OldGrowth (2662) - North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2007
bottle, from trader with JCapriotti. Good aroma sweet, strong, borderline too much, brandy barrel. Little caramel, nuttiness in background. Little eathy as it warmed. Clean orangy brown color, small head, little to no lacing. Sweet flavor, Pretty much all barrel, little maple molasses comes out. Again barrel overwhelms any other flavor. Medium body, smooth oily mouthfeel, Kind of flat, bitterdry finish. Maybe I’m tired of the barrel, but I didn’t find any of the "Brown" in this, mainly the brandy barrel.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Nice looking, striking bourbon-vanilla aromas. Fruity and sweet. Creeping into barleywine-land. Alcohol burn. Too much bourbon for me.

interesting beer, thanks for the share, it had a nice colour to it. The beer tasted interesting as well, there was a bit of oak, carmel and even a bit of brandy notes as well. Overall not bad stuff
