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!

On tap at the brewpub. The rum aging is very evident here. Malty, slightly sweet, with great spice and a warming burn. Definitely a sipper. Happy anniversary Revbrew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from an over an year old bomber into a Revolution Brewing Company glass a dark red amber with a thin head Aroma is boozy sweet-thinking rum vanilla & prunes? Flavor is straight up molasses & rum here with some toffee caramel. Balance creates a smooth satisfying finish syrupy malted sugar. Have had this 4 x over past year including on tap @ Revolution. Age makes this a superb BW!!

Poured a 14 month old bottle into a Revolution pint glass. Was a clear red amber with a 2 finger light tan head. Aroma is caramel, vanilla, and rum. Taste is a slightly hopped caramel rum and vanilla goodness. Palate is good and smooth with nice carbonation. Overall an excellent American Barleywine.

Tasty beer but not digging the rum aroma and the aftertaste is alright. I definitely prefer straight jacket for rev barleywine

Brown to burgundy body with a soft, light beige head. The aroma offers booze, sugars, raisins, toffee, oak. Sweet breads and fruit soaked in booze. Maybe some cotton candy. Apples and rum in the finish. Lots of big flavor, but perhaps this would mellow out a bit with age. Overall, pretty good.

My Bottom Line:
The deepest malt caramelization quickly seduces the nose, leaving the indelible print of salient cereal sugars and fruit jam onto tastebuds writhing in pleasure.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam skirts the cloudy amber brown.
-Alcohol helps lighten the back end.
-Straight Jacket and this one are obvious proof that this brewery is to be taken very seriously in any very malty endeavours they undertake.
-This one is only a year old and it already feels wiser than most Barley Wines out there.
-This is in the same family as Angel’s Share, J.W.Lee’s Harvest Ale, Dieu du Ciel! Solstice d’Hiver Bourbon, etc..

Bottled in Jan. ‘13.

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

HonkeyBra (3114) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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.

That1Guy (1868) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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.

Brown pour with an off-white head. Dark fruits, sugar malts, with some caramel and oak. Some nice rum booziness as well. Good damn beer.
