Draft. Bocktown. Mahogony ruby color. I love oak aged beers and this one is up to the task. Beautiful oak aroma with some caramel and slight fruit. Same with the taste. Just beautiful oaked flavors compliment this beer. Complex. Well done.

22 oz Bomber-Brownish pour w/good lacing. Bourbon aroma. Flavors of wood chips, Bourbon Barrels, some peat....mostly Bourbon. Solid brew, enjoyable.....not as good as the Cabernet Barrell, but good. Long Finish.

dark caramel color, small head and not much lacing... notes of vanilla, butterscotch, caramel, some dark fruit, candied goodness both on the nose and tongue... low carbonation, full bodied and syrupy, almost port-like...

UPDATED: APR 26, 2012 2011 bottles served at cellar temp. Sent as an extra from ygtbsm94. Awesome. A - Dark brown with a reddish hue. Thick off-white head turns to some nice lacing. The lacing retention is fantastic. S - Sweet malts, slight oak, slight vanilla. T - Much like the aroma. Sweet malts, dark fruits, then hints of vanilla and sweet oak push through. Very smooth throughout. There is a little bit of a drag in the flavor before the barrel picks up. The vanilla/caramel/oak almost shows a candy-like flavor from middle to end. The finish gives the slightest amount of heat and dryness, but is fairly smooth. P - Medium, feels a little thicker and has some carbonation. Pretty nice. O - Good flavors, not too hot, smooth finish.

This is an excellent and maybe underrated BA barleywine. The barrel doesn’t add too much or too little, just right.

TheGB (501) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2012
2010 version from Market Street Wine. Pours cloudy brown with almost no head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, sweet malt and hops. Medium to full bodied with a smooth palate that blends the sweet malt with bourbon. Tasty, the bourbon taste has probably mellowed since it’s the 2010.

Draft. Clear dark amber color. Aroma of whiskey and vanilla. Taste is similar. The whiskey overwhelms the beer.

Pours a rich reddish-brown with a beautiful head. Alcoholic and slightly cloying nose. Rich malt flavor, a bit sweet, with a notable whiskey finish. Wish I would have bought more to let a few age... I think this would only get better.

Deep ruby with no head. Malt sweetness with pomegranate and stone fruit apparent. Taste is malt, grassy hops, and a tart citrus. Very slightly oaky. Nice.

on draft poured a bit lighter than its sister beer the cabernet. the light aroma of bourbon over the sweetness of the malts. almost had a sweet candy flavor mixed with the bourbon. quite different for a barley wine and wonder if aging does anything for this. leaves you wanting more.
