27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø. Unclear, amber, low tan head. Hoppy, malty, fruity aroma. Taste is malty, liqour-like, hoppy with orange peel. Touch of tartness in all the sweetness makes it even more wine-like. Very complex. Perhaps a bit tired but still a very nice drink.

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!!
