Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Big sweet aroma oak barrel and whiskey aroma. This was very sweet bourbon flavored with a big alcohol finish. This would be a perfect after dinner drink.

Had a whole lot of this beer on draft as I was pouring for Bull & Bush at GABF. This was my favorite of their lineup there. The appearance is a thick medium nut brown color, and a large two-finger yellowish head sits on top of the beer. Amazing aroma of caramel, toffee, port wine, sweet cherries, oak, and whiskey. Really a heavenly smell, similar to Angels Share or something of the like. The flavor is a little over-the-top sweet, but other than that its amazing. Big-time caramel malts and sweet toffee, candied dates, sugar plums, and cherries, with a subtle and well-integrated whiskey barrel note. Very decadent. Thick and rich on the mouthfeel with average carbonation, full body, and a slick, oily texture. An excellent -bal aged barleywine. I really love this style, and this is a great example of it.

GABF 2007: Poured a hazey deep brown color with a beige head. Fruity with milk chocolate make up the aroma. Bourbon and vanilla show up but blend so well. The flavor is full of fruit with some more notes of chocolate. Full bodied. This is smooth and warming but the alcohol takes a back seat. Yummy.

TURDFERGUSON (4051) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Pours an opaque muddled brown with an yellow tinted off-white head. Nose is a bit extreme: big fusel alcohol, bourbon, sweetness. Flavor is very sweet and boozy. Thick, thick palate but I really didnt want to drink much of this.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours the color of bourbon, a clear dark reddish brown. Has a medium white head that thins out fast. Super thick pancake syrup. Its a bit over the top with all the sweetness. I think this beer could benefit from more attenuation to a lower gravity or at least they could have used some really big-ass hops to balance out all the sugars.

Fresh wood barrel, syrup/walnut aroma. An apple-cideresque hazy brown. A nice warming whiskey barrell syrupy walnut flavor.

Crushed at BSAF 10. Pretty sweet brew. Very fruity with some vanilla and other whiskey notes. More sweet than anything, but pretty solid.
