COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Desciption - We took a decadent Honey Wheat Wine and placed it into a woodford reserve bourbon barrel 4 months ago. Tipping the abv scales at 12%, Wood Ya Honey is a a beer to be savored. Flavors of caramel, honey, vanilla, wood, and bourbon intermingle creating a crimson colored delight.

I love these crazy Jackie Os beers. This was nice. Aroma is sweet, big, boozy, vanilla, honey and molasses. Flavor had a hint of tartness, sugar, caramel and bourbon. Smooth and well made, pleasure to drink.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2009
From handbottle. Pours a slightly cloudy reddish brown body with a minimal head. Really really sweet smelling with lots of bourbon, honey, and vanilla. Some noticeable alcohol, but with the density of the aroma its pretty well hidden. Super sweet and bourbon forward flavor up front with a really great honey finish that works well with the caramel malts, all of which plays against the wood really nicely. Thick and full body with a palate coating viscous heft. Slightly clingy on the finish, but the alcohol thins it a bit in the finish. Nice beer, dangerously drinkable for the ABV.

BCTC. Pours a hazy murky brown with a thin white head. Bourbon, vanilla, and caramel on the nose. Lightly tart, a little acrid. Finishes lightly dry. Interestingly, I had no idea that this was 12%. Hides the ABV rather well.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Growler at DLD 2009: Mahogany hued with a solid lasting head. The aroma has notes of smoked meat, bourbon, wheat husks, caramel, tobacco, and all spice. The taste is twangy lactic fruits of a layer of malty and spicy tones. A hint of sour milk and mineral water upon the finish is a major turn off. The mouth feel is lively and dry. Good up to the aftertaste then it falls flat on its face.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Sampled from roving 64-oz growler during Dark Lord Day 09. Pours a semi-clear dark brown colored barleywine with a thin off-white head that dissipates to a film top. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla, a touch of raisin, and buckwheat honey. Taste is full bodied, smooth, with flavors of bourbon, raisin, brown sugar, toffee and vanilla. Finish has a semi-sweet honey and caramel aftertaste that is highlighted with a mild bourbon flavor. One of the better barley wines at DLD 09.
