Mortlach (959) - Rome, - JAN 29, 2013
29/01/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (12.7oz, 2008 vintage bottle). Miele di castagno, intensa, riflessi bordeaux, schiuma assente. Al naso sentori di vaniglia, note di ciliegie e di vino fortificato, una netta nota acetica che pian piano prende il sopravvento su tutto. In bocca è disastrosa, acetica, sempre di più col passare del tempo, legnosa e astringente, asfalta il palato. Corpo pieno, carbonazione quasi assente. Peccato averla provata in condizioni pessime.

Strong. Great aroma, but there is a slight sweetness that disappears as the bourbon and alcohol flavors race against the full flavors of the beer

Staffan47 (809) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
Flaska från 2010, 37cl. (Trade med STLWill, thanks!). Dras parallellt mot en vanlig från 2009, ej blint. Inte helt skitenkelt att lista ut vilka som är bourbon, och vad för bourbonfat osv... Ingen större skillnad i doft. Lite bourbontoner och alkoholdoft. Svagt kolsyrad. Medium/tung kropp. Mörkbrun.

Bottle @ ZZT 9 thanks to Caesar. Dark brown color with a deep red glare coming through, virtually no head. Smell and taste malts, some alcohol, bourbon, a hint of liquorice. Lingering warming alcohol and some bitter. Full body, medium carbonation.

gEUS (890) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Pours deep brown with a nice egg-sheel white-greyish colour. Aroma is bourbon, bourbon and some more bourbon with well hidden nuts and raisins, hints of toffee. Medium body with lots of vanilla sweetness and noticeable alcohol butn. Taste is vanilla, cinnamon and sweet cherry oak, caramel and nuts. This is certainly not bad, but why oh why do bourbon barrel aged beers have too much bourbon - I lack a decent balance between the taste of the base beer and the bourbon... I still like it a lot :-).

A fantastic barley wine. Pours a beautiful dark brown with tan head. Aromas of vanilla, bourbon, coconut, dark fruit, brown sugar. Flavors are sweet and malty. Vanilla, grapes, sweet grains. A hot boozy finish. Superb.

budznsudz (473) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2014
2012 bottle. The cork was incredibly difficult to extract. Alas the beer has almost no carb. What did I expect from the lost abbey? Fortunately it’s not infected. Aroma is bourbon, oak, leathery tannin, and a touch of toffee. The taste is bourbon, vanilla, oak, and oxidation. It’s good, although it would be sublime if it wasn’t flat.
