adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle in Chicago with TheAlum. Thanks Adam! Pours a murky orangish brown appearance with a thin off white head. Moderate bourbon, toffee, light molasses, mild vanilla, a bit woody aroma. Thick sweet bourbon, big toffee, fairly sweet, vanilla, a touch fruity, lightly spicy rye flavor. Tasty beer! Thanks Adam!

Very dark plum color. Almost flat and the cap was insanely rusted! Smells very tannic almost like a tawny port. Lots of grapes and fruity notes. No bitterness on the nose. Taste is pretty darn good. Fruity, lots of esters and cloves and honey. This is the sweetest barley wine I’ve ever had. Bourbon notes are subdued with a hint of vanilla.

Scopey (8474) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle via trade, shared at Bruce’s. It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is raisin, dried fig, earth, wood, vanilla, toasted coconut, cherry skin, dirt and cocoa. The taste is smooth, earth, raisin, warming alcohol, raisin,figgy pudding, plum, prune, vanilla and oak with warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and slightly oily mouth-feel. All comes together rather well. Top quality barley wine.

Thanks to Sarlacc83 for sharing this barleywine - Pours bronze / brown with a small off-white head. The aroma has lots of dark caramel, red fruits, licorice and cherries that are lush, but a bit biting. It has a medium / full rich body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor begins with alcohol heat, caramel, brown sugar, lots of dark fruits, oak, graininess and rough earthiness. The finish is warm and that works for it. Solid barleywine.

Draft at FoBAB 8. Pours a slightly murky brown/bronze with sticky head. Nose is robust with well integrated bourbon notes, spicy rye and a robust caramel character. Nice spicy hops as well. On taste, full body that supports a decent enough level of bitterness. Vanilla and oak comes through with a bit of marshmallow as well. Pretty damn nice beer.

Bottle from TXJeep.
Pours a coke brown with coke-esque carbonation. Nose is musty bournon and staunchy chocolate. Flavor is deep bourbon, tobacco, and oak. Thick on the tongue. Great beer.

Thanks Todd! The beer pours to a really deep mahogany body with a nice creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet with lots of rye, some chocolate, and peppery spice with vanilla. The flavor is deeply malty rye with a caramel and subtle tobacco. Vanilla with toffee. Medium full body that’s got a lingering sweetness.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with thin, fizzy beige head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, bourbon, smoke, dark fruit, earthy notes, and maple. Flavor is balanced malt and dark fruit esters with supporting woody notes; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.
