2011 bottle from Brusin Ales. Murky brown pour. Some caramel and fruit. But unfortunately, this bottle has note aged well in a short time for such high ABV. Wet cardboard throughout. Otherwise, it could be a nice barleywine.

Bottle. The strong alcohol-laden aroma wafted to my olfactory glands the instant I cracked this top. Poured deep, furniture-stain-brown, the head but a quick fizzle. Despite the fear of something akin to varnish, this drinks with quite a sweet, whiskey essence, a burnt sugar burn underneath. (#4875, 12/29/2012)

Mora2000 (6154) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Drank at thirdeye11ís birthday party. The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and caramel malt, with some nice brown sugar qualities. The flavor is a bit different. I get some nice oak notes, as well as some toffee and rye. There is also a bit of dark cherry in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

TheBeerGod (5994) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle - 2011 Barley Ryne. Copper pour with a short, bubbly tan head. Aroma is strong oak notes, soft vanilla, dark fruit, dark bread, caramel, and hints of brown sugar. Taste is big oak, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruit notes, dark bread, toasted malt, soft booze, light toasted coconut and toffee notes. Body is medium-full and the carbonation is light leading to a pleasant slickness and mild alcoholic warmth. Ends with more caramel, toffee notes, dark bread, dark fruit notes, oak, vanilla, and brown sugar notes. Damn tasty!

ben4321 (5643) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Oak Tree, 1/4/13

Aroma: The nose is rich caramel malts, with some bourbon, vanilla, molasses, and a little rye
Appearance: Pours a clear reddish color with a small beige head that leaves drippy lace
Flavor: This one is heavy malty, much like the nose component-wise, the caramel leads the way
Palate: This one is fairly full bodied, with a thickish, slightly sticky feel, and minimal heat
Overall Impression: This was a pretty cleaver Barleywine. Somehow it sits there with minimal heat at 10%+. The caramel malts dominate, and the bourbon barrel aging adds a nice component. Rather good stuff. Iím glad I tried it.

thedm (5612) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, 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.

Sampled this Horizontally with the BFM Version of this beer 2011 Bottle Crystal clear (no muddiness like BFM) ruby tinted brown coloured body with a strong rust and copper glow and a very thin tan head - showing more carbonation than the flat BFM. Aroma of totally different notes than BFM - cigars, scotch, whiskey, oak, vanilla pods, tobacco and a lot of earth really come out here - THIS is a barley wine. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep, strong alcohol flavour at first with a pungent earthy, tobacco and spicey malt flavour showing a great platform for pit fruits, peat and a little chocolate flavour. Aftertaste shows a great complexity with the typical barley wine flavours - oak, vanilla, scotch, pit fruits, earth and peat all come out here and play around the palate nicely. Overall, a much more representative barley wine compared to BFM - but a totally different flavour profile. Great to sample, especially horizontally, but these are totally different beers, and this one is a barley wine, if thatís what you want and/or expected! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia on 24-November-2012 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-June-2013. 2011 Bottle//Purchased November 2012//Sampled June 2013

jaghana (5445) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle 33cl from Map thanks ! A cloudy dark amber beer without head and carbonation. Nose is rich on cherry, oak and lactic touch, oude bruin like profile. Aroma is very fruity on apricot, apples and cherry, mostly dry and tart, long bitter aftertaste with dark malt notes, caramel, vinous, very oily, typical oude bruin body, leather notes. Not bad just too yeast like in the finish, less clean than the Belgian versions but quite interesting.

erickok (5274) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2014
Murky body without any head. Wood, red grapes, raisin, sour, pine and complex. Thick palate, very rich taste in every sip. Characterful, lactic like acidity and delicious malts. I truly like this one. Original and exceptional taste. (Bottle at Au Bon Coin)
