On tap at Beermuda. Wonderful aroma vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Dark brown with a thick creamy head. Smooth taste of vanilla and bourbon with a bit of oak. Definately a warming effect from the alcohol. Overall a great barleywine.

Draught at Beermuda. Cloudy dark orange pour with light white head. Aromas of light bourbon and raisins. Earthy floral raisin taste. Very different than anything Ive had.

Tap at the brewery, smells great, a nice full body and a good smooth bourbon taste, the booze does come through, this one was tasty

The pour is a dark copper w/out a much of a head & Zero lacing. The aroma is dominated by the sweet bourbon flavor. The taste is also centered around the bourbon flavor which really mellows the hops. It’s exceptionally smooth at 14%. Impressive stuff!

Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy reddish-amber color with a small, resilient off-white head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, raisins, bourbon, toasted oak, brown sugar, figs, and cream. Flavor hit all the same notes. Medium-full bodied, with a smooth, sweet, mildly boozy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Rich, tasty, and smooth. Not as boozy as others have indicated. Maybe an older vintage was on or something. I recently tried the Oak Aged version and this is a much better treatment.

Big in every way. A boozy Malthus sweet aroma with some citrus and pine. The flavor had the Bourbon and wood up front, lots of vanilla and some fruity ester’s and booze. This is very potent, not for the timid.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours a rich amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is full of toffee, barrel, vanilla, raisin, apple, and grape. On the palate it is sweet but thinner than I had hoped. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jredmond (7458) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Draft at blind tiger during jury duty. Pours a deep, murky muddy brown body with no head, no lacing. Aroma is dark fruits - raisins and prunes, bourbon and musk. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of bourbon, prune juice, raisins, and a strong alcohol warming in the finish. A bit too boozy, otherwise this would have been a home run.

Snifter pour if hazed deep amber with half finger head. Nose is rich, sweet, boozy, caramel. Flavor is boozy from the bourbon, sweet caramel malt, heavy, rich, not amazing though. Medium body with light lacing... Not my favorite...
