Bottle number 356/454, served in a duvel tulip. Pours a murky brown with a thin khaki head and no lacing. Aroma is bourbon, wood, dark fruit, and brown sugar. Taste is bourbon, molasses, plums, cherries, and mild hop bitterness. Thick and sticky. Awesome beer.

SlackerMads (1943) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2015
Keg. Murky brown with a small beige head. Nose is dominated by bourbon with some sugary malt and wood. Flavour is also rich on bourbon; vanilla, coconut, white wood. Caramel malt behind it, warming alcohol, dark dried fruits, brown sugar, glue, salty licorice. Soft and filling in the mouth, heavy sweet and moderate bitter without getting sticky, light acidic, light hot alcohol. Long bourbon finish. Not bad.

jmgreenuk (5433) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 28, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller, Victoriagade during CBC week. Poured a clear dark reddish brown with a thin broken light tan head. The aroma is big sweet malt, rich fruit and alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a huge alcohol bitter palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. The alcohol really dominates this beer and burns quite a bit too. The best barley wines control the alcohol and let the flavours come through. This one burns a little too much to be a great.

Huhzubendah (2807) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Served alongside the standard FFF Behemoth. Yellowish amber body with a thin cap. Aromas of oak, bourbon, vanilla, malt. Some sweet fruity notes. More complex and drinkable than the standard version, with barrel aging characteristics cutting some of the alcoholic fruity ester sweetness. Caramel malt lingers. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty good.

MotherBrother (777) - Aalborg, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2014
Pour murky mahogany brown, with a small white bubbly head. Aroma of barrel, banana, vanilla, plenty of caramel/toffee to go around, bourbon, old hops, faint notes of dried fruits, not dark fruits like dates or raisins, more like dried apricots.. Taste is pretty darn sweet, but not cloying at all, so pretty well balanced. Medium bodied, with a somewhat fizzy carb. (not fizzy at all, but fizzy compared to the style/abv./colour...) plenty of whiskey and fruity notes in this bitch.

(750ml bottle out of 1696 total - 2013) cloudy deep amber-orange, little to no head. Nose of oak barrel, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, estery, even floral. Taste is very spirit forward, vanilla, bourbon, barrel, almost tastes like bourbon was left in the barrel, fairly rich, medium to thin body, long palate finish.
