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.

obguthr (4531) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Weak, but vaporous aroma of cherry and pits. Clear brown, headless. Weak bourbon flavor with a musty cherry edge. Musty moldy finish. Alcohol noticeable, but downplayed. Drinkable, but not exciting.

Beaver (1443) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2010
750ml bottle, bottled 4/1/10. Pours a medium brown (cola color) with a fairly large creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is bourbon, pepper, sweet caramel, some cola and some floral notes.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts, some cola and bourbon. The finish is some grassy bitterness and alcohol (pretty harsh and warming). The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, not too impressive. Itís not well balanced. The cola is odd and the bourbon and alcohol are overdone.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Aroma is vanilla and oak, a bit of cherry. Clear but opaque dark red and brown colour with only a small head. Has a syrup like thickness in the body, carries a lot of cherry, oak, some dry bourbon like notes and finshes pretty sweet with a lingering almost charred oak. Easy to drink and decently tasty but there is nothing here that stands out.

Sledutah (6012) - Utah, USA - MAY 27, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 750ml c&c bottle from the state warehouse
Appearance: Pours dark mahogany with a nice fluffy off-white head and lots of lacing
Aroma: Citrus, dark fruits and oak
Taste: Silky mouthfeel. Bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits with some hop bitterness, some hot alcohols in the finish.
This is very nice Barley Wine, Uinta has stepped it up with this latest series. It will be interesting to try this again after some aging.

Overml01 (227) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2010
í08 Bottle - Drank and shared on Motherís Day... Iíve been holding onto this one for a little while, so I forget who sent it my way, sorry. A very respectable Barleywine... definitly near itís peak. Brewed and then aged two years in bourbon barrels, this í08 bottle had lots of character that remained tempered and even throughout the experience. I still preferred the í08 FFF Behemoth that I had shortly afterwards, but well deseving of the honor of being shared around on Motherís Day.

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle shared by hellbilly -- thanks, Chef! Pours a murky amber color with a fleeting beige head. Smells and tastes of grape play dough, brown sugar, caramel, bourbon, and vitamins. Really improves after it has a chance to breath and warm up.
