adnielsen (9416) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle @ Arminís house, courtesy of theHoff. Thanks! Pours a murky dark reddish appearance with a thin tan head. Fairly herbal, spicy hoppy, caramel, dark fruity, whiskey aroma. Rich, big woody, heavy vanilla, tannic, caramel, whiskey flavor. Pretty good but a bit disappointing.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle shared by THEHOFF! Dirty brown/tan pour, almost no carbonation and an aroma of bourbon & caramel. Flavor is also boozy bready caramel, nuts and very boozy bourbon and well balanced malt. Glad I got to try this.

Poru out of 22 oz bottle, big thanks to Kyle for this brew! Hazy orange, dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of earth, grass, grain, hints of vanilla, slight oak, bourbon. Taste is a mix of bourbon, vanilla, grass, hints of pine, slight oak, into lots of molasses,caramel, toffee, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2014
750 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy mahogany with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are huge notes of molasses, fruit, bourbon, vanilla and oak, along with subtle chocolate and brown sugar. The flavour is sweet, with complex malty notes, brown sugar, molasses, oak, dark fruit, oak, tobacco and bourbon. The finish is long and oaky with molasses, bourbon, tobacco and brown sugar. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a great bourbon barrel aged barley wine. Assertive, yet elegant, it would likely benefit from further aging in the bottle. 2014-01-04
