Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a hazy orange-yellow color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, malt and hops. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit, oak and resiny hops. The finish is subtle booze and piney hops. Pretty good overall.

This one poured a hazy light orange color with a white head. Big vanilla, and caramel and wood upfront. Taste was similar, lots of oak and vanilla with mild lemon zest notesd too. Solid BA barleywine.

Draft. The pour is pretty light, more orangish than anything. The aroma is heavy sweet bourbon, warming. The taste is big upfront, very warning. Vanilla tones. A nice bourbon american barleywine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GABF 2013. Pours a hazy yellow-orange appearance with no head (first 1/5 appearance I’ve dropped in a long time but it looked plain bad). Caramel, plum, bourbon in the nose. Pretty fucken smooth flavor despite being 12.5 on the booster scale - lots of bourbon, caramel, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, and wood. A bit sweet but overall a chinchillin beer.

Claires right hook ba barleywine. 12oz pour at the hay... Pours a deeper shade if caramel toffee brown pour and topped with a thin to medium off-white head that quickly dissipates... Aroma of vanilla, bourbon and thick chewy caramel malt to go alongside a dirty earthiness ... Chewy and boozy with big on caramel and toffee accentuated malt. Dark fruits surface along with a boozy bitterness. Thick and very barrel forward. Sweetness gets somewhat medicinal to a point before some harsh bitter astringency towards the finish. 7/4/7/3/14

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Draft sample. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy tropical fruit, bourbon and sweet malt aroma. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Full complex bourbon and sweet malt with a long complex finish with a small alcohol bite of long duration. This is a standout brew.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at the brewpub on Dec. 6, 2011. Clear reddish amber pour with minimal head. Killer aroma and taste of bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Awesome.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear amber colored body with a finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and bourbon with some oaky vanilla. There is still a nice citrus hopping in there too. Flavor is similar. Caramel and bourbon up front with oaky vanilla. The hops come out a bit at the end as this finishes with some vanilla-caramel-bourbon and wood that dries with a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a fairly full, smooth body and a mod carbonation. Overall, a pretty nice barrel-aged barley wine. Lots of bourbon but enough of a caramel and hop presence to keep it balanced. Nice beer.
