First rate, cool. Tap at the brewery. Pours a shade darker and oranger than regular Fred. Flat looking, not much or no head. Peach pulp settled at the bottom. Aroma at first is straight bourbon. Nice but pretty much indistinguishable from Bourbon Fred. I think I get some fruitiness but might be placebo. As this warms the fruity peach aspects deepen and peaches are definitely there. Flavor is soft, fruity, low carbonation and smooth. Peach and bourbon both there. The fruitiness might cover up some complexities but this is super drinkable and about as sessionable as it gets for 10%+ bourbon barrel stuff.

TheAlum (6812) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Taster pour on tap at the brewery pub (Portnald, OR). Pours a hazy copper amber hue, a roasted apple carmelized cor with livelyt bubbles, hazy darker middle and a touch more butterscotch glow on the edges. A frothy whitish head atop stays as a nice ringer, retains in that form and laces ok. Aromas are richer potent spirit barrels, earth and gentle peach nectar. Wet wood, warmth and gentle caramel meet some Belgian yeasty appeal, gentle estery fruit and more oak. Richer barrel presence with peachy tea like element behind and spice. Initial is firmer bodied, sweet and spicy, esatery fruit and banana, pear, spicy yeast meet caramel malts, potent barrel feel is tannic, vanilla and wet wood. Gentle peach, a bit of pitty life with firmer wood, earth and spicy Belgian yeasty appeal cutting through that potent vanilla and coconut appeal. Firmer spirit is warm but not unyielding, working well with the bigger base beer in the end. A bit of apple, gentle peach elements taper out with big vanillin appeal on the palate, woody and raw. This doesn’t end up hot but ends up very oak slanted, a bit punchy. An agressive beer in the end tempered by an agressive oak stance, gentle peach, more influence from the spicy and fruity Belgian yeast appeal beneath. Pretty pour and potent nose leads into a big beer but certainly a palateable experience with that distinct Hair of the Dog appeal. Good stuff.

Vestergaard (1390) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
On tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2015 day 2. Pours a semiclear amber with fruit meat and a tiny, oily head. Aroma has overripe peach, fermented fruit, caramel, booze, acidic fruityness, peach, bourbon, stone fruit pits, slight hops. Taste is sweet, sour, bitter, not hoppy but pithy bitter. Flat, fruity and weird... and maybe slightly bad as well. Oily body and no carbonation.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2015 Geproefd tijdens Borefts 2015. Donkergeel/amberkleurig bier, vrijwel geen schuimkraag. Aroma van karamel, gedroogde perzik en bourbon. Het smaakpallet is bijzonder, met tonen van; bourbon, vanille, eikenhout en perziken. De afdronk is opvallend krachtig met warme bourbon tonen en een zachte houtige finish, ook vrij weinig koolzuur. Ook deze Barley Wine van Hair of the Dog is weer erg goed.---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale brown. Hazy. Aroma and flavour are very woody and dry. Light fruity sweetness, some vanilla. Wood taste feels a bit raw.
