Cloudy dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Smooth and slightly soft palate with mild fine carbonation. Intense malt with a lot of lactose. Bourbon and sweet coconut. Aniseed alcohol. Semi dry finish. Nothing subtle about this big ol’ BA Barleywine. Good though!

750ml bottle. Deep amber color, almost brown with a small sized off white head. Aromas of wood, oak, caramel, and malty. Tastes of wood, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, and port. hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. An olfactory delight – caramel, brown sugar, praline, bourbon and oak. Full-bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and tender carbonation. The flavor is a terrific balance of caramel, roastiness and tannic bitterness. Finishes bittersweet with a very light acidic twang.

Black Friday tasting. Quite an interesting brew. All of the normal flavors in a BW you would expect then the mix of the pinot barrels and hops...quite unique and good. DocLock (10836) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle from CAH. Pours deep brown w 1f ow head. Nose is huge scottish malt, tobacco, raisin, oaky spirits, prune. Tastes very scotch malty, earthy, very oaky and cognacy, with hops, prune, and fine tobaco notes, and a very rich, very complex palate. Oaky and spirity as hell, while maintaining a good balance. This one went great with a maduro Fuente cigar and a hunk of aged cheddar. cubs (10677) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2012

Pour out of bottle is dark reddish brown with thin to no white head, aroma has notes of port and wine notes, hints of dark fruit, caramel, some slight wine and oak notes as well. Thanks to Aaron for the pour! Taste has notes of wine and port notes, with big sweet cherry and dark fruit notes, hints of vanilla, finish with a hint of booze but not bad. Nice brew!

Courtesy of beer rating maven hopdog, thanks Steve! Pours clear amber with thin tan head. The aroma is yummy with brown sugar, dates, prunes and some mild caramel notes followed by booze. The taste is similar with brown sugar coated prunes, raisins and cherries along with some rich malt sweetened pine hops off in the background. Yummy smooth stuff where all the age on it has done nothing adverse to the experience.
