COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An old English style barleywine, this deep reddish-hued beer smells of dark dried fruits and toffee. Hints of vanilla and oak round out the full malt flavor, with a lingering mild bitterness. Enjoy before or after dinner in front of a fire in your favorite arm chair.

Bottle... Not sure when this was bottled, but could definitely tell there was some age here. Poured cloudy near opaque, dark amber, red with a thin forming, light tan head. Aroma had some oxidation with a sweet tea tone as well. Mild oxidation, sweetened black tea notes, date and prune-like fruits with a hint of bourbon soaked wood. Caramel sweetness, quite sweet actually, along with some alcohol warmth that lingered in towards the finish.

Location: Sampled at TapNY, 4/26/14

Aroma: The nose is heavy bourbon, with some toffee malts, vanilla, and caramel
Appearance: The pour is brown, with a red hue, a beige-brown head and average lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, heavy on the bourbon with some strong malt flavors as well
Palate: The body is medium, with a decent amount of ABV burn, but somehow remains drinkable
Overall Impression: They called this Jack Daniel’s Aged at the festival. I actually quite enjoyed this one. There’s a ton of bourbon on the nose, taste, and feel, but it is surprisingly drinkable considering how strong the bourbon is.

Bottle. Poured a dark, amber color with some small wispy tan head. Aroma is sweet, vanilla, bourbon, some tart notes? Bourbon, tart soured, wood. Wish I could like this more. Some alcohol, but rounded out. Probably soured a bit.

Bottle, caramel colored pour, pretty light body. Sweet booziness, lighter Bourbony notes, malt heavy. Light mouthfeel. Ok

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
2013-08-16. Crisp mahogany brown body with a modest tan head. 3++ Aroma is sweet with sugary malt character, notes of raisins and caramel. 7+ Flavour is sweetly malty, mild bourbon in the background. Sort of an English character to the malt. Smooth average plus bodied palate. 3+ Enjoyable but the base beer comes off as overly simple, which means that there is not a lot going on besides malt and bourbon despite a fairly restrained bourbon character.Bottle At Campground Brewdown.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2013
From the February 2013 3R6P tasting. My favorite beer of the night!+++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a brown color with orange highlights and a large foamy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was woody with sweet caramel, honey, bourbon and vague fruity hops. The flavor was bourbon, wood, coconut, pineapple, berries and vanilla. Wonderfully full of flavor and complex. Long wood, vanilla and pineapple finish. Moderately full bodied. Marvelous.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours a deep dark ruby red with a small beige head. Aroma of bourbon barrels, dark dried fruits, especially dates and prunes, brown sugar, and some slight nail polish scents. Flavour is dominated by prunes, plums and dates / figs; the bourbon barrels are not overly prominent, but there is some noticeable heat from the booze. Quite fruity from the prunes ,with a relatively low complexity considering the style. Still, a nice warming sipper
