UPDATED: MAR 5, 2015 Draft at Il Forno in Frederick, MD. Served in a classic pils glass (!?), hazy tannish dark brown color with thin tan head. Aroma notes of heavy malt sweetness, dark fruit, caramel, oak, vanilla, light chocolate and bourbon. Taste adds notes of toffee, molasses, apple, dried fruits, smoke and earthy hops. Heavy body, low carbonation, creamy, rich with sweet caramel-like finish. Not boozy at all, heavy bourbon and sweet malt notes. Pretty tasty.

Donít know where to start, so much going on. Caramel, toffee, wood, bourbon, warmth. Nice creamy thick head and lacing. Makes my lips tingle.

Strong Bourbon character on the nose. Appearance is very dark brown with a small tan head with poor retention. Flavor is full of bourbon and oak with notes of chocolate. Roast character is smooth. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a well made bourbon barrel stout. Bourbon flavors are high now, but with age they will blend in with the beer. It's a good beer to age.

Aroma of bourbon, oak and caramel. Appearance is a cloudy brown with a medium sized white head. Bourbon flavor is strong. Oak is in support. Malt contains some hints of caramel. Medium fruity esters. Hop bitterness is high which provides some citrus notes. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium low carbonation. Alcohol warmth is present and strong. Overall, there is too much bourbon flavor and not enough malt complexity.

Really tasty and drinkable barleywine. Carmel taste up front, then the wood, and a tasty sticky hop finish.

Been a while since really enjoying a bourbon barreled anything. But this one worked. Pour was orangey brown, thin head that dissipated to about nothing, thin ring around the edges, weak lacing. Aroma of bourbon, toasted caramel, citrus, vanilla, oak sawdust. Flavor followed, fruity character and raisins, slight smoke, good bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel moderate for the style, well short of sticky to which was appreciated. Good stuff.

Loved this Thanks PinkZambia for sharing. Terrific bourbon barleywine flavors and a smooth soft palatte. Alittle more bite at the end. Probably even better after 6 months in the basement
