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.

dfox670 (75) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2011
22oz bomber caged and corked served in a tulip. Pour was a deep mahogany with little to no head or lacing and that was with a rough pour. Nose was oak moving into light bourbon and sweetness with hints of plums and pairs. Taste was full bodied with strong oak and whiskey up front with more sweet flavors following soon after wards. This was a good barley wine not the best iíve had but was enjoyable

Malty, woody aroma. Deep amber with off-white head. Nice chewy malty barley wine with light wood and caramel/vanilla notes.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle: Pours a dark brown color with a nice fluffy head. The nose is roasty with vanilla and bourbon, thick sweet molasses and caramel and a light woody hop note. The flavor is nicely balanced, big bourbon notes but it blends into the big body quite nicely. Finishes creamy with more vanilla and a little heat. Not bad.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a yellow off white head. Malty sweet body, bourbon and vanilla notes. A bit sweet with fruit tones apple and dried fruits. Again a sweet bourbon and vanilla with a touch of oak, and a well hopped finish. One of the better BW iíve had of recent.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle GABF 2010. Pours a clear deep reddish amber with a thin lasting head. Aroma is big sweet caramel malts, molasses, warm bready biscuit, good fresh hops, and a restrained bourbon, and oak character- slight vanilla and burnt tones. Flavor is sweet fruity, good full big caramel malts without getting too sugary sweet, just a full complex sweetness with figs, raisin, then more bourbon, wood, vanilla, toast, ash and molasses. Good full finish- big but not sweet or alcoholic. Well balanced.

Dark reddish amber clear pour ... beige head aroma of vanilla and dark fruits, some fresh citrus hops and oaky .... tastes of caramel and dark fruits, with vanilla light bourbon and a hoppy citrusy bite to it more in the first sips before it settled .... dry fruity and grainy with bitter hop finish a good barley wine smooth and tasty

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2010
Tasting @ De Molen Warehouse. Red, ruby colored brew. Malty aroma. Flavor has a lot of sweetness, some bourbon, plums and caramel. Too much.

jaymobrown (1693) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Itís a bourbon barrel barley wine ale, and because it is winter in Chicago (even though itís above freezing, but there is a lot of snow), nothing matches the season like a barley wine. This beer is part of Unitaís Crooked Line, something I just noticed today. At 11 percent, it is sure to give a nice warm buzz. The beer pours a dark cola color with a large off-white head. There are chocolate and vanilla notes in the head with some dried, dark fruit. The taste is big and bold, with a chewy texture and a long finish. The taste is reminiscent of chocolate, caramel, plums, alcohol and vanilla. Itís a nice sipping beer, especially for the holidays.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Ruby body with light root beer cream head. Lovely vanilla tendrils wind around bourbon blips to twinkle the olfactory bulbs. Heavy bourbon body with woody cabernet tones and caramel nougat. Full-bodied with woody, slightly sourish twang on the finish.
