2012 22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light oak and bourbon and vanilla, caramel and toffee malts, light grains and dough, and some alcohol. Flavor the same. Average to smoother texture. A decent barley wine, but a little hot and not that balanced.

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.

22 ounce bomber that pours a mahogany red color with very little tan head. Aromas of caramel malt, oak, vanilla, brown sugar, figs and dates. Flavor is much the same with a touch of bourbon initially. As the beer warmed, the bourbon flavor mellowed out with more of a vanilla finish. Real nice ber that I wish I had more of.

On tap at the bocktown, should stay below decks for a few years before they tap this again. Just a clean simple aroma. Big raw American wannah bee barly wine with shades of whisky in there. These course BW wannah beez are simply that. There is a slight hint of harvies in there I think but it may be my imagination. Almost triggers that gag reflex. does not hide alky well. cloying finish

Bottle. Pours mostly clear brown with an amber tint and a thin, frothy off-white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is sweet, cookie and caramel malt, vanilla, oak, and faint dark fruit. Flavor is sweet malt forward, booze, oak, vanilla and dark chocolate; lightly sweet, bourbon finish. Full body, medium carbonation, and high warmth.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Vintage 2010. 22oz bottle. Red color, white head. Aroma of apple blossoms, toasted barley malt, fusel / booze, dark fruit. Flavor is of alcohol and candy. Like those liquor filled chocolates. Nice toasted malts, a good representation of dark fruit. Some woody notes, vanilla. Finishes with a good amount of wood and lots of alcohol. I’m glad it’s gonna be a long cold night. 6,4,7,4,14

Bottle (650 ml). Thanks to biere_froide for this one! Dark amber beer with a small white head and fair lacing. Aroma of bourbon (not overwhelming), plum, fig, dark fruits and malt. Taste of bourbon, dark fruits, malt and caramel. Slight bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is oily. Medium to full body. Warming alcohol. Good bourbon barrel barley wine but not outstanding.

Vintage 2012. Sa robe est plutôt rougeâtre et la longévité de son petit col mousseux m’étonne. Ses parfums de bourbon se font bien sentir. Ils demeurent toutefois bien enrobés par de riches malts caramélisés. Son nez est tout en simplicité et reste bien agréable tout au long de la dégustation. Ses saveurs de toffee et de caramel tapissent rapidement ma langue. La présence du bourbon n’est pas négligeable non plus. Il arrive bien chaud avec ses saveurs boisées et poivrées. Quelques notes de noix de coco et de vanille finissent par se signaler. Il y a peut-être derrière tout ce bruit la naissance de quelques notes fruitées. Sa bouche témoigne quelque peu d’un traitement subi par la barrique. J’aurais aimé davantage une texture plus forte. Sa finale est assez puissante et intense : le bourbon s’accapare de ma bouche mais refuse d’écraser les sucres maltés. Intéressante dégustation chez Ben. Merci pour ce digestif d’après-midi!
