Pour is a dark murky brown color with next to nothing a tan head. Nose is of something resembling butterscotch and some other deep malts like a toffee type hint. Taste is very similar with some bread hints as well.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2011
12 oz bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a muddy brown with no head. Aroma of dried dark fruit, some chocolate, burnt caramel, sweet malt. Flavor is exactly the same but more intense....sweet, spicy, dark fruit, oak, very subtle whisky. Mouth feel is very heavy body with no carbonation, the spiciness replaces it. Overall, damn good brew!

Rich coppery pour, thin light tan head. Rich and dextrinous, light bready character with caramel and raisin. Mild alcoholic notes and some tannic oak. Rich and dextrinous character, malty and raininy. Light toasted malt character and spicy/herbal hop character. Full bodied and viscous, warming alcohol.

This is a very well balanced barrel aged barley wine. It is drinking great right now, and while I am not usually an advocate of putting a lot of age on a BA beer, I have 1 more of these that I think I am going to save for another year or 2. I don’t think the Bourbon flavor will fade to a point that it will loose that special quality overtime as is the case with some BA beers. I think this beer has the potential to a crown jewel at a future bottle share. If you have the means I highly suggest you pick some up!

wedgie9 (2631) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Tasted on 8/28/11 from a 12oz bottle obtained in a trade, 2010 vintage. Pours an extremely dark brown-orange with an extremely thin, bubbly tan head, that quickly disappears, leaving nothing behind. The nose is dominated by bourbon and oak, with vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, maple, banana, and a solid dose of alcoholic heat. The flavor is just the same, with super intense bourbon, cinnamon, oak, vanilla, maple, toffee, and lightly bitter burnt brown sugar. The body is full with light carbonation and a super long bourbon, vanilla, maple, and oak finish.

TURDFERGUSON (4045) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle shared by emacgee on his 24th bday. Heavy toffee and caramel, some vanilla, oak, light bourbon. Sweet, brown sugar, light oxidation. Nice treat.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours visibly flat, murky mahogany colour. Nose is tannic and insanely malty perceivable far above the glass. Suggestions of chocolate almond spread, tannic oak, a bit bourbon, and banana bread. Flavour is a bit hot and oaky as f@#&!!!! Nutty aftertaste, mostly almond and walnut with some hints of brown sugar-coated pecans. This is an indulgent malt bomb fer sher. Sweet with just enough heat not to be too cloying. Palate is silken, with a long duration, coating tooth and gum. Very full-bodied.

Christian (12884) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2011
Brown with a tiny white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and nuts, with an underlying oak note. Sweet malt, caramel and treacle flavour with a bit too much oak
