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!

Bottle. Poured hazy reddish brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark sweet toasted malt, alcohol and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark sweet malt, alcohol sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex standout beer.

Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Sample at the Blarney Wine tasting on 03/16/2013: The beer pours a hazy mahogany color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Boozy aroma with malt and vanilla notes. Full, syrupy body with flavors of earthy malt, rum and wood. The finish is sweet with a rum and oak aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Light toffee colored pour, light brownish/yellow head. Flavor of brown sugar, burned sugar, raisins, light hops. Good brew.

crossovert (10760) - Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2013
650bl bottle purchased at he recommendation of my boss. Pour is a brownish red, not the most inviting beer in appearance. Smell is rum, pears, oak, caramel, and perfumey booze. Flavor is more of the same. A super-malty barleywine with a boozy, oaky rum tone. I like it as a sweet beer. Burning alcoholic palate which I like.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy, dark and burnt-orange with a small, fleeting, off-white head. The aroma is fruity and malty with vinous esters and heaps of gooey caramel. Full-bodied and velvety with gentle carbonation. The flavor is boozy and rich, offering sweet caramel and esters of fortified wine – possibly cream sherry. Creamy, malty, über-warming finale. Kudos to newcigarz for sharing this world class beer!

deyholla (9731) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear deep amber brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has caramel, toffee and sweet grains backed by a nice rum note. Flavor has a nice combination of caramel, toffee and rum/oak backed by sweet grains.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Snifter on tap. Thin off-white head. Mostly clear orange / red / amber color. Decent lace. Bigger body. Dry texture. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Awesome aroma... Really nice amount of rum barrel here, not too strong, works well with the wheat barley wine. Great caramel malts, spice, toasty malts, some (tropical) fruity hops. Sweet, light bitter taste. Little warmth in the finish, but no bite here. Really good stuff now. I plan on getting more. Should age awesomely.

651mL at the RBWG after party in the middle of the hotel lobby thanks to b3shine. Pours a clear amber orange with yellow foam. Spotty lace. Nose is maple, strawberry, sugar, malted milkshake powder, mild cognac. Taste is sticky strawberry, sugar, warming alcohol, sticky orange. Enjoyable though.
