Marsiblursi (3005) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
(Bottle) Pours hazy deep reddish brown with a nougat coloured head. The aroma holds deep tones of creamy caramel, dried prunes, sticky raisins, aggressive oak (vanilla, coconut and wood shop), spicy rye (almost minty bubblegum-ish), bread and hops with a couple of years on the neck (in the bottle). The flavour is medium to heavily sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of dried fruits, fat caramel, bubblegum-ish rye, extreme white American oak, and resinous/earthy hops. The mouthfeel fat, creamy and numbing with a light to medium carbonation. Fat finish. Near full bodied.

_angst_ (2786) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
Bomber received in trade. Thank you rfraga7! Pours hazy reddish brown with a thin offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, toasted coconut, charred wood, chocolate fudge, alcohol and hints of sassafras and sweet rye bread. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter and malty with caramel, toffee, charred wood, toasted coconut, bourbon, sassafras, black pepper corns, sweet dark bread, raisins, prunes, vanilla fudge and hints of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is soft, velvety, slightly boozy, very tiny astringent and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and malty with caramel, toffee, charred wood, toasted coconut, sweet rye bread, vanilla fudge, cocoa powder and hints of sassafras. Luxurious and tasty barrel aged barley wine.

jackl (4610) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Hazy brownish pour with a modest off-white head. Big chewy toffee nose. Vanilla and coffee creamer. Chocolate sundae. Some dark fruit flavors. Raisin cake, prunes. More sweet chocolate with a bit of ashy roasted malts. Pretty rich and fat, oily. Not a game changer, but a really well-done example of the style. Great.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Big thanks to Paulinho. Hazy amber - brown beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is a little soft, fine carbonation. Rich bourbon and vanilla oak. Bourbon spice. Caramel malt underneath. Trace of coconut. Light spicy finish. Nicely joined up.

Theydon_Bois (8727) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle split at Bruces pad, big thanks to Scopey of Croydonia for this winner, 12/06/14. Mahogany brown/dark amber with a moderate beige swirl that retains well and makes tree shapes! Nose is big candied sugars, ripe dark fruit matter, bourbon wood tinges, toffee fudge, spice. Taste comprises light booze notes, toffee, dates, prunes, dark fruit wash, hint of coconut a la bourbonics, candyfloss. Medium + body, fine carbonation, rich feel. Solid barley wine, well balanced BA and drinks below the ABV.

Oakes (12627) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Hazy amber, the aroma is rich rye and bourbon, dark plummy and dried fruit character. Smells intense, even with alcohol blasting in late. Big sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, rich, lots of caramel, intense, raisiny fruity.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy dark amber to mahogany color with small head. Huge aroma, malt and bourbon, pungent, resiny, a bit dusty, nutty, some tobacco; like beers that were modern in the mid 2000’s. Full bodied, with round mouthfeel; malty, even a bit chocolatey, sweet, bold; the barrel introduces some acidity, which helps; warm alcohol feeling.
Great one.
