22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thin splotchy head.. Nose is bourbon and caramel with a hint of grass. Medium body but feeling a bit thin. Taste is caramel and bourbon with some hops in the finish. A touch metallic and woody.

Wow, this is all bourbon! I’m afraid it’s just overwhelmingly bourbon, lacking the complexity of a good barley wine style ale. The nose is rich with bourbon, brown sugar, and vanilla, but it lacks some key fruitiness. The flavor is very sweet and very bourbony. It’s missing the pepperiness and bite of a really good barley wine style ale. The sweetness borders on cloying, but the palate is too watery for the style to push it over the edge. Nevertheless it was fun to drink.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is a lot of bourbon and oak, with some brown sugar, maple and alcohol. There is no doubt that this beer was bourbon-barrel aged. The flavor is also heavy on the bourbon. I get a lot of maple, vanilla and brown sugar, as well as some bourbon and oak notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This was sampled alongside the cabernet barrel-aged version, and I thought this was the superior beer.

Bomber shared by maniac. Pours a murky dull orange with creamy khaki long lasting head. Nose is sweet vanilla and malty backbone. Flavor is woodsy light bourbon and residual foresty hoppy notes. Great sweet character. Rockin’ brew.

glennmastrange (2319) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of caramel and milk chocolate, moderate hop note of cooked orange, light earth for the yeast, with background notes of brown sugar, bourbon and alcohol. Head is small, frothy, off-white with some pretty good slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark murky brown. Flavor starts heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then the short finish is moderately bittersweet and lightly acidic. Palate is medium to full, creamy with a soft carbonation and finishes heavily alcoholic with a strong whiskey and coffee aftertaste. This beer really smells like a chocolate candy bar. Maybe a little to sweet and a touch watery in the end, but this is still a stand up Barley Wine.

Tmoney99 (11059) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Draft. Poured reddish brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, toasted malt, alcohol and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark fruit bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bourbon bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex standout beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bomber. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with a frothy fizzy head. Aroma is tons of caramel sweetness, earthy, hair, leather, oak, bourbon barrel, and some metallic hint with light herbal notes. Flavor is bourbon, oak, candy sugar sweetness, honey, toffee, toast, light burnt malts, ashy oak and old wood, and some astringency in the end with a light alcohol burn which comes from a thinning body in the end.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bomber courtesy of Fiver29 – thanks J! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a half finger light tan head. The nose is caramel, vanilla, dark fruits and sweet bourbon. The taste is oaky vanilla, molasses, toffee and bourbon. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff.
