COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Launch into the exquisite flavors of bourbon with splashes of vanilla. Watch for currents of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Generous amounts of hops and malts make for a smooth journey from start to finish. Decadent desserts and aged cheeses make superb companions.

F0BAB 2010: This p0ured a clear br0wn b0dy with a tan head. The ar0ma was pleasantly b00zy, caramel, citrus pulp, fruity. The flav0r was reflective 0f the n0se and added an earthy bitterness that increased in the finish. N0t bad at all.

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Une belle mousse capiteuse, au-dessus d’un liquide brun-rubis, profond et limpide, se colle à la parois en traçant une belle dentelle. L’orge est présent aux côtés de fruits confits dans l’alcool. Un aspect boisé et acidulé semble se signaler aux narines. Le whiskey du Kentucky se manifeste plus en se réchauffant. Un goût qui n’est pas porté par une forte corpulence. L’alcool est imposant, un peu maladroitement et l’orge semble rendre le tout un peu pâteux en bouche. Embouteillée le 29 janvier 2012 (1000-010214)

Beerdedone (2584) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep dark amber with a thin and lasting tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, toffee, wood and caramel. Flavor of oaky bourbon, dried dark fruit, caramel, vanilla, toffee and had a boozy finish.

Pours a dark ruby-brown in a snifter with two fingers of foamy off white head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, with a faint hop undertone. Tastes of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla and dark fruits, a mild hop bitterness finishes out the taste. Basically like the description says. I really enjoyed this beer. I don’t drink Barleywines super often, so I’m not super familiar with the style but I approve of this one.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is barley wine with hints of booze and wood. Appearance is a dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Taste is like a barley wine at first, but sweet and boozy towards the end. Palate is dry with a woody after taste. Overall, and underwhelming beer. I love barley wines and love bourbon barreled brews, but this one did not quite mesh well enough for me. I wonder if it would have been better if it stayed in the bourbon barrels longer, or had more hops to off put so much sweetness... The world may never know. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
