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.

22 oz. bottle. unsure vintage thanks to Adam Jackson. Thanks buddy. Dirty brown color. Nose is mostly rye whiskey and alcohol. Flavor is pretty complex. Caramel raisins, licorice, caraway seeds and rye whiskey. Has almost a pumpernickel bread bite to it as well. Alcohol is not distracting in the flavor and the texture is smooth. Real nice Barley wine.

Bottle from trade, extra from Deyholla, thanks, Derek! Pours the color of black coffee with a scant off white head. Aromas of raisin, bourbon, caramel, a touch of spice. Taste is earthy sweet dark caramel malts, some mineral, then oak, vanilla and rye in the finish.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
22 oz. bottle, sent from deyholla (thanks a lot, Derek), pours a dark mahogany with a very small off-white head. Nose brings out loads of rye and spicy caraway seed upfront, along with wood bourbon barrels following. Flavour is a bourbon bomb, but not in a boozy way, with loads of bourbon barrels upfront. The rye and caraway are barely noticeable, except perhaps in counteracting any residual sweetness. Complex and certainly well-made. An elegant barley wine, drinkable in smaller amounts.

Theydon_Bois (7898) - 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.

Clear medium brown body under a tan head. Aroma is complex with all of the usuals. Alcohol. Flavor that follows the aroma.

pantanap (3349) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2010
sampled at fobab 2010... pours a reddish caramel brown with a soapy light beige head... aroma of wood and vanilla, bourbon up front followed up with softer dark fruits and caramel. a bit of spicy bread in the background.. flavors of dark-fruit and toffee with a light spicy woodiness coming from the barrel and rye malt. not overly assertive from a bourbon barrel aspect which is nice and welcoming. softer smooth body and carbonation.
