Bottle 750ml. 
Pours deep amber/reddish with very low beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of alcohol, caramel. Taste is of malt, caramel, alcohol, sugar, bitterness, booze, fusel alcohols. Palate: Full bodied. Overall: Good, boozy. Nice one, but maybe too extreme to be outstanding. Huh.

750ml bottle. Clear deep amber pour with a quickly fading head. Aroma of caramel, citrus hops, vanilla, bourbon and dried fruit. Flavor is toffee, warming alcohol, bitter hops and some dry oak. Medium body with a long warming finish. Very nice addition to a great beer, but still pretty hot.

Brown in color with an off-white head. A bourbony barleywine (of course) in the start and finish in both aroma and taste; vanilla, oak, caramel and coconut. Fantastic!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at 10 East. An excellent showing of a barrel aged barleywine and I think it succeeds so well because the base beer is outstanding. So instead of aging it it barrel to make an average beer better, it makes a great beer better. Lots of wet dirt/tree bark, bourbon, spice, dark fruits and vanilla. Flavor echoes the aroma very, very closely. Bourbon, vanilla, toffee, oaked, toffe and alcohol. Very well done.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2013 750 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a gorgeous translucent reddish brown color with a small beige head that soon dissipates to a fine ring. The aroma is big and bold with whiskey, vanilla and dark fruits. The taste, like the nose, is dominated by the whiskey, big whiskey flavors and they make it hard to pick out anything else. The palate is full and silky smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is long with lingering bourbon. Overall: This is a fine beast.

Finally got around to drinking one of these 750ml bottles and figured this was a good time to rate it. Dirty mahogany with a beige head that completely fades. Balanced oak, booze, resin with some lemon rind hops (although musty), caramelized onions with some burnt butter, toffee and caramel. Mild carbonation, full body, smooth, boozy, sweet yet becomes bitter, balanced and enjoyable. Great sipper.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via and shared with oakbluff. Pale amber in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of fruitcake, bourbon, and ginger. Warming in the mouth with elements of cake batter, fig, whisky, and earth. Medium bodied with a fairly boozy finish. A solid barleywine, but I much prefer the non-barrel aged version.
