msante79 (2215) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Finally cracked the lone bomber I had at DLD 2010. Pours dark mahogany with very small tan head. Aroma is loaded with bourbon, caramel, sweet malts, and some vanilla. Flavors of bourbon, wood, caramel, thick sweet malts, some hops, and a bit of booze. Mouthfeel was thick but not overly syrupy. Barrel really adds a nice complexity to the base beer which is quite sweet. Really enjoyed this beer and wish I had another bottle.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2010
Sample at DLD 2010. Poured a reddish brown with some khaki head. Carmelish nose with some resiny hops. Thick but easy to drink. Glad I finally got to try this.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Poured an opaque brown. Aroma has some agressive hops with a bit of dark fruit as well. Taste is quite heavy on dark fruit and also some cakebread-type sweetness. Aftertaste has some bitterness that was more present on the aroma with a bit of molasses thrown in as well. A thoroughly enjoyable american style barley wine with a good bit of muscle but also not nearly as agressive as some others.

Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Near clear dark copper brown with ring of tan head. Extremely woody. Bourbon notes. Tons of vanilla. and EXTREMELY sweet. Almost too sweet. The hop spiciness helps to balance. But definitely enjoyable, and I imagine this would mellow quite nicely. Cool name and bottle.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
(Sample Date: 4/17/2010 Source:BrewEngineer) Dark fruits and caramelized sugars. Classic aroma. Clear dark copper golden with little head. Caramel with notes of wood and lots of sweet vanilla. Finish is sweet with hefty bitterness. Alcohol warming is subtle but perceptible. Excellent.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Deep amber, clear, little head. Rich caramel aroma, a little bit of anise hops presence as well. Flavor is beautifully thick and rich caramel malts, a little bit of bread as well. Finish is anise, pine tar hops, but faint. Really, really good stuff. The oak and barrel are very faint on the finish, but present and integrated. Awesome stuff really.

TheEpeeist (3539) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2010
22 oz bottle. My rating #1600 and my 100th Barley Wine. Clear crimson brown with a few bubbles. Nose a luscious caramel and bourbon melange with hints of vanilla and grass. Soft medium body with a gentle sparkle. Taste delivers on the nose with caramel, vanilla, cardamom and bourbon beautifully blended showing port-like complexity. Dry woody finish with a hint of burnt sugar. Likely will continue to improve with age.

markwise (4750) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2010
Sample at RBWG thanks to Maltzilla. Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. Nose is raisin, malt, caramel, brandy, dates, vanilla, maple, and barrel. Flavor is similar with tons of sweetness, vanilla, caramel, and balanced barrel. One of the best.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle at RBWG. Pours brownish color with red highlights and minimal lacing. Nose has lots of heat from the bourbon with a fair amount of oak, vanilla and caramel. Flavor has thick, sinuous caramel and lots of bourbon-soaked wood and oak, vanilla and dark fruits in the finish. Full-bodied, intense but still surprisingly drinkable. Good stuff.
