imperial_suchy (698) - Rybnik, POLAND - OCT 19, 2018
Piwo koloru ciemnej miedzi z rubinowymi refleksami, pianka w postaci obrączki. W aromacie słodko i bourbonowo. Czuć suszone owoce, karmel, dębina, kokos, wanilia, nuty ciemnych owoców, alkohol niewyczuwalny. W smaku świetnie ułożone, dobry balans między słodyczą a wytrawnością. Czuć karmel, suszone owoce, dużo wanilii i kokosa, lekka kwiatowość, mokre drewno, nuty tostowe i nawet delikatna orzechowość. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewa podniebienie. Sporo ciała, niskie nasycenie (praktycznie go nie ma). Mega dostojne, eleganckie i degustacyjne piwo, swietnie zbalansowane i smaczne. Najlepszy barley wine BA jaki do tej pory piłem.

ClarkVV (8565) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2018
2013 375mL bottle drunk 10/12/18.
Dark mahogany with cola tints. Good clarity. Beige head fades steadily to a ring.
Oh ya, lovely bourbon and oak mix with toffee and molasses, very lightly warming alcohol and soft vanilla. Spicy and full with light chocolate and raisin lingering.
In the mouth, it's soft, slippery, spicy and full of a good mix of oak and bourbon. Everything has aged incredibly well, with little/no oxidation and great malt and wood integration. Super low but tight carbonation with chocolate and vanilla longering alongside fruity esters and warming alcohol. Thins out on the very end with very spicy bourbon and vanilla lingering. Goid attenuation. Lightly sticky at times but not sugary or syrupy in the least.

oobawa (3074) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2018
Thick, sweet, and syrupy, with an unrelenting booziness bordering on overpowering. Not that this is a bad thing: BBA Angels Share is malt pushed to its indulgent extremes, a celebration of fermentation with nary a care as to balance or restraint. Waves of caramel, toffee, date, and fig fade into a booze-fueled bourbon extravaganza on the finish, wood and vanilla and a mild hop bitterness trying in vain to offset the liquor flood. Good, but I'd be hard-pressed to finish a pint; eight ounces are plenty.

Nische (3544) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2018
Bottle at home. Hazy copper brown with a brief, beige head. Massive aroma and taste of vanilla, caramel, bourbon and toffee. Quite sweet, yet the light roast is balancing it out elegantly. Great sipper!

heman (2569) - TYCHY, POLAND - AUG 13, 2018
Barwa brunatna. Aromat intensywny, suszone owoce (rodzynki, daktyle), melasa, nuty palonego karmelu i b. intensywna beczka: wanilia, kokos, migdały. W smaku słodkie, pełne i bogate: suszone owoce, karmel, bardzo wyraźna beczka, dużo wanilii i kokosa. Finisz lekko taninowy, nieco alkoholowy, rozgrzewający.

gramity (1829) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2018
180417 bottle. [backlog] Beer to celebrate the birth of our twins! Delicious. Great end to an unforgettable day. Pours hazy brown, not really any carbonation there. Soft toffee nose, sweet milk chocolate, not really roasted, more like going into molasses direction. Taste has lots of sweetness, dried brown fruits, figs, some plums and lots and lots of molasses.

beer-yum (2918) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 9, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2018 Alluring aroma in an inky black pour. Massive semi-sweet chocolate flavor with hints of liquorice, aniseed, coffee, and vanilla (amongst others). An excellent example of the style - albeit dangerously delicious.

sjogro (8774) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2018
Bottle at puttetjes. Brown with no head. Sweet roasted malts, caramel, overripe strawberries, leathery, grainy bourbon, tutti fruity and massive vanilla smoothness. Big sweet and moderate bitter. Full body and soft carbonation.

Maakun (10314) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2018
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Hazy dark brown with small short lasting beige head. Massive bourbon, sweet vanilla, toffee, fudge, brandy, light alcohol, raisins, brown sugar, creamy vanilla pudding. Quite sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied with slick feel, soft carbonation and some booze. Lovely.
