Big bourbon aroma and flavor enhance this big ale which was aged for seven months in Elijah Craig bourbon barrels.

Draft notes from the brewpub. Hazy brownish pour with minimal off-white head. Nose was a complex medley of bourbon, cognac, caramel, vanilla, hops, and fruit. Hefty on the palate, witha reigned in heat but still apparent, with notes of bourbon, vanilla, hops, earth, peat, and a finish that got more spirited as it warmed.

On cask at the brewpub. 2010. Warm boozy nose of bourbon, malt and ale alcohol. I love the amalgamated aroma that comes from a barrel-aged barleywine, it’s so distinct, unique and enjoyable. This one comes with an extra twinge of hops. Pours a well-hazed and slightly cloudy ruddy amber with plenty of ultra-fine off-white cask head. Flavors are rich, but to me surprisingly full of fresh hop flavor and potent bitterness. Snappy malts play off of the sinous bourbon warmth and a creamy sensation, then a strong rise of bristling, dry parched hop cone character. It gets a little dusty in the backend. I thought this was solid, but that it would actually be a bit more palatable with less hop character and some more of the sumptuous pale malt character that’s so expressive in the base beer. Somehow, this got a touch out of balance.

Had on cask. Very mellow due to cask but that’s not a bad thing. Bourbon and lots of malt flavors that work very nicely together. Very smooth as well. Overall a very balanced beer which I believe was due to the cask.

From the handpump. Very, very strong aroma. Can smell the bourbon a mile away. Very pleasant smell. Looks are a dark amber with thin head. Taste is very strong. Heavy notes of alcohol. Has some kick too it but very smooth. Long lingering taste of alcohol. Perfect for a long cold night or after dinner drink. Charlie has made a very fine barley wine. Cheers!

Served from a beer engine. Attractive amber-copper body with a lasting, silky beige head. Aroma of sweet maple, brown sugar, vanilla, cognac, and light smoke and earth. Sweet, deep malty flavor with well-matched bourbon characters. A huge, decadent, and tasty beer.
