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)

unclemattie (4187) - 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)

zizzybalubba (1419) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, Asheville, NC. Murky brown pour with a quick off-white head. Aroma of maple, booze, and light citrus hops. Bourbon and oak are wonderfully integrated in the flavor yet not overpowering. Mixes vanilla, oak, tangerine, caramel, coconut, and just a touch of alcohol that can be found on the finish. Really nice!

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bomber. Poured clear medium garnet with a smoked beige head. The aroma picked up aged caramel, molasses, and vanilla, with tart bourbon and spicy rye cutting through.. lots of lovely barrel on the back of the nose. The flavor opened with tangy bourbon and oak, with warm, creamy vanilla and caramel following.. spicy rye and sweet bourbon enveloped the decadent middle.. long, memorable finish.. loved it! Syrupy and thick on the palate with low-ish carbonation.. coating.. this was some excellent stuff!

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Malty aromas in the toffee and caramel range. Deep brown with no head. Balanced towards the sweet end. Full bodied and warming with a balanced finish.

S_Side_Smitty (458) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours cloudy & dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is carob, molasses & malts. Taste is sweet carob (almost chocolate) and thick malts. It’s pretty straightforward and almost dessert-like with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Great barleywine!

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2012
2011 bomber. Pours deep copper with thin white head. Armoma of bourbon, raisin and caramel. Silky mouthfeel with no carbonation to speak of. Flavor has sour cherry notes up front followed by heavy malt, vanilla and bourbon. Well balanced and very drinkable despite its 10% ABV.

Bottle at Erzbierschof, Wintherthur. Pours reddish brown with no head. Delicious sour fruit aroma with hints of marcipane. Some yoghurt. Really great.

rajendra82 (953) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - SEP 28, 2012
The mahogany colored body was clear, and the head was small. The beer had the classic barleywine look down pat. The smell was very fruity, with figs, raisins, and cherries, with a drizzling of brown sugar. The taste was quite sweet and showcased the wood aging quite well. There were clear oak notes, vanilla, toffee, cherries, and some orange zest. Each sip felt quite delicate for such a big beer. The body may be faulted a little for being too thin, but it added to the mellow qualities that this beer. Easy to drink for the style.

Pours a dark copper with a medium tan head. Boozy vanilla aroma. Sweet lemony English style barley wine on the front. Finish with a bit of hoppy rye ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
