Don’t know where to start, so much going on. Caramel, toffee, wood, bourbon, warmth. Nice creamy thick head and lacing. Makes my lips tingle. Drake (13726) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a large frothy off-white head. Aroma of toffee, wood, bourbon, mild raisin. The taste is toffee, vanilla, wood, apple skins, bourbon. Medium bodied, mild heat. Underdogs88 (325) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Strong Bourbon character on the nose. Appearance is very dark brown with a small tan head with poor retention. Flavor is full of bourbon and oak with notes of chocolate. Roast character is smooth. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a well made bourbon barrel stout. Bourbon flavors are high now, but with age they will blend in with the beer. It's a good beer to age.

Aroma of bourbon, oak and caramel. Appearance is a cloudy brown with a medium sized white head. Bourbon flavor is strong. Oak is in support. Malt contains some hints of caramel. Medium fruity esters. Hop bitterness is high which provides some citrus notes. Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium low carbonation. Alcohol warmth is present and strong. Overall, there is too much bourbon flavor and not enough malt complexity.

Really tasty and drinkable barleywine. Carmel taste up front, then the wood, and a tasty sticky hop finish.

Pours a dark amber with light white head. Has a strong dark fruit and malt aroma. Has a heavy dark fruit, malt, caramel, and raisin taste. A medium body. User37895 (3042) - - OCT 21, 2014
Been a while since really enjoying a bourbon barreled anything. But this one worked. Pour was orangey brown, thin head that dissipated to about nothing, thin ring around the edges, weak lacing. Aroma of bourbon, toasted caramel, citrus, vanilla, oak sawdust. Flavor followed, fruity character and raisins, slight smoke, good bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel moderate for the style, well short of sticky to which was appreciated. Good stuff. IndianaRed (4610) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Loved this Thanks PinkZambia for sharing. Terrific bourbon barleywine flavors and a smooth soft palatte. Alittle more bite at the end. Probably even better after 6 months in the basement pinkzambia (1931) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle: Light brown with a tan head. Aroma is spectacular - vanilla, alcohol, good Kentucky bourbon. Smooth flavors - almost tastes more like bourbon than beer. A little hoppy presence in the finish. Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a murky amber light brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is heavy caramel malts, molasses, light bourbon, oak, vanilla. Flavor packs a bit more of the bourbon characteristics, sweet molasses, oak, vanilla. Medium body with a nice warmth to it. Lingering bourbon and vanilla. Definitely one of the better offerings from DuClaw.
