UPDATED: JUL 4, 2010 Bottle. Pours clear red brown with a slim pale white head. This is a light barley wine. Light nose with vanilla, creme brule, and dry oak. Light flavor with a bit of a cherry cough character, abd a long slow burn. Light body, and easy to drink. All of the lightness is not to say that this isnít a good beer. Its tasty. Just not nearly as good as some of the best.

2012 bottle pours deep mahogany amber, quick tan head that reduces to a cap. nose is mostly biscuit, toast, light oak, slight bourbon. taste follows this theme as the bourbon is more subtle... wish it had a little more. oak is very present. finish lingers and the abv makes me happy.

Arayaga2 (1806) - 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

Westmeister (1804) - 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%,

Bottle, 2010 ed, courtesy Brigadier, thanks! Copper pour, off-white head. Little retention/lace. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, toffee. Taste is sweet, bourbon, vanilla, molasses. Palate is soft, oily, slick.

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 thatís 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. Thereís 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 itís still plenty enjoyable.

Itís time! Well, it looks just like a barley wine. Thatís a good sign. Thereís a slight release from opacity, with a dark amber colored body and an off-white head. The aroma is not what youíd normally expect form a barley wine, though. It seems very much of dark caramel malts in the aroma Ė so much so that it almost smells like tobacco. The flavor is somewhat syrupy, thick, and herbal. Wow, itís unique. It feels like an imperial IPA in the mouth, but smooth and light from the oak aging. It finishes much stronger than an imperial IPA, though, high in alcohol, slightly malty, and with a definite hop presence thatís well-infused with that alcohol. I love it. The bourbon is gentle, but defines much of the beerís character. Why do I want to watch TrueBlood?

Nose is pretty blase standard bourbon barleywine, taste is fantastic, deep caramel base, shit ton of vanilla and oak, hint of sweet bourbon, they really are magicians with barrels.
