Bomber. Rust brown pour with minimal head. Nice nose of wood and sweet. Smooth full palate. Sweet caramel, low bitter, very nice.

Bottle from JCB. Thanks! A murky red brown pour with little head. Aroma is quite sweet with cherry, thick caramel, mild dark fruits, booze, and faint degraded hops. Flavor continues with the sweet theme of cherry, syrupy malt, caramel, brown sugar, and faint dark fruit. Lingering sweet, syrupy malt. Some alcohol. Relatively thin, but slightly slick palate. A real lack of bourbon barrel character. Too much syrupy sweetness for my liking.

Not a giant barley wine fan. But this will do bourbon is strong and alcohol knocks you down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerandBlues2 (9598) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours lightly hazy amber with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is dates, cookie and caramel malt with vanilla and oak notes, bourbon and spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with medium bourbon and oak, vanilla and dates with light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

drowland (5998) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle awhile back... not sure why I never rated. Rich brown pour with a decent khaki head. Slight BA aroma with earthiness and mustiness. Laid back malty flavor with a touch of BA and earthiness. Underwhelmed.

Fritz123 (967) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Draft in snifter. Pours a hazy reddish-brown. Modest head and nice lace. Aroma of malt and bourbon. Taste is thick and alcohol overtones. Certainly has the almost bourbon flavor with maybe some charcoal. Also has spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon. Very good barley wine. Very rich.

ansermadide (1519) - Kyle, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Medium-orange/brown in color with a light brown head, this seemingly barleywine-style ale has a dull, soft malt aroma, soapy sweet, with a touch of (perhaps) rye and earthy hops in the nose. It’s a lot like a very bright old ale in the mouth, a little fruity, and syrupy sweet on the palate. It finishes a little thick, but well balanced. Very much like an English barleywine, full and meaty but not cloying.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 21, 2013
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a medium sized head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation slightly hazy dark ruby red brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of Irish red malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Very boozy, this characteristic dominates the taste.The bourbon is not as flavourful a choice as could have been made. Some rye edge, more just big malting. generous retained head on an Amber coloured body. Doug’s bottle.So-so drinkability.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours hazy medium brown. Almost headless, very oily appearance pouring. Aroma is nutty, with dates, caramel, molasses and vanilla. The flavor follows the aroma. Sweet, full bodied sipper. Some hop bitterness in this but for the most part it’s a malt forward type BW.
