Sample from a 22oz bottle at Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged tasting. Clear orange - yellow color. Minimal white head, leaves decent dots of lace. Good bourbon nose. Nice vinous grape flavor. Bigger body, smooth creamier texture. Light bitter taste, sweetness. Vanilla, vinous aftertaste. Gotta love Below Decks.. Always an excellent value for the money

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bomber. Murky reddish brown pour with a soapy head. Amazing aroma of vanilla, bourbon, wood, and maybe a bit of chocolate? So good!

j12601 (9560) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle at Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering. Pours a clear light brown with a thin white head. Smells of bourbon and vanilla, not a lot of depth. Very sweet and vanilla loaded. Overly sweet, finishing with a lightly tart dry bitterness.

22 oz bottle at home. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, brown sugar, mild bourbon, wood, dark fruits, vanilla, pretty much all malts and sweet barrel stuff, I like the English style barleywines better generally, but this is missing something, not bad, but...

Courtesy of markwise. It pours clear mahogany with tan head. The aroma starts with sweet bourbon and then moving toward mildly harsh boozy bourbon as well as prunes, figs, raisins, molasses and some heat at the end of the draw. The taste is smooth sweet inviting molasses, caramel, vanilla, sweet bourbon, spicy oak, raisins, figs and a thin strata of dates. Yummy.

b3shine (8174) - Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle to snifter. Looks good; much like the other one. A semi-transparent copperish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells good too; better than the cabernet barreled version. The bourbon barreling is much more prominent, and you pick up that sweet vanilla flavor. Tastes like it smells, but it alittle hot. Average on the palate. Solid, but not spectacular.

Plovmand (7877) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle at Papsø. Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet bready with notes of caramel, sweet malt and sweet fruit. Some hoppy notes. The flavour is sweet malty, bread, alcohol, chocolate and vanilla. Slightly vinous finish.

Sampled on draft at Ginger Man with Ben. Pours a light amber body with thick white lacing. Aroma is sweet booze, caramel, toffee and malt. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of sweet booze, caramel malt, light vanilla and oak.

nimbleprop (7515) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Sampled on tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a translucent, slightly viscous copper amber with a little cloudy white head. Aroma is butterscotch, sweet candy, a little woody. Flavor is more butterscotch, wood, caramel, a little medicinal. The wood came through a lot more here than in the Cab barrel. Full bodied, sweet, salty.
