Brune aux reflets rubis. Nez très puissant de sucre cuit, d’alcool et de fruits rouges. Le boisé du baril perce avec évidence. Bouche très sucrées et boisée avec une finale étonnante qui me fait penser au chipotle (un peu fumé et piquant).

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Bomber into snifter glass. deep reddish-brown color with thin white head that disappears into a ring. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, dark fruits and some vanilla. Taste is the aroma, adding some spiciness, chocolate and alcohol. Full body, low carbonation smooth with somewhat boozy finish. Warming and complex. IMHO much better then their regular Barleywine!

Bottle pours a clear reddish-brown with brief bubbly white head. Aroma sweet malts with faint oak and a hint of sourness. Taste sweet caramel/toffee malts with slight bourbon and vanilla. Oaky finish. Palate full with alcohol burn, could be just a little thicker but did not detract. Alcohol evident.

This is not particularly complex but does a nice job - straightforward barleywine with a nice proportion of bourbon and quite a bit of oak.

22oz bottle. Thanks to Hopscotch for sharing this one. Pours a reddish orange. Nose is sweet malt and bourbon with some definite fruit character. This is a damn fruity barley wine. Which doesn’t bother me that much. I bet the cab version is very nice though. Vinous but lacking body to back it up. Nice caramel notes and lingering bourbon cherry caramel finish. This one has alot of potential but needs more body and needs to be pulled together a little better. Still better than I expected.

jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Pours brown with thick off white head. Huge nose of bourbon, oak, and maple syrup. Palate is thinner than I expected. Taste of vanilla, bourbon, and oak. The bourbon definitely improves the base beer. Would like to have more to see how this ages.

Brown color with copper tint and tan head. Sweet aroma with caramel and vanilla. Very smooth feel in mouth. Vanilla and caramel flavors. Oak and bourbon appears in finish.

Chuckaduck (628) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pours red-brown with a thick white head. Aroma is lots of bourbon, some dark fruit and vanilla. Not real complicated, lots of bourbon. Taste is led by bourbon, some dark fruit, some vanilla, some spicy and herbal notes. Mostly that bourbon. I would have liked a bit more complexity, flavor-wise. The bourbon dominated this for me. Wasn’t the barley wine that I was hoping for. Still, I enjoyed it; very drinkable.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Smells sweet like a barley wine, but also has the bourbon nose. Nice red pour with a small white head. Has the barley wine sweetness without any hops really to balance it. The bourbon is thrown on top. Not sure it works, but it’s good enough.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
From the bottle, pours deep red with a thinner white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, smooth and alcoholic. Taste is smooth, cherries, alcohol, malt, very good beer.
