22oz bottle in a tasting glass. Pours deep amber with a beige head. Aroma of strong caramel and toffee malts, a little oak and vanilla, and some light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average to smooth texture. A pretty cool barley wine.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2012
On tap at Brick Store Pub. Nose has a good dose of bourbon with some sweet malts in the background. Flavor has a bit of dark fruit and caramel alongside bourbon and a touch of vanilla. Quite smooth. Very nice.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Foil wrapped, 22oz bottle. Vintage 2011. Toasted brown color, thin ring. Aroma of barley tea made of loads of toasted barley. Sweet bourbon, toffee, raisin, hints of chocolate, honey & caramel. It just smells like fucking candy. Tastes of toffee, toasted grains, oak, almond cookies, brown sugar, dark fruits. More of an English-style BarleyWine. Very soft, extrememly smooth. There is NO alcohol in this bottle at all. Perfectly balanced. (3558)

maxwelldeux (4343) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small-to-moderate white head. Nose has notes of wine and bourbon in it, just like it says. Remarkably easy drink for the alcohol content and the aging. Very interesting.

Homer321 (4177) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle to taster. Nose is huge with caramel and sugar. Minimal booze and barrel character. Not much alcohol noticed. Pretty smooth and way better than expected.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Having sampled the BFM version, I was fully expecting something similar (slightly tart/sour). This one was nothing even close to a sour. Not one bit of tartness or vinegar or noticeable bacteria of any kind. So my initial response was disappointment, but after getting past that, I realized I was drinking a really good barleywine! Clear copper/brown pour with very faint offwhite head. notes of black cherry, plum, leather, and not overly sweet. Smooth, almost mellow body seemed like this beer had been sitting for 3 years already. The abv was very well hidden - not hot or boozy in the least. Great to sip on. I actually preferred this version to the BFM.

A small taste from a friend (bottle) @ One Pint Pub. Pours clear deep chestnut with a low head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruits, alcohol and spices. Flavor is sweet and sour roasted malts, vinegar, dark fruits and some hops. Quite nice.
