daknole (9225) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Lightly hazy orangish pour. Sweet oak/whiskey notes hit the nose followed by some great brown sugar, and citrus. Flavor is big time whiskey, sweet oak, syrupy notes. Quite a big beer and good!

mcberko (6697) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
On tap for Hard Liver ’12, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma of light bourbon, liqueur-covered fruits and toasted bread. Flavour of very pleasant wood / bourbon notes, vanilla, toffee and light hops. Light-bodied for a barley wine but very pleasant.

Cornfield (5504) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2014
F0BAB 2010: This p0ured a light br0wnish/yell0w (yell0wish/br0wn?) with a ring in lieu 0f a head. The ar0ma was pretty much a malt0se sugary sweetness. The additi0n 0f whiskey t0 the flav0r may it much m0re sav0rable, and there was a light bitterness t0 the finish. Just 0kay.

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Oregon Brewers Festival – BuZZ Tent 2010 – Portland, OR Dark amber in color thin head and clear as a bell. Big malt raisin aroma. Lots of alcohol and tons of spices. This was a big heavy strong beer for the day.

HonkeyBra (3421) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Sampled at FoBAB 2010. Reddish orange with a very small off white head. Aroma of bourbon, caramel, light vanilla and fruit. Flavor is pretty similar. Lots of boozy bourbon and caramel. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Finishes on a sweet boozy note.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Tap @ the brew pub. Pours a cloudy caramel brown with a small beige ring. Nose was bourbon dominate but not over the top. Some candied tree fruits and toffee in there as well. Finish was a little hot but pretty tasty overall.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 21, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2010 Sample at the Stone 14th. Rating# 3. Very clear copper pour with a dirty off-white head. Caramel malt was the dominating aroma. Flavor is quite nice, rich caramel, a little fruitiness, a bit of heat, but still very drinkable. (1359)

hombrepalo (1831) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Sampled @ FoBaB 2010. Appearance is a clear, copper color. Moderate, malty aroma. Sherry notes with sweet caramel and some dark fruits. Taste is a light caramel, malty sweetness that is very well balanced by a the bourbon flavors in the finish. Mildly warming and hides the 11% very well. light body. Soft carbonation. Very easy drinking...

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2012
On tap at Brouwer’s Hard Liver ’12. Pours reddish orange. Bourbon-soaked fruit on the nose. Great balance, with just the right amount of bourbon coming through. Really nice.

3.1
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Sample at Maui Brewing in Lahaina. Poured a taffy brown with thin head. Aroma was boozy and unsettled with sharp hops and treacle. Taste was severely uneven. Booze overpowered any subtleties. Hops are evident with some malt backing but this feels like a beer lacking refinement and finish. Not a good quality barley wine, more of a booze monster.
