Insanely huge BBBW. Big malty sweetness, caramal,m smooth bourbon. Smooth beer but a few oz is all you need.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. A nice diminishing head that turns into lacing on my glass. The scent of bourbon hits my nose intensely. It is followed by carmel malts. The BBBW flows with malt and bourbon flavor. The bourbon is more tamed than the scent led me to believe. The sweet roasted malts lend a hand to balance things out. In the end there is slight bitterness and minor dryness. Overall this is a very tasty beverage.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from the CheeseMan. 2009 variety. Thanks Daniel! It pours a muddy, reddish brown with no head at all. There seems to be prickly carbonation, but this brew can’t muster any head at all. The nose is a potent mix of brown sugar, treacle, fruit cake, bread. The flavor seems to follow suit with the nose. A good up front sweetness with hints of date, dark caramel, dark bread, light wood, and light bourbon. The alcohol is certainly there, but it dries things out nicely on the back end which is good given the complete lack of carbonation. Definitely warming on the way down, this one is a sipper. Great flavor and balance given the ABV, I would love to have a few more of these.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-11-18. Murky dark brown body, headless. Big aroma, bourbon, light wood, alcohol and tangy rich malt character. Flavour is similar, lots of bourbon character, support sweet malt core, tangy fruity character lends itself to a fairly dry warming finish. Surprisingly bitter. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate is essentially still. Some carbonation would go a long way to make this lighter on the palate. Has nice highlights, but leaves the mouth tingly with alcohol and sits pretty heavily on the palate. Decent but lacks the nuance and sophistication to take it up a notch. Bottle, note on cap says 12/2011 via trade with flandersned

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 2011 vintage. 12 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff!), pours a deep dark mahogany with almost no head, just a small beige ring. Aroma brings out some deep, lush bourbon barrels, some alcohol liqueur notes, and toffee and brown sugar further back. Flavour brings out the bourbon barrels big time, but never in a distasteful way, full of brown sugar, some kind of sweet boozy liqueur, loads of caramel and toffee, and alcohol. This is big n bold, alright, and executed with supreme skill. So much depth, with a luxurious mouthfeel. Though it is sweet, it doesn’t suffer from cloying sweetness like so many Kuhnhenn beers do. One of my all-time favourite barley wines.

Bottle (12 oz) 2011. Huge thanks to David for sharing this one! Hazy dark amber with no head and some lacing. Aroma is of malt, bread, red and dark fruits, caramel, raisins and bourbon. Amazing complexity here! It taste like liquid bread. Same here as aroma but with hints of tobacco and bourbon being a little more present. Mouthfeel is oily and alcohol is warming. Near perfect balance. Nice sipper!
