Arayaga2 (1813) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Reddish brown with a thin skim of tan head. Aroma is slightly bourbony, with not much else going on. Taste reminds me of a chocolate cola product, with a mineral remnant into the finish. None of the big nasty oxidized flavors of the cabernet variant, but not much bourbon either. $7/22oz

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2011
2010 bottle. Pours a deep amberish-brown color with a thin head on top. Not much in the way of lacing. Lots of caramel show in the aroma that’s followed by some raisin and a little bourbon. The bourbon is not as evident as expected. This is very smooth going down with a gentle warmth to it. There’s a little more bourbon in the flavor but still not a lot with wood, caramel, and plum notes. Perhaps a touch of vanilla too. This really does come across as a very basic barrel-aged barleywine. No thrills here, the bourbon seems diluted to the point it almost seems like a standard non barrel-aged barleywine, but it’s still plenty enjoyable.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
22 ounce bottle, 2010 vintage, opened 7/6/11. Pours a hazy reddish color with a fizzy tan head. Fairly poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of toffee, bourbon, wood, cola and a bit of a cheesy note. The taste is toffee, caramel, bourbon, peppery wood notes, vanilla, anise, bitter hop finish. A little bit on the thin side. Some alcohol warmth.

Had this side by side with the regular version. Pours cloudy caramel color with thin tan head, Aromas of bourbon, dark fruits and vanilla. Similar flavors with the bourbon dominating. Medium to full body with minimal carboantion. This was much better than the original version.
