3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle thanks to dogbrick. The ber is a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has orange and lemons linit, but also has a roasty ashy character. The beer tastes mostly sweet, but that citrus sort of svens it out and makes for a juicy citrusy character. Big body and medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to snifter. Dark amber pour, fairly cloudy, pencil-thin offwhite head that leaves a slight ring. Big hit of bourbon in the aroma, with some allspice and orange peel coming after. Taste has a strong vanilla/bourbon flavor with the orange and oak barrel coming in after. Really distinct flavors at first, but rounds out a bit better as it sits. Nice, boozy finish.

Cloudy dark amber color with small head. Itís a good, warming American Barley Wine, well malty, moderately hopped, moderately sweet, with mild alcohol perception, and quite strong vanilla bourbon character.
A good sipper.

A nice bourbon beer, we have had better, but this is tasty and belly-warming. Pours a cloudy Amber with a tan head. Smells of bourbon, Apple and cherries. Taste is mostly bourbon, with lots of cherries and some cucumber in the finish. Heavy finish. Had in the bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy dark brown with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bourbon sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle shared with the group. Pours a clear deep amber color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, bourbon, vanilla, cherry, some citrus, boozy, all the flavors didnít really play well together early, but this started to improve for me as it warmed, bourbon calmed down a bit and the other things came out a bit more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pours hazy orange copper with thin ecru head. Nose caramel, toffee, dank, and earthy light spicy Bourbon and just a hint of citrus . Taste again similar to nose but not getting much of the fruit. Some stronger alcohol. . Bitterness comes off as astringent instead of pleasing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle, PDT 5/20/2013- Pours a nice hazy dark orange with a light tan thin yet sustaining head and some lace. Aroma is bourbon, coconut, oak, toffee, roasted marshmallows. The taste is velvety smooth, toasted coconut, marshmallows, oak, not really getting much of the fruit, mellow warming feeling, booze presents itself as it warms. Not sure how this tasted fresh but this really good, i do wish the cherries were more prominent though.
