Bottle. Pours a nice dark copper color with a beige head. Aroma is of filled with dark fruits, oak, vanilla, bourbon soaked raisins, cherries, caramel, toffee and earthy notes. The flavor follows the nose with nice amounts of barrel character, again lots of oak and vanilla, bourbon soaked raisins, caramel, toffee, earthy notes, cherries and nice sweet notes. The body is full with a silky and slightly sticky mouth feel. Overall a really nice BA Barley Wine.

@Basunen: ganska trevlig söt doft vs fat. Smak är mycket trevlig med söta och heta toner. Ganska gott.

Draught. Pours a cloudy brown color with a smallish off white head on there. Nose has a lot of caramel and seems moderately boozy. Taste is a little sweet and the caramel is definitely there, as is some booze. Nice and smooth, though.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 bomber shared by my buddy Shem from his recently acquired stash of excellent aged beers. Pours a lovely garnet hue with only a thin layer of tan foam. Lovely AROMA of significant whiskey (rich not boozy), brown sugar, port wine, and candied cherry. The excellent FLAVOR has big caramel/toffee, vanilla, pipe tobacco, dark honey, port, molasses, and some candied dark fruit. Mildly sweet but far from cloying. Actually finishes quite smooth for being 13.4%. Delicious and supremely executed. (478, 875)

Draft at The Bier Stein, Eugene. Pours a medium brown, decent amount of tan head. Aroma Bourbon with a slightly nutty character, some sweetness, caramel. Body rich, full, boozy, finish way too much. Yikes! Maybe hotter than anything else I’ve had. Should’ve sat on this longer, brewery.
