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!

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.

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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Pours a transparent deep amber copper with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet dark caramely nose with some vanilla bourbon notes and some piny hops. Starts with pretty good sweet sticky fullness with caramel overtones and some warming astringent bitterness before the finish. Could use a little more balance, but the bourbon aging still enhances the base beer.

Plovmand (6913) - 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.

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...

slowrunner77 (6853) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
this dark decadent treat could be a prototype for a barreled barleywine. Ample oak and bourbon, but not so much the beer doesn’t shine. Sweet and deep flavors and aroma of carmel, raisins, vanilla, malt, bourbon. Very light on the hops, but appropriate. Very very nice sipping beer

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.

Bottle and served in my Duval snifter: Deep ruddy brown with a small but constant frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of roasted and nutty malts, vanilla and oaky bourbon barrels, some marizpan and floral esters, hint of maple syrup and sea salt. The taste starts aggressive with lots of boozy and BA influence surrounding the base sweet malts and somewhat hidden ripen dark fruits. Seems quite young still and likely really needs some cellaring to bring about a more classic English Kilned flavor profile. The bitterness is partly hop driven and far too brash at this point along with what appear to me as natural earthy tone that still need developed further. A bottle of this is going into my cellar not to opened prior to 2012, maybe then it will be what I want to be... or not. Promising like a blue chip prospect, the jury is still out.
