beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2012
22 oz bomber-Mahogany pour w/a very slight tan head which quickly fades into great, long lasting lacing. Fruity, winelike aroma. Cabernet Barrell Aging is quite evedent, very winelike flavor, really like drinking a fine port wine. Complex, multi layer flavor. I have always found the regular Below Decks Barleywine to have a harsh, short flavor.....this Cabernet Barrell Aging totally changes that. Very Enjoyable!!

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Strong sweet malty flavor with a lingering finish.

TheGB (510) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2012
2011 version from Market Street Wineshop. Pours a dark brown with a good 1/4" head, better than the bourbon barrel version. Nice aroma of dark fruits and vanilla from the cabernet barrels, but also chocolate malt and hops. Full bodied with a smooth palate of dark fruits, vanilla, chocolate. Cabernet flavor is more prominent than I expected, but it’s good.

Draft. Murky brownish maroon color. Aroma of vanilla, port, chocolate. Taste has port, coffee, cocoa. Nice.
