jbeatty (1159) - New York, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle 40 of 342, 2012 vintage, 04/23/2015. Pours rather dark, black color, minimal tan head with a small ring of lacing left around the glass. Aroma of dark bread, nutty toffee and oxidized fruit, vanilla caramel bourbon notes to finish. Taste is caramel, coconut and chocolate with somewhat astringent bitterness, still quite a lot of alcohol in the finish, somewhat metallic. Medium body, light for the style. Cant tell if not so great to begin with or simply didnt age well.

jkwood04 (4462) - Connecticut, USA - APR 5, 2015
22oz (2012) bottle in a wine glass at Split thy Skull barley wine fest. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of toffee and caramel from the malts, light vanilla, some spice, hints of bourbon and oak, light bitterness, and some faint notes of alcohol. Flavor a little weird, maybe oxidized. Thinner texture. Not bad but not the best barley wine.

Fritz123 (1274) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from a trade. Poured into snifters and shared at the house. Pours a deep brown with a mild head. Aroma is barrel woodiness, dark fruits, dark sweet candies, bread. Taste is similar with the dark fruits and then wood barrel. Moderate balance. Carb is also moderate along with a velvet mouth feel. Slight boozy. Little mettalic on the finish.

My first barleywine. I was expecting a little bit more but oh well. Definitely got a buzz off of this one though

GnarlyGnome (721) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Disappointing for me... although that could have just been because I was tasting it alongside a lot of other barrel aged beers. Its got some good dark fruit flavors and a bourbony sweetness...but nothing to write home about.

Pours a nice deep reddish/brown color, tan head. Sweet malts, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, rich and decadent.

superspak (3169) - Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2015
375 ml bottle into snifter, 2014 vintage bottling. Pours hazy opaque dark brown color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, coconut, butterscotch, vanilla, bourbon, oak, light chocolate, and oak/toasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of dark/bready malt and bourbon barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, coconut, butterscotch, bourbon, oak, light chocolate, and oak/toasted earthiness. Light oak bitterness and bourbon spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, coconut, butterscotch, bourbon, oak, light chocolate, and oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Absolutely insane complexity and perfect balance of dark/bready malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with an awesome malt/barrel spice balance zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and fairly slick mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is well hidden with a light-moderate warmth lingering after the finish; but not boozy at all. Overall this is a world class BA English Barelywine style. Pretty much perfect balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. An absolutely mind blowing offering all around.

Damico (2790) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Pours dark murky brown at the end of the bottle with a nice sandy head. Aroma brings light caramel and toffee with smokey barbecue notes so nice. The god or is big not resiny sweet so glanced with spicey smooth barrel from the two blended bourbon aging brews. The flavor brings rich flavors of a blend of caramel, spice, and then a bit of burnt malt barrel so pleasant on an excellently carbonated body.
