RexTalionis (3011) - FINLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown in color with a tan head. Dark fruitynyess, vinous notes, some oak with bit of chocolate on the side in aroma. Nice. Vanilla and sweet brown sugary syrup too. Rich. There’s a nice mix between toffee and chocolate together with some dark fruityness in taste. Ripe plums and raisins covered with a whiff of smoke in finish. A really smooth one, and good tasting too.

yngwie (15379) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle, 375ml corked. A very dark brown one, almost flat, but with some beige bubbles. The aroma has lots of dried fruits and alcohol. Prunes, some caramel and chocolate, hints of molasses and raisins. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, with some bitterness in the back, trying to deal with the sweetness. Prunes, raisins, caramel, some molasses and chocolate in the flavor. Lasting finish with loads and loads of flavors. It wouldn’t hurt to have this one at a slightly lower ABV, but it’s sure a lovely one anyway. 150314

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tiny beige head. Aroma of alcohol, bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate, some soy sauce and grains. Flavor is sweet and warming alcohol, bourbon, oak, caramel, biscuits and grains. Full body, soft carbonation.

leghorn99 (113) - Livorno, ITALY - MAR 7, 2015
Si presenta di color tonaca di frate / marrone scuro, torbido, senza formare nessuna schiuma o pizzo nel bicchiere. L’aroma č gradevole, sentori di legno, di cuoio, caramello, prugna disidratata e uvetta, per un risultato che richiama senza molti dubbi l’aroma di un Porto. In bocca č calda e morbida, completamente piatta, con un corpo medio ed una consistenza oleosa; l’alcool č ben in evidenza, riscalda tutta la bevuta ed aumenta d’intensitŕ nel finale, regalando delle note che richiamano un bourbon e che si alternano a quelle di vino ossidato (prugna, ciliegia, uvetta, fico).

Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light brown head on there. Nose has some caramel and bourbon mixed in nearly perfect proportion. Taste has a hintnof boze, but remains smooth and slightly sweet with hints of wood and caramel. Really nice brew.

alex_leit (497) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 17, 2015
375 ml bottle with print "bourbon 2012". Mahogany color with brown foam. Very powerful aroma: plums, gooseberries, blueberries, jam, caramel, vanilla, bourbon, smoke and alcohol semitone, port, cocoa, coffee, marmalade, vanilla, oak. Powerful wine flavor, mixed with bourbon, vanilla, oak wood, slightly oxidized, forest herbs, caramel. Great example of barley wine!

Pours reddish dark brown, little head. Lots of bourbon, oak on the nose. Taste is sweet, butterscotch, toffee, vanilla, more oak. I can appreciate the complexity of this, but it the end it’s too much/too sweet for me. As a dessert pairing it is probably great.

MotherBrother (812) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
So ye, finally got around to this bad boy. The last of the "Angels shares" I opened was a sour mess of bad sour dough infection, so I was a bit skeptical buying another... Oh well, I did, and how glad am I to have done so. Pours dark, murky coke like brown, with as good as no head what so ever, with a nice amount of alcohol lacing. Aroma is pretty darn packed with boozy bourbon gewy goodness, banana, vanilla, oak, caramel, some sugary nuts, dark fruits soaked in bourbon, molasses. Does smell a lot like port wine. Taste is pretty darn sweet, with some faint bitter notes at the back, walking hand in hand with the slight heat of the 12,5 abv. Medium and oily body, with no carbonation (surprised right?) The Angels share was on the first BW I ever had the pleasure of drinking, and this really took me back to the rookie days.

Bottle split 4 ways. Dirty brownish pour with some tiny lacings. Nose has loads of bourbon notes, caramel, vanilla and butter. Taste is fairly sweet, toasted, vanilla, caramel and sweet malts. Good stuff!

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 Egy kevés utánajárást azért megkövetelt, mire arra a megállapításra jutottam, hogy a kezemben lévő Lost Abbey darab a Bourbon Barrel verziót testesíti meg, mivel az üveg címkéje nem feltétlenül nyújt egyértelmű iránymutatást az ügyben. A Ratebeer honlapján az alap verzió és a bourbon hordóban érlelt típus címkéje sem passzol azzal a változattal, amit az utóbbi főzet neve alatt szerepeltetve alkalmam volt megszerezni, az interneten rendelkezésre álló fotók azonban a birtokomban lévő üveg képét örökítik meg a "Bourbon Barrel" karakterrel felruházott ital vonatkozásában. Kólaszín-árnyalatú testére halovány habréteg ül, keskeny karimájú fedelet rajzolva az italra. Az illatai egyszerűen utánozhatatlanok, a legelegánsabb barley wine-aromák, amiket valaha éreztem. A puha selyemcukros, édesített paradicsomleves, fodormentás és pillecukros csemege hangulata kóstolásra buzdít, hívogató aromái egyszerre simák és feltűnésmentesek, ugyanakkor megismételhetetlenül egyedi stílusúak, kókuszos fahordós, vajas bourbon-karakterű, mazsolás hangulatúak. Ízvilága a mennyei manna körvonalait hordozza, keserédes datolya és füge, mályvacukor, vaníliás whisky jegyeit jeleníti meg, vakító élénkségű aromái apró szénsavbuborékokkal tarkított kortyokban öltenek testet, melyek olajosan csúsznak. A hordóérlelés jótékony hatása már-már tökéletesnek ható szerkezetet biztosít a főzetnek, a karakteres árpaborok szerelmesei mindenesetre ne keresgéljenek tovább.
