Smells a bit sour, a bit sweet. Reminds me of sour candy. I am also getting some oak, bourbon and plum. Aroma is part sour, part Belgian, part barley wine. Nice dark brown color with a tiny ring of off white foam. Taste is sour with a good amount of bourbon. I can tell that this has been barrel aged. Aftertaste is like a boozy jolly rancher. Palate is great. This was my first sour. It is growing on me the more of it I drink.

furthur (366) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle, opaque coffee brown body, head the color of almonds, dissipates quick. Aroma is green apple, caramel, vanilla, boubon and whiskey, oak, faintly funky. Taste is caramel, spice, oak, green apple, whiskey, a hint of anise, and bourbon at the back in the aftertaste. Finish is sour with oak and bourbon. Palate is smooth, carbonation a bit sharp.

From the Hanukkah pack. Pretty wary about this could have been a mess but ended up pretty damn good. The sour was such a nice twist on what could have been a syrupy mess. Serving: Bottle

reebtogi (4614) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
650ml bottle pours a deep amber brown color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is red wine grapes and chocolate with some hints of bourbon and rye. Taste is a red wine grape dryness with a chocolate malt and dark fruit sweetness with some mild hops in the finish. Medium to heavy bodied with mild carbonation. A little on the sweet side for my tastes, but still a well crafted brew that is worthy of respect.

chinchill (2771) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2014
22 oz bottle consumed on the high seas. Dark pour looked black as used motor oil in the glass. A moderate pour only raised a thin head but this had a sustained ring and left decent lacing. Aroma of sweet toffee and dark roasted malts. Hints of dates, prunes and other dark fruits. Flavor: rich, sweet, fruity and boozy. Too sweet up front but some of those 18 hop varieties kick in and manage to produce mild then moderate bitterness in the aftertaste although some sweetness still lurks there too. Feel: very full body, syrupy feel followed by an oily finish; adequate light carbonation. Sticky finish. O: more or less a barrel-aged black barleywine with exceptional richness and sweetness. Too sweet and just too much going on for me but glad to have had a chance to try it.
