Twisted Reality Barleywine this year was very nice. Enjoy the result of extended aging in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. Mmmm toffee.

Growler from Town Hall (19/2/13) Aroma of fudge, caramel, alcohol. Medium hazy-brown with an insignificant head. Not getting much in the way of barrel aromas, although some wood/whisky comes out in the finish. Taste is mostly sweet, with a warming boozy finish. This is like the beer equivalent of fudge. Not chocolate fudge though, but the grainy mostly-sugar fudge that nobody really likes. Evidently this fudge is considerably more enjoyable as a beer, as this is the best barleywine that I’ve had so far this season.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Pours a cloudy dark brown color with amber around the edges. Medium light beige head that diminishes steadily, and partial rings of lacing. Aroma of bourbon, malt and caramel. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, caramel malt and dark fruit. The finish is boozy with an oaky vanilla and malt aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

hopscotch (9517) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Growler... Clear brown ale with mahogany highlights and a thin, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is an earthy, fruity, boozy collection of wood, dates, bourbon and ethanol. Full bodied and slick with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is of boozy, hot bourbon with an afterthought of dark, dried fruits. Growler courtesy of ctipping!

Growler - pours dark amber. The nose is sweet, malty, vanilla, and oak. The taste is sweet, a little bitterness, and brown sugar. There is a good amount of booziness in this one but it's still enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
