From tap at Stone Bistro. Pours hazy orange with no head. Dense bourbon aroma with mild fruity accents. Smooth caramel malty base flavour and a dense bourbon flavour coming through. Good balance between the malt and bourbon. Slight burning alcohol finish though.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2008
To celebrate my rating number 11,100 I enter this much sought after top-50 beer. Draft at The Bistro during RBSG 2008. An unclear amber beer wtih a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet amtly with notes of caramel, alcohol, and bourbon. The flavor is very sweet - almost cloying with lots of alcohol burning the palate and top of throat, but also strong notes of caramel and a subtly bourbon note.

THE Others tasting. 2010 Bottle. Cheers to the ever resourceful Bruce for this one. Hazy amber beer with a big pale tan - cream head. Palate is dry and a little soft. Mild lactose cream and caramel. Spicy bourbon and a trace of dry wood. Dried fruits lurk underneath. Semi dry finish. Usual Stone quality but even after 3 years this still has bourbon bite.

bhensonb (10340) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Tap at the Graduate in Davis, CA. Pours amber with an off-white smear. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Aromas of toasted malt and citrus/pine. Flavor is sweet malt with cirtus hop. There is an oaky astringency that pops up in the finish. But it’s barley wine sweet overall. Nice drink.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Massive presence of bourbon that overshadows everything else in the beer. Like a bourbon aged in beer barrels.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 23, 2012
Pours amber in color with a white head. Smells much hoppier than I expected. Not a ton of barrel/bourbon character. Some vanilla and a bit of booze, but mostly pine and citrus with caramel malt. The flavor is more of the same. Probably the most bitter barrel aged barleywine I’ve ever had. Pine and citrus with caramel, a hint of vanilla, some oak, and maybe just a touch of bourbon.
