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.

Pours an almost clear amber with a small off white head. Strong aromas of bourbon in the nose, along with some fig. Taste is not overly sweet, but heavy on the bourbon. Not boozy though, just bourbon-y. Alcohol hidden, not hot. Light carbonation. Very nice. Buzzed quick.

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.

Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. Has a matly aroma of caramel and some oakish and earthy undertones. Upfront is a wine like flavor with caramel and spice. Finishes with a more chocoate and coffee base to the flavor.

neuromatt (1107) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
22 oz bottle courtesy of Dan, served in a stem glass. Pours clear mahogany with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has notes of molasses, caramel, smoke, oak, and subtle fruit. The flavour is fairly sweet with brown sugar, oak, vanilla and chocolate, along with roasty malts and toasted oak notes. The finish is long and toasty with vanilla and brown sugar. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent barley wine with nice barrel notes. 2014-01-04

Poured a murky brown with lots of bubbles. Aroma has bourbon and hops. Taste is slightly watery, which is a little surprising for the style and the amount of alcohol. It makes it very smooth, however. Lots of bourbon flavor and some fruit, not the most complex barley wine. Overall enjoyable.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2012
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.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours deep brownish-orange with thin head. Aroma is caramel and wood - complex, malty oak. Flavor is malty caramel, toffee, and oak/vanilla. Dry spritzy hop leads to an earthy bitter finish with chocolate+caramel aftertaste. Mouthfeel is briskly carbonated with a full body. Slightly astringent from oak and alcohol. Overall, rich and interesting, caramel and malty.

fiver29 (1025) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle pours murky brown color with off white head. Aroma is booze, vanilla, brown sugar, and wood. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and finishes smooth. Its not hot. All the flavors meld together well and has a smooth finish. I really enjoyed the cab version of this as well. I enjoyed this one a touch more. Good stuff.

arone12 (919) - Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Pours a very dark color with a thin head. Smells of bourbon and some sort of spice. Similar in taste to a octoberfest. Does not taste much like a barleywine but still good.
