Poured from a 12 oz bottle a cloudy brown color.No head and the aroma was amazing right out of the bottle. Bourbon, bourbon, bourbon, oak and dates. Tasted like drinking a lightly carbonated smooth bourbon. I really enjoyed this barley wine but its not one Iíd drink often or have more than one.

Aroma of vanilla, creme brule, caramel and oak. Pours hazy orange red with very little film. Taste is sweet and oaky with great vanilla, toffee and bourbon notes. A little too much wood but very nice!

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very good, aroma is dried fruit with a little bit of boozy notes. Appearance is right on target, dark amber with very little head. Taste is where this thing becomes so dynamic. I?m getting spice notes from the wood, oak vanilla flavors, super smooth and you really don?t tastes the alcohol. Overall, very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy cider-amber color with no head at all. There are some cola type carbonation bubbles that migrate from the bottom of the glass to the surface of the beer, but once that fades, which is very quickly, this looks like a glass of ice tea. Vanilla, toffee, and some tart non-citrus fruit on the nose. Mouthfeel is pretty full and wet with a little carbonation sting on the back and edges of the tongue. Iím not sure Iíd want much more carbonation than that with this beer. It warms your mouth right up. Thereís some tart cherry, some vanilla, and some sweet, buttery toffee. The flavors fade before the alcohol evaporates, so thereís a bit of an off-putting alcohol flavor that lingers. Itís a pretty good beer overall. Itís appearance is a trip though.

Bottle. Pouts a dark amber. Head gone very fast no lacing. Smell itís heavy booze little oak. Dark fruits. Surprising how sweet it is. Very hot close to the hotness I got from a few of the fiftyfifty eclipses. Good beer def needs time to mellow out Iíd say six oz is more then enough for one sitting. Eh maybe Iím a light weight now heavy shit here.

Kind of a rough bwine...no head low carbonation...single sided with the simple emphasis on the oak barrels and not much else.. Hard to drink.. Not my ideal bwine
