Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, bourbon, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, wood, and a bit of bourbon, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

It has nice brown amber color and a very small light brown head. I smell wood, vanilla, bourbon and sweet malt. I taste all of the same too, I can taste the alcohol in it. It is a barley wine so don’t trip. I love the bourbon taste:)!

Waxed bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, carmel, oak and fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, toffee, oak and fruittiness with a smooth lingering lightly tart fruity finish.

Amber in color with an average beige head. Aroma is of melting plastic, wood, and spicy hops. Taste is slightly tart, bourbon, wood, spicy hops...different.

Live Rate! Bootle shared at Dakine’s house -- thanks! Pours a hazy amber color with a ring of beige foam. Smells predominantly of red apples and bourbon. Thin in consistency. Tastes of further apples, caramel, and brown sugar. Not bad.

Definitley notes of infection which is a shame because other than the tart fruit notes it is a good beer with lots of vanilla and caramel.

Bottle, shared with Danielle Morris via chat.
Pours a deep amber with a nose of oaky resin and bourbon chocolate. Flavor is oaky bourbon and young fruit with a finish of delicate chocolate. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, just a beer I’ve had before.

Lätt grumlig orange i färgen, litet offwhite skum. Sötare doft av nypon, karamell, fatkaraktär, vanilj, kola. Smakar alkohol med nypon, fat, kola, karamell, lång alkoholig avslutning.

Bottle. Poured into a duck rabbit snifter glass a slightly cloudy reddish mahagony color with a slight tan head that collars arund the glass. The bourbon notes about burn your nostril hairs off when you take a big whiff of it. I can’t really get anything out of the nose other than the bourbon. Medium mouthfeel. Again, the bourbon dominates the flavor profile with little else making itself known. Really trying, notes of caramel and vanilla can be tasted along with some spice. Alcohol warms as it makes itself down your throat. Getting kicked in the mouth by a chicken is not all that pleasant. The bourbon is way overdone and kills this beer in my opinion. As it warms it gets a little better and drinkable but still not outstanding.
