Rating #1931 - 2015.09.25 - 2015.09.25 Day 2, Beer 30 - Clear copper pour, bubbly head, not much lacing. Aroma is sweet orange rind, oak, vanilla, caramel. Taste is an alcoholic hoppy punch, lots of bitterness tempered with sweetness, and a ton of alcohol on the palate, but not thoroughly undisguised. Phenomenal.

The beer is dark brown, nearly black. Small light brown head. Just a thin layer of bubbles. Huge molasses and treacle aroma, rich and full. Big vanilla and coconut flavor from the barrel. Light cocoa note. Taste is full and sweet. Big smooth mouthfeel. Round, really coats the mouth. Giant caramel malt with darker, toastier malt backing. Very well integrated barrel flavor. Everything meshes together. Super rich. Really delicious stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Poured from 22 oz bottle. Aroma is rich with lots of dark caramel, toffee and treacle. Some light burnt sugar notes and touches of chocolate and roast. Light bourbon and faint oak notes with hints of spice. Light raisin an spring notes. Pours dark brown, but not quite black with some brown hues on the edges and a small, thin, tan head that disappears to the edges where a small, thin film lingers. Flavor is very sweet with lots of dark caramel, dark toffee and light chocolate notes. Hints of treacle and roast. Moderate bourbon notes with a medium light alcohol note. Light oak with hints of vanilla and coconut. Medium bitterness with a light spicy and woody hop note. Lingering alcohol spice with dark toffee and caramel. Some medium light raisin and prune notes. Mouthfeel is medium.full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice beer. Great malt notes with good alcohol and barrel presence. Some nice fruit notes compliment and add complexity. A dark, rich barleywine. Reminds me a bit of a fresh King Henry.

Best barleywine I've had. Complex, rich with a ton of brown sugar and bourbon. Nothing is too overpowering

Deep brown with a small pale head. Aroma is brown sugar, pecan, caramel, raisins. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, rich and boozy on the palate with a sweet warming finish. Taste is raisins, honey, brown sugar, dates. Yum.

Bottle. Colour... dark brown with a thin tan head. Nose... big, oaky, fruity and brooding. Palate...robust, taught and broad shouldered with great sweetness and dry, tannic oakiness. This one fumes with deep, dark dried fruits and heavy doses of whiskey. The palate is generally dry and tannic, but the fruit bears tremendous weight and makes for a voluptuous experience. The finish is long a immense.

Many thanks to my friend Matt for this great brew! Cheers buddy! Brew 1000 - 999e rating. Ce n’est pas une effronterie, je les évalue dans l’ordre où nous les avons bues et ça tombe comme ça. Je retrouve dans cette splendide bière tout et exactement tout ce que j’aime d’un barley wine. Liqude ambré qui pourrait facilement passer pour un scotch lorsqu’il coule du goulot à mon verre. Parfaitement translucide, aux reflets caramélisés et doux. Aucune mousse et ce ma convient parfaitement ainsi. Le liquide me confronte et je suis entièrement à sa merci. Des arômes de caramel, de fruits noirs et de fleur d’oranger. Des arômes qui me rappellent quelque peu les pâtisseries libanaises - le baklava par exemple. Un douce liqueur me coule en bouche transportant avec lui des saveurs en accord avec les arômes. Je suis ici plutôt du côté des fruits noirs et encore une fois du caramel. Un gâteau au fruits au Cognac, sans les habituelles épices de Noël qu’on retrouve dans ce type de gâteau. Une texture amincie par la barrique dont la présence est évidente. Un pur délice qui coupe parfaitement entre les bières sûres et acidulées!
