COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning barley wine which has been aged two ways – in wooden bourbon barrels and Cabernet barrels. It will benefit with aging.

Smells sweet like a barley wine, but also has the bourbon nose. Nice red pour with a small white head. Has the barley wine sweetness without any hops really to balance it. The bourbon is thrown on top. Not sure it works, but it’s good enough.

Growler from Cumming Growler Shop. Pours a dark red with a white frothy head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, fruit esters. Nice alcohol warmth that isn’t overwhelming. Bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruits dominate taste. Hints of oak. A little too light bodied. Expected more of a full body. A bit of an oily texture. Subtle lingering bitterness on the finish with a slight resinous taste.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pours red-brown with a thick white head. Aroma is lots of bourbon, some dark fruit and vanilla. Not real complicated, lots of bourbon. Taste is led by bourbon, some dark fruit, some vanilla, some spicy and herbal notes. Mostly that bourbon. I would have liked a bit more complexity, flavor-wise. The bourbon dominated this for me. Wasn’t the barley wine that I was hoping for. Still, I enjoyed it; very drinkable.

Westmeister (2061) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a murky ruby/brown with minimal off white head. Smell is bold creamy vanilla, oak, big sweetness -delicious. Taste is marzipan, vanilla, booze, lite dark fruits, oak. Booze comes thru both in taste and going down. Overall nice but too boozy for 10%,

From tap. Bourbon and oak aroma. Sweet bourbon taste with a sligh amount of bitterness and hop flavor adding bite. Great mouthfeel.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Aroma is all bourbon notes: vanilla, creme egg, oak and slight hazelnut. Pours deep red/brown with a small foamy lace. Taste is big with lots of bourbon notes, mostly oak and vanilla with just a hint of root beer. Strong booze feel but the taste compliments. Pretty solid.

Iphonephan (4306) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On cask at rustico Arlington. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin off white head. Bourbon and vanilla nose. Sweet and boozy with luscious dark cherry, raisin and toffee notes. Warming alcohol finish. A winner for a cold winter day.

Bottle. Pouts darker brown had small head didn’t stick around much. Taste smell booze vanillia caramel wood smoke sweet dark fruits. Not too bitter which was nice. Just so thin got boring. Would like some texture. But good stuff middle road.

Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Oak and bourbon. Vanilla. Light body. A bit boozy overall. Not bad, but want more body.
