Ungstrup (34667) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2011
Bottled. An amber beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of hops, malt, alcohol, and whiskey. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, malt, whiskey, and hops, leading to a dry finish. Too much alcohol for my liking.

Very hazy dark amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, fine carbonation. Creamy bourbon soaked malt. Alcohol spice. Touch of bitter wood. Nice smooth vanilla oak. Mild hop spice and a little marmalade. Finishes semi dry with the bourbon turning a little bitter. Quite bourbon led but nice. As per other raters, this really seems a barleywine and not a DIPA.

mcberko (14665) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at The Beer Mongers, pours a dark orange-tinted mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma is very complex, with notes of caramel, whiskey, rye, and citrus hops. Flavour is exquisitely complex, with loads of whiskey, rye, and the hops still shine through. Amazing depth to this, with a super creamy palate. Whiskey notes dominate but in a great way. This is probably the best barrel aged IPA I’ve had. Phenomenal stuff.

bhensonb (14170) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Bomber from the Co-Op in Davis, CA. Pours clear ruddy copper with a 3.5 finger foamy beige/tan head. Aroma is sort of hoppy over roast malt and a touch of that smooth vanilla? aroma associated with whisky barrels. Medium plus body with foamy/creamy carbonation. Rye it is. Oaky it is. Very hoppy it is. I’d say citrus and floral, but the barrel/whisky aspect sort of confuses things. There’s a lot going on here, including some mild heat. It is very, very tasty.

Tmoney99 (13609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toast malt and rye bourbon alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Heavy rye bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.
