UPDATED: APR 23, 2018 Donkeroranje, koperkleurig bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt tot fijn laagje. Mout, bourbon, barrel, eik, caramel, butterscotch, beetje rood fruit. Lange warme afdronk met een tinteling op het tandvlees. Medium bitter. Zéér mooi.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2018 Murky brown red color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, wood, bourbon, light booze.

Aroma of alcohol, biscuit, sugar and dark fruit, lots of burbon, wood and vanilla. Cloudy brown color with small sized tan head. Sweet taste with lots of biscuit, sweet chocolate, hazelnuts, plums, burbon and caramel. Didn't detect any alcohol in taste. Full body, flat, some burning effect. Lovely. //tap at Brewdog Manchester

Pours beautiful ruby amber with light, thin beige head. Aroma is bourbon, caramel and just a whiff of vanilla. Taste is first sweet caramel, moving wood and hop backbone. Finish is smooth bourbon. A very tasty barleywine.

Started an evening at the Amherst brewery with this one, completely throwing off the tastebuds and making other offerings seem like a Bud Light for the following hour or so. This barleywine has a surprisingly large hop blast, which the menu listed at 80 IBU -- less than in previous years, if web searches are accurate. The big oaky-vanilla aroma is consistent with other CW Brewer's Reserve offerings. Sweet finish again gets some disagreement from the generous hopping. An overall delight.
