On tap at Beer Revolution. I tasted this right after the Jack n Jolly and this was very similar only without the bitter hoppy finish. It pours brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is cocoa, bourbon, sweet vanilla and toffee. The flavor is chocolate, wood, bourbon. The finish is sweet and nutty. This reminds me of the old Drakes barrel aged barleywines that you used to be able to get in the nip bottles! Those were amazing, especially with a couple years of age on them. I really hope they release this in bottles to cellar because I can only imagine how good it would be in 2 years or so.

Sampled on 2/17/2011 on tap at Beer Revolution. This Barley Wine/American Strong Ale pours a medium brown color with some ruby highlights from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel, raisins, dates, wood and bourbon. A medium to full bodied Barley Wine. The malts are caramel, dark fruit, raisins and brown sugar. The hops are citrusy. Good carbonation. Nice wood and bourbon flavors. Very smooth tasting, very full and round mouthfeel. Touch of alcohol throughout. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a touch of alcohol. Love to be able to taste this one after some bottle aging.

Pours deep ruddy brown with thin cream colored head. Huge nose and flavor of vanilla, dried fruit and toffee. Well rounded and smooth mouthfeel.
