The infamous #1. Update on this, since I believe it was released in 2011. A: Mahogany with a thin creme colored ring on top. Lacing. N: Big bourbon nose on top, with heaps of caramel. Toffee and prunes, Oak. T: Big sweetness and a helping of bitterness. Lots of wood. M: Sticky, medium-heavy body that’s slightly watery. Alcohol is big . O: Still astringent even after all these years. The nose is very inviting, but the sensation of drinking it still takes a person by surprise. Guess I’ll keep sitting on these.

F0BAB 2010: This p0ured a cl0udy amber b0dy with a suggesti0n 0f a head. The n0se was b00zy, malty sweet, c0me t0ffee, and a whiff 0f fl0ral scents. The taste was h0t with alc0h0l, sweet with caramel/t0ffee, tempered with a charred w00d bitterness. Pretty decent.

Bottle thanks to my secret Santa. Pours a near clear deep amber with an orange hue and a light brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains and caramel with a bit of apple and a decent amount of bourbon. Flavor starts with some earthy grain and bread with growing sweet grains, caramel and some vanilla/bourbon that adds a bit of heat in the finish.

Hazy amber with no head. Nose is buttery, toffee. Smooth flavor, toffee, medium body and low carb. This seems to have lost its sweetness and thinned out, maybe past its prime.

Cheers to Tooch4321 for hooking me up with this one. Cheers, Adam! Pours a hazy orange-brown with a white head. Nose is caramel, toffee, dates, booze, oak, and whiskey. Flavor follows with booze, toffee, bourbon, and caramel all over and a hint of raisiny-dates in the background soaking in whiskey. Light to medium in body and boozy but redeemable overall. Decadent and rich, but still has another year or two.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a nice beige head. Aroma is insanely woody, tons of oak, earthy notes, smells bitter, vanilla, alcohol, dark fruits, tea leaf old hop aromas and caramel. Flavor follows the nose and is sooo woody, tons of oak, super earthy with the tea leaf old hop notes and decent bitterness, some vanilla, alcohol, dark fruits and caramel too. The body is on the lighter side of full with a creamy and fairly dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty interesting Barley Wine, certainly the most woody and oaky beer I have had in a while.

Bomber from Alan. Cloudy orange copper with a tan creamy head. Huge alcohol aroma with prunes, oak, smoke, coconut, vanilla (sorta reminds me off malibu rum). low carbonation, full body, lots of alcohol, quite sweet and hot.

The nose reminds me of the Angel’s share, and that is very enticing. Flavors of cherries, raisins and light hops are all saturated in the medium body of this warm elixir. Thanks for the share - you know who you are. You don’t know who I am either.

Pours an amber red with no head. Aroma of caramel, booze and slight smoke. Taste follows, way too boozy. Not a good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
