This poured a very cloudy brown color with very little head. It has a big nose just dominated by bourbon and vanilla. It is very sweet and also very bitter, definitely a barleywine in the American style--as if there could be any doubt a Floyds’ brew would have a ton of hops in it. I like the coconut and raisin notes but it is so heavy as to be really hard to drink even a small taster.

2013 bottle. Dark brown pour, light white head. Aroma, sweet malts, oak, bourbon, vanilla and brown sugar. Taste, oak, lots of sweetness up front, oak and a bit of harshness.

22oz waxed bottle, thanks to thealum for sharing at RBSG. Hazy dark red color. Thin off-white head. Leaves loose bits of lace. Dark fruit, good vanilla, light spice. Nice wood character. Medium to bigger body. Smooth kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate tart spicy taste. Light bit of heat. Solid, woody tannic stuff.

Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours a near clear amber with a near white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has lots of caramel with sweet grains and a vanilla bourbon note. Flavor has lots of sweet grain and caramel with a hint of bourbon.

2013, orange wax, 338/1696. Aroma of oranges, vanilla, and booze. Taste is oranges, vanilla, caramel, almost like cognac elements. It’s pretty decent but I feel like a fool paying $100 for this bottle. I should of bought a case of Central Waters BA Barleywine instead. Aside from that, it’s a good beer. The orange flavor is a unique element.

markwise (4898) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2014
On draft at Hunahpu Day. Pours a hazy copper brown with a white head. Nose is big booze, cherries, toffee, caramel, fruit, piney hops, oak, bourbon, and more booze. Flavor is similar: big booze, cherries, toffee, piney hops, and oaky bourbon. A syrupy, piney, boozy barleywine. The hops and the barrel are in competition for a while, but overall an interesting beer. Medium in body, syrupy and lingering hoppy booze into the finish.

murky amber, fizzy white head. Toasty sugary nose, light marshmallow. Hot front palate with metal, cardboard bitterness mid, huge marshmallow through the finish, light grassy, off notes all over. Pass.

Brought by Douglas. Rating #500! A: Brown with a cappuccino head. N: Bourbon, malt, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and gingerbread. T: Very sweet with very little bitterness. I have a hard time being surprised that a 3F beer is cloying. /sarcasm M: Heavy, sticky, and hot. O: A good BA barleywine, but it woudn’t have killed the beer to show *some* restraint. Still, I’d rather have it than say, Dark Lord or Dreadnaught.

Bottle from a trade. Pretty awesome haul! Pours a deep cloudy dark copper color with a medium white head. A sweet spicy nose, bready, bourbon, some toffee. The flavor is nice: gingerbread mostly, it’s an odd combo of hops, super sweet malts and the bourbon. Certainly it grew on me as I drank it from the bottle after everyone left. Hmm. Good, but the original is better.
