On tap @ Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore. Deep redish brown color with a small off white head. Nose is very sweet - dark fruit, vanilla, and oak. Chewy, sticky mouthfeel. Taste is all about the bourbon...and sweet fruit. Alcohol is well disguised.

Bottle shared. Ruby red-body. Foamy off-white head. Mild big malt tones, the oak really smooths it all out. Really smooth and mellow for the ABV. Easy going, balanced. Nice!

On draft at Isaacs. Nice Mahogany pour with hints of caramel malts is vanilla, butter scotch and raisin. I love barley wines and this one did nothing to change that. Very smooth.

cbfobes (2269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2013
On tap at Dexters a while back, pours a clear dark amber with an off white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma was really sweet, a little more than I was expecting, some of the bourbon and oak comes through as well, the flavor has a lot of bourbon character on the front end with some dark fruit and caramel in the finish, really thick and full, pretty nice though, just a huge freaking beer.

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.
