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...

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.

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.

Bomber. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with a frothy fizzy head. Aroma is tons of caramel sweetness, earthy, hair, leather, oak, bourbon barrel, and some metallic hint with light herbal notes. Flavor is bourbon, oak, candy sugar sweetness, honey, toffee, toast, light burnt malts, ashy oak and old wood, and some astringency in the end with a light alcohol burn which comes from a thinning body in the end.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip. Appearance is a nice mahogany color with a white head and a tad bit of lacing. The nose is straight bourbon. A bit of light caramel and fruit in the background. The booze goes with the bourbon. Taste is predominantly bourbon again, but done quite well. Really nice feel with booze and bourbon plus a slight sweetness underneath. Much better than the original, though not quite as interesting as the cabernet version.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2010
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, slight dark ripe fruit, and a hint of oak. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a small, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Very hazy. Barely sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, slight Bourbon, slight vanilla, light oak, slight caramel, slight chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Slick, slightly viscous texture turns lightly dry. Soft to average carbonation. Malt, caramel, slight wood and light vanilla finish is dry. 10%ABV well hidden throughout.

nimbleprop (4531) - 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.
