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.

good lord this is superb. Aroma pf vanilla, oak, caramel, toffee. malt. with hints of grass and resin. Appearance is clear with a one finger head and a reddish hue. Taste is vanillla oak , malt sweetness and a bitter backbone. Palate is a little thick and chewy but now overly so. Perfect for the style. Overall this is the bet barleywine I’ve had aged or not. Superb offering. Two in a row from uinta. Bravo!

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.

This is really a top-notch barleywine. Lots of molasses, tons of hops, a good hop bite throughout. A great sipping beer.

Pours without much head. Orange tinged nut brown color hints at richness. Requires some time to breathe after opening. Amazing complexity and flavor perhaps a result of three year old bottle.

My first reaction when I tried this beer, in a bourbon barrel version, was simply "Wow." It had great taste and great subtlety (for a barleywine ale) and the bonus of the bourbon barrel. Should all my beers be so powerful and profound.

This beer is AMAZING. It has a vanilla aroma. You really can smell the bourbon. It is a beautiful dark brown color with hints of red. The cream colored head last and sticks beautifully to the edge of the glass as if to count the number of sips you have taken. It starts off with a very strong complex flavor but isn't too heavy. For an 11% beer (sorry barley wine) it doesn't taste strongly if alcohol. It finishes cleanly with a taste of vanilla. This is one of my all time favorite can't get enough of it beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very good barleywine. Lots of dark fruit, some plum, vanilla, and wood. The bourbon barreling is evident.

Deep ruby brown color, thick off white head, great aromas of caramel malts and bourbon. Tastes very malty, the vanilla compliments the bourbon style beer. Great beer

Wow, another Crooked Line that goes straight to beer heaven! Poured at a good temperature with a huge, foamy, thick, billowy, light tan head and lots of lace. Color is a clear cherry amber with a couple of lazy bubble trails. Aroma is a heavy, hop, malt, fresh sawn wood, resin, black olives. Flavor’s like nose, bitter and tang up front, with a little malt and bourbon sweet, hints of dark chocolate. Body/carbonation are excellent. Finish is like flavor, the bitter hop veers a tad off, alcohol warmth, but still great sipping beer. Perfect to share with friends who are of the same mind.
