drsordr (2587) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pours hazy dark brown to copper with thin tan head. Nose loads of toffee and caramel malt, some fall fruit, and hint of cognac. Taste big jammy fruit, maple syrup, tastes like port. Late palate some alcohol heat. Very syrupy mouth feel. Not what I was expecting but I like it.

BuckeyeBoy (7350) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle pours out a amber color topped with a small head. Nose is sweet toffee caramel barrel notes and some booze. Taste is more of the sweetness toffee caramel pit fruit bourbon barrel and some vanilla.

DuffMan (10139) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Beautiful deep orange brown with a thick, persistent golden head. Incredibly rich malty aroma, sponge toffee, brown bread, spicy raisins, woody undertones. Can a beer smell warm and inviting? This one invokes that feeling for sure. Big chewy malty palate, sticky but not cloying with the expected malt density that the aroma suggests. The cognac imparts a wonderful alchemy to this beer, spicy and rich without being boozy or harsh. A magnificent sipper.

BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2015
Really enjoyed this beer! Burnt tangerine/rusted metal/Sedona clay in color with a tightly packed eggshell head. All things sweet, spicy, and rich. Caramel, toffee, molasses, oak, vanilla, cognac, pepper, and even a little cocoa. A dessert beer for sure but thick, velvety, coating, and enjoyable!

Beerman6686 (6606) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2015
This poured a medium brown with basically no head. Aroma was lots of dark fruit, caramel, and light booze. Flavor was sweeter than I would like but manageable, lots of dark fruits, pruney, alcohol, not very complex though.

conway (2210) - - APR 6, 2015
Bottle. Dark ruby with thin wisps of off white head. Aroma is dark fruit, toffee and brown sugar. Taste follows and adds caramel, butterscotch and toast. Thick, rich and syrupy. Dead flat. Alcohol heat is present but very reasonable for the Abv. This beer is completely insane.

jkwood04 (5438) - Connecticut, USA - APR 5, 2015
750ml bottle at Split thy Skull barley wine fest. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of toffee, bourbon and oak and vanilla, light bitterness, some caramel and sweet malts, and some faint notes of alcohol. Flavor the same with a really nice blend of the beer and barrel and hidden alcohol. Smooth, thicker texture. A really cool barley wine.
