dark fruit, earthy spice, citrus and leathery malt. Some dry, earthy oak, vanilla and a really prominent brandy character. Some boozy sweetness with hints of molasses, caramel apple, date, fig and raisin followed by leathery malt notes and subtle spice. Smells great. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and perfectly integrated brandy barrel flavor. Some dry, toasted oak, coconut, sweet brandy and vanilla followed by dark fruit, leathery malt and sweet booze. Hints of caramel, molasses and toffee along with some fig, plum, raisin and faint citrus. There’s some leathery malt toward the finish but the sweetness from the brandy, spices and honey overshadows it a bit. Just a touch of boozy warmth after the swallow but the high ABV is excellently masked. It’s hard to believe that this beer is 11%. A bit on the sweet side but really flavorful and dangerously drinkable.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours deep, murky brown with tan head. Aroma of maple, peppery alcohol, toasted malt and dark fruit esters, old wood. Flavor is very much the same with a sweetness and faint fruity tartness. Heavy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Overall, solid brew!

(Bottle) Pours deep nut brown with a pale nougat coloured head. The flavour holds sweet cocoa, robust caramel, toffee, sticky dried fruits, nuts, meat, earth, vanilla, soft wood, medicine, brandy and honey candy. Soft and round yet a bit fiery on the nose. The flavour is near medium sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic with cocoa, chocolate, nuts, toffee, caramel, dried fruits, vanilla, brandy, earth, mud, tobacco, meat and a touch of honey. The mouthfeel is round, smooth, velvety, creamy and light fiery numbing with a light carbonation. Malty and light brandy oaky finish. Medium to full bodied.

Bomber courtesy of Marsiblursi. Pours deep ruby reddish brown with a small creamy nougat head that slowly dissipates while leaving some lacing on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet and malty with sweet bread, alcohol, wood, butterscotch, lemon zest, dusty cocoa powder, resinous wood, dusty hay, roasted nuts and vanilla fudge. Taste is sweet and slightly bitter with sweet dark bread, burning alcohol, butterscotch, wood, lemon zest, brandy, vanilla, coconut, golden syrup, caramel and hints of toffee. Mouthfeel is smooth, soft, creamy, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny bitter with sweet bread, alcohol, caramel, wood, vanilla fudge, coconut and toffee. Bit too boozy but still very nice...
