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!

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.

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.

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.

Share courtesy of dak. It pours with a clear amber body that supports a thin light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up mostly sweet dark fruity esters with prunes and figs and dates as well as some sugary smelling malts. In the background is a touch of oak. The taste is smooth with just the right amount of boldness. I get plums, raisins and figs to go along with a mild sense of sugar coated bitter hops and spicy rye bread. Deep in the background are notes of smooth sweet rum-y goodness and oak. Darn nice stuff. Great sipper as all the flavor notes come together wonderfully and build a smooth nectar rich like bridge to flavor paradise.

Bomber drank whilst watching the final BSG episode. Awesome! Frack me. Anyway, pours a deep ruby hue with a small white head. A big fruity nose with some chocolate and light barrel. The flavor combines big sweet berries, molasses and caramel and sweeter rum and heat. A bit warm but flavorful and nice. A decadent treat.

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.

Draft at Dutch’s Feb. 2013 notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, lightly toasted bread, some fruitiness, rum barrel, slightly boozy, golden raisins, wood, molasses. Solid stuff, I have a bottle I should try soon.

another treat from chicago .. . getting lots of sweetness- sugar, rum, very mild wood, and melted caramello bear lying on an ant hill .. . light mouth, touch boozy .. . pretty nice beer but seems to pull from a direction to many .. . . you pulled me out of school for this?

Tap at Kedzie Brewery, snifter: Beautiful mahogany hue leading towards a bright amber bottom, small creamy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of brown sugar, rum, honeydew, plum, wood, earthy yeast and a slight peppery edge. The taste is very BA Barleywine-ish with heavy dark fruits and sugars rounded out by earthy and oak notes. Moderate rum character but overly sweet nor cloy. Alcohol helps cleanse the palate which is oily and has a warming finish. This is very nice, good sipping beer.

Draft to snifter at Dutch’s. Looks solid; an opaque dark reddish-brown with sticky off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; sweet and boozy with a nice vanilla undertone. Dangerously drinkable too. This is good beer!
