"Pretty nice biscuit malt forward barleywine. The 1/3 bourbon barreled blend leaves me wanting a little more barrel presence, though it comes out nicely as it warms. Depending on the bourbon, 50 50 is about perfect. Little hop presence, though there is some back-end bitterness. Overall, pretty nice, though not a standout."

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.

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.

Drank at thirdeye11’s 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.

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.

Bottle courtesy of noodleuse, a huge thanks! Hazy bright ruby amber color, scant edge head. Aroma of toasted and lightly spiced caramel. Taste is rich butterscotch and light booze. Nice.

(bottle) Barley Ryne. Murky reddish brown body with no head. Aroma reminds me of a sour ale (tart cherry and sour apple), other dark fruit, light to moderate wood, sweet. Medium body, very oily. Very tart, sour flavo and sweetr; cherry, apple, figs, raisin; light wood.

Bottle from my parents, shared at Chad’s birthday. Brown pour with a white head. Aroma is lots of bready spice and tons of caramel. Taste is rye, brown sugar, caramel, rye, a little alcohol, and a good finish.

Pours brown with little head. Aroma is of sweet malt and some bread. Taste is pretty sweet with a lot if malt, a little hops, and a hint of bourbon. Palate is decent, but pretty sweet. For 1/3 bourbon barrel aged, I don’t get much bourbon.
