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.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2011 A tall head and strong on the aroma. Fat and malty with a strong hop presence. Good effers and a creamy texture. A good sipping brew with defined whiskey essence and a long finish.

From tap at Toronado, Barley Wine Fest 2010. Pours clear and deep amber to maghoni brown with a lacing tan head. Aroma is dark spiced and roasted malty with a dark toffeeish note. Bitter, overripe fruity and light spiced flavoured. Bone dry and bitter finish.

eaglefan538 (2914) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle shared by Bert at SL. Pour was reddish-brown, weak head and lacing. The aroma was dark fruits, caramel, bourbon. The flavor was dark fruits, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, something with a slight vegetal touch too. The mouthfeel was big, oily, sticky. Not a bad shot at BBA, better than drinkable, but not great.

MeadMe (1385) - Riverview, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2010
A: Pours a nice copper hue with a thin off white head. No real retention or lace noted. S: Malty aromas. Brown sugar, toffee, and caramel lead the way. Mild notes of oak and booze as well. T: Same as the aroma. Some chocolate and lots of candy malts. The barrel comes through nicely. Hints of oak, vanilla, and booze. M: On the fuller side of medium, rich, sweet, smooth, a bit boozy.

sloth (2582) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Small tan head with fair retention, little lacing. Clear deep amber in color. Nose of whisky, caramel malts, chocolate, a hint of alcohol, wood and some phenolic notes. Body is full, oily on the palate with a soft carbonation. Bourbon flavors up front with woody notes and vanilla. Unfortunately i,m pickin up some bandaid notes as well. They seem a bit more as the brew warms. Warming fruity alcoholly finish. Bandaid takes away, gets almost overpowering. Bottle procured in trade with footbalm. Thanks Eric!

IrishBoy (3910) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Bomber from Footbalm, sahred by Odeed! Thanks Eric and Jake!! Bottled in 2008. Nose of bourbon, vanilla, prunes, and woody oak. Clear cherry brown with a small lightly lacing beige head. Tastes of bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, and tobacco musty note that seems like a cross between a barleywine and an old ale. Must be the two years in the barrel.

Beerman6686 (4980) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2009
This poured a dark red color with an off white head. Aroma was lots of caramel, sweet sugar, and lots of barrel and bourbon. Flavor was lots of barrel, which covered up the complexities of the barleywine. Not much caramel or dark fruits, just barrel.
