ben4321 (4027) - 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. I’m glad I tried it.

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.

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.

erickok (3701) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - 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)

maxwelldeux (3698) - Everett, 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.

SpringsLicker (3156) - 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.

beernovice39 (3140) - Montana, USA - OCT 28, 2012
On tap at Rooster’s Beak. Dark red pour with a thick tan top. Scent is malty, woody with a note of bourbon. Taste is wood, caramel, rye and some spicy hops. Good stuff!

aracauna (3094) - Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Hazy brown. This is thick enough that the head builds slowly. Caramel, nuts, a touch of dark dried fruit. Not over the top, but good.

Amber with a ring of foam. Grainy and spicy with some boozy notes coming through. Dry finish.

Pours slightly hazy copper color with khaki head. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, oak and rye. Sweet caramel and rye flavors with some vanilla and oak and a hint of alcohol. Minimal bourbon flavor. Medium to full body with soft carbonation.
