2009 (The Perfect Storm): Stormwatchers Winterfest 2007 aged in Evan Willliams bourbon barrels.
2010 (Mother of All Storms) - Stormwatchers Winterfest 2009 aged in Evans Williams bourbon barrels.
2011 (Mother of All Storms) - Stormwatchers Winterfest 2010 aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels.

There are many storms out there, all of them perfect in their own way. But there is only one Mother of all Storms and it only happens in Pacific City, Oregon. Based on Stormwatcher’s Winterfest, our English-style barleywine, Mother of all Storms spent many months aging in Kentucky bourbon barrels. Now at its peak, Mother of all Storms delivers deep flavors of toasted malt, bourbon and oak. The finish rewards with whispers of vanilla, toffee and caramel. Best enjoyed with gusts exceeding 60 mph.

Good beer, but certainly not worth the cost...bought it at Bi-Mart for $20. I still like my favorite...Full Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout..

Bottle. Pours a very dark reddish brown color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose has a lot of roasting to it with some caramel and just a hint of bourbon. The taste is dark and roasty, with a smoothness of a velvety beer and with a little bourbon to it. Like a very stouty barleywine.

Mac slänger upp en flarra efter middag hemma hos sig. Min första reaktion är att det måste vara chili i den här. Blir snabbt nedröstad och utbuad. Hettan kan omöjligt komma från alkoholen och det bara måste finnas något annat starkt i den här. Väldigt trevlig och trots att den är ung (2013) har den anmärkningsvärt mycket härliga lagrade toner i engelsk barleywine-stil. Russin, nötter, fudgekola, dadlar osv. Härligt.

Bottle at a tasting at Butler's place. Pours a ruby brown. Aroma is malty with dark fruits. Lots of chocolate. Flavor follows and is huge. Lots and lots of chocolate. Super yummy. Full bodied. Thanks Troy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 I’m not normally a fan of the style (too high in the intoxication stakes) - but this brew has me thinking I could (and should?) be! Subtly complex in a way that totally covers the strength. Dangerously delicious. Yikes.

2012 bottle in a tulip, on a Tuesday, got your girl in the cut and she choosy. Pours deep brown with a tan head. Aroma strong of bourbon, caramel and toffee and light nuttiness, hints of vanilla and oak, very light alcohol notes, and some bitterness from the hops. Flavor the same with a great blend. Smooth texture. A really good beer.

Salmoniform (1237) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Poured 2014 from tap to glass. Dark hue with creamy tan head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is toffee, plum, caramel, raisins, vanilla, wood. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with a balanced bitterness following and warming ethanol finish. Overall this is a fantastic brew.

’11 bottle from westmeister enjoyed Christmas ’14. Long time want here-thanks, West! Deep caramel brown color. Nose of rich bourbon, barrel, and light oxidation. Slightly burnt caramel, toffee, tobacco, dark wildflower honey, some oxidation, sweet barrel elements. Great, edges out Blighs for me mainly on the palate and mouthfeel.
