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.

weihenweizen (2627) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a snifter. Opaque Amber with small beige head. Aroma is rich caramel, medium body, medium carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is caramel malt. A little heavy.

kingaugusta (157) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Pours hazy copper with a big tan head. Nose is strange for a barley wine withfruit and tart notes far more akin to a saison. Oak and fruit hit hard on the front and blends to a whiskey accented charge of vanilla, hops, and barely onthe back. FFinish is long and smooth. Great beer.

wxman (1658) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Pours a clear dark garnet/amber with a fluffy light tan head. Bourbon and toffee aroma. Taste is roasted malt, molasses, dark chocolate, vanilla, dried dark fruit, bourbon and a noticeable hop bitterness. Quite good, but hoppier than a barleywine should be.

JStax (4299) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2015
750 ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a clear copper color with a big head of khaki foam. Lots of head on this beer. The aroma has burnt toffee, caramel, wood, some raisin. The taste has a lot of sweetness to it and a bigger boozy character. Big body and low to medium carbonation.

Bottle. Clear amber pour, thin beige head. Aroma of spicy malts, some bourbon, ripe fruits, caramel and somewhat spicy. Flavor is quite bitter, sweet malts and quite smooth. Nice spicy bourbon touch.

coachd (435) - Missouri, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Aroma of dark fruit, sweet malt and booze. Decent, but I could have used more. Beautiful looking dark brown nearly black color with a white head of foam that shows a striking contrast. Definitely tastes like bourbon barrel with barley wine characteristics showing through. The bourbon adds sweetness and makes the flavor less hoppy and harsh than many other barley wines. Palate is silky and again not harsh like others in this style. This was very easy drinking for the ABV and good overall.

Butelka. Barwa brunatna, lekko zamglona z niewysoką lecz utrzymującą się do samego końca pianą w kolorze ecru. Wspaniały aromat beczki, wanilii, czekolady, suszony owoców. Pojawiają się również aromaty tostowe. Smak tak jak zapach intensywnie złożony. Przede wszystkim dominuje wanilia, suszone owoce, czekolada. Słodycz umiarkowana. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej niezalegająca z lekko wyczuwalnym alkoholem. Finisz długi i złożony. Wysycenie średnie, piwo pełne treściwe do długiej degustacji. Wyśmienite piwo.
