davey101 (747) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Winter 2014 release. Pours a clear dark red with lasting khaki foam. Nose is rich butterscotch, maple, raisins, and toffee. Bourbon minus the heat, Irresistibly sweet and decadent. Taste is brown sugar and a rich toffee with slight burnt sugar/hop bitterness. Loads of maple and some booziness. This is an awesome barleywine! The barrel aging and blending is spot on!

SHIG (4045) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle shared at Anchorage Feb ’15 Tasting: Poured orange with white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, oaky, and fermented fruits. The barrel aging has melded this beer very well with oak, caramel malts, fruity, subtle hops.

Lukaduke (2769) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Draft at Black Birch. Pours a medium copper color with a finger of gaseous eggshell foam. The nose is caramel sugar, popcorn a touch of fruit and some buttery oak notes. The palate follows with a thinner body than expected. The flavors mimic oak aged cornpops cereal with some toasted malts, grain, subtle fruit and some heavy vanilla oak influence.

Taste is rich smooth malt and fruit, raisin, barrel notes, maple, caramel, nice subtle bourbon. Finish is a lingering fruity bitterness with nice fruity booze notes. Good stuff.
