The hops faded and the caramelly sweetness came out of the woodwork as this puppy spent a year micro-oxidizing in the barrel, makes the end result almost like a cellared Shugga.

Very appealing aroma, but the first taste is overpowering. The bitter hops and extremely sweet malts clash rather than compliment. Bitter aftertaste left on the back of the tongue. Has potential, but needs to be pulled back a bit for better balance. A few years aging maybe?

Nice brew. Ripe fruit, sweet, nice lingering mouth feel... I’d hit this all winter. Too bad it was 79 here today. A repeat for sure.

Tasted at the 4th Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest on 11/14/2009. This Barley Wine pours a medium brown color. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is brown sugar, bourbon and sweet. A medium to full bodied Barley Wine. The malts are fruity and sweet, lots of brown sugar and molasses. Very smooth tasting. The bourbon flavors are very mellow and smooth. This is a great beer for barrel aging. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Draft @ Bistro Barrel Aged Festival. Pours a murky, reddish-brown color; light-tan head with solid, fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of sour-mash whiskey / bourbon character in the aroma: brown sugar, charred barrel notes; a light sour-mash presence. Decent amounts of bourbon / sour mash notes, warming alcohol and complex maltiness upfront; solid barrel character, earthy malts, brown sugar, some smoked meat character as well; chewy, dense beer. Lasting finish: basic sour-mash bourbon, earthy maltiness, well-integrated throughout.

another great lagunitas brew. Great balance of hops and malt. Sweet nose and taste from the sugar. Nice citric, vanilla, and maple notes. Much like the Imperial Red, but at 10% you feel this one.
