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.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
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.

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.

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!

michael-pollack (4959) - 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.

sonnycheeba (4956) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2012
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.

superspak (4587) - Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2013
22 ounce bottle into snifter, 2012 vintage. Pours slightly cloudy deep ruby red color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big caramel, raisin, toast, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, bourbon, brown sugar, and light booze. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, raisin, brown bread, vanilla, toast, toffee, clove, oak, bourbon, brown sugar, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, brown bread, raisin, vanilla, toast, toffee, clove, oak, bourbon, brown sugar, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible balance and complexity of dark malt and barrel flavors; with a fantastic malt/barrel balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a moderately creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy moutfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic BA Barleywine! All around awesome complexity and balance of malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

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
