OleR (4606) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2012
Sampled from 0.75 L bottle @Papsoe’s. Hazy orangey gold. Low blond head. Initial aroma is boozy and yeasty, offset by some fine fruit and caramel notes. Hot and creamy in the mouth. Sweet-flavored and caramelly, with strong barrel notes and potent fruity bitterness underneath. Not very IPA-ish, yet a very nice and tasty beverage.

Thanks to burg326 for the share on this one. Thanks, Adam! Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is caramel, vanilla, wood, bourbon, and piney hops. Flavor is similar with a nose dose of malt from the IPA, a nice vanilla/ wood infusion from the barrel, and some pine hops from the IPA-ness again. Interesting barrel beer.

dmac (3747) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle acquired via trade shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured an orange amber body with a full large foamy off white head. Aroma of wooden barrel, light whiskey/bourbon, sweet vanilla, cognac, toffee and molasses. Fuller body with slight heat towards the end, softer carbonation, chewy mouthfeel and a dry finish. Flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma with notes of grains, citrus rind, wood, whiskey and dark rum cake. Started off good but drops off.

750ml bottle from Alpar, shared it at Markwise’s Bday bash, poured a nice orange color, aromas of oak, vanilla, bourbon, pine, and some hops. Flavors are the same was on the fence on how this one woud play out, but nice beer overall. Thanks Alex for the trade.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Thanks to Alpar! Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and caramel. Taste is sweet and very much like a BA barleywine here. Medium bodied with a little alcohol burn. This was much better than I expected and I found it to be really, really tasty. One of the many highlights for me at Nick’s bachelor party.

DalzAle (1904) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Tap. Dark hazy brown pour, syrupy hops, warming booze and a hot nose. Flavor is very well blended syrupy hops, caramel and a touch of mild bourbon which seems to round out any abrasiveness of the hops. Surprised by this one, much better than I expected!

jcnielsen (1715) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle. Thanks to bnielsen13. Pours an orange color with off white head. Aromas of oak and bourbon. Kind of tastes like a barley wine more than a double ipa.

Pours a golden caramel with a paperthin head. Aroma of strong bourbon and oak. Taste follows, very hoppy, very tasty. My favorite of the lot! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
