Pours a hazy deep orange color. Hints of bourbon over fruit aroma. Sweat on the front of the tongue with the bourbon coming alive in the back of the mouth along with a spicey note.

very much lacking its malty character. soapy barrel note. watered-down body but the bourbon portion makes up just a bit.

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.

Big BIG thanks to Doodler for reading my mind and send me this NM barleywine. I owe you man! The gold waxed 22oz bomber pours opaque copper with gold hues and supporting a short lived tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a tart sort of red wine note and then it starts to get into some oak, vanilla and bourbon. The taste is similar where Iím getting bourbon sliding into a barrel tartness and a bit of red wine. Wow, there is no beer left here but just vanilla, bourbon and a slight infection. Sure glad I didnít try and age this one.

Live Rate! Bootle shared at Dakineís 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.

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 donít 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.

Pours slightly cloudy with a nice, creamy head. Strong, smoky flavor, reminiscent of whiskey. Alcohol warmth. Malty sweetness with a hint of hops. Full bodied with almost a nitrogenated mouthfeel. Thick covering of the palate. High oak presence. nuts, roasty, alcohol.
