COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To commemorate our 3rd year anniversary we brewed this hearty wheat barley wine with piloncillo sugar and aged it for 4 months in Appleton rum casks. The result is something special; layers of caramel, molasses, toasted malt, oak and warmth. Cheers!

Sticky sweet with very boozy rum flavors. Has some bitter resinous notes from the hops that attempt to balance the sweetness, but it doesn't quite marry. Good, but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle crushed with the dude. Pours a dirty brown color with almost no head. Big sweet aroma of tons of booze, rum, sweet malt notes, vanilla and barrel notes. Flavor is sweet with big booze notes. Fruity sweetness, barrel notes. Slick, oily mouthfeel. Finishes boozy. Nice.

Bomber crushed with Honkeybra. Pours murky brown with a little head. Tons of vanilla on the nose, with some ethyl acetate and booze. Flavor is more vanilla, some sweetness and more booze. Not much rum to speak of. Pretty damn good though.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks to Kyle for the pour! Dark reddish orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought big notes of rum, nice caramel, toffee, slight dark fruits, hints of earth, slight spice in there, touch of hops but pretty hidden.  Taste is a mix of dark boozy rum, some slight earth, nice caramel, burnt sugars, toffee, hints of earth, grain, touch of spicy hops, finishing with some sweet rum and dark fruit notes.  Actually was pretty good, but a bit hot.

6/29/13. 22oz bottle shared by nulledge. Murky amber pour with a small khaki head. The aroma is boozy with lots of rum and some caramelized bananas. The flavor is sweet, also boozy, with caramel, bananas, bubblegum, and brown sugar. I’m thinking the barrel and sugars messed this one up a bit... not bad.

Bottle. Pours barley wine brown. Lots of rum on this, boozy for sure. Sweet caramel with the booze makes this work, but it might be a bit too boozy.
