brokensail (13227) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
A: The pour is a surprisingly clear amber color with just about no head and minimal visible carbonation. S: I don’t really pick up much bourbon, but some hints of vanilla do make their way into the nose. The nose is mostly toffee, molasses, and a bit of caramel. The usual aromas, but somewhat muted. T: The flavor is just as flat and one-note as the nose (if not a bit more). There is more bread than anything else on the nose with molasses and a hint of vanilla, along with some alcohol. M: The body is quite thin for a barleywine and the carbonation is minimal. D: A rather bland effort for a barrel aged barleywine. I would not really bother with this one.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, caramel, cherry, orange, and vanilla. Flavor of bourbon, caramel, oak, toffee, and cherry.

argo0 (12111) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2010
22oz bottle. Small off-white head atop clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, some vanilla/Bourbon, some orange. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, some vanilla/Bourbon, light vinous, alcohol. Medium-full body, some stickiness. Nice use of Bourbon barrels -- to complement rather than dominate the beer. Quite different (and much better) than the Cab version, tasted back-to-back.

Tmoney99 (11901) - 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.
