Bottled sample, 2005 edition. Pale amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of grainy malts, a bit of vanilla, and a hint of sherry (oxidation).In the mouth things go all wrong, with loads of lacitic sourness. Very odd that a beer that looked and smelled so nice, had such a gross flavor, even when taking its age into consideration. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 3, 2010
Bottle, 2008 (in NZ). Looks great in the glass, with rich caramel on the nose. A creamy palate. The malt is grainy for me, with apple, vanilla and oak. Just a bit OTT to me.

02/02/2010. 650ml bottle, 2008 version, courtesy of TheGrandmaster. Nice warming rose-gold barleywine with hops trying to squeeze out... just a little cloying and bursting with fragrant alcohol notes to wax lyrical about. Oaky finish. Would be better shared between four than two. Boutip (6336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2009
Bottle: Poured a deep clear copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of vanilla a bourbon with deep rich sweet malt. Taste is quite dominated by loads of sweet caramel malt with dry raisins and loads of vanilla from th bourbon. Body is slightly fuller then average with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol which is surprising considering the bourbon is so present. Well done thought the barrel aging takes too much spaces and it is sometime hard to taste the base beer.

Tnx JBrus! Aroma has fruit, malts. My note says porridge. But I forgot what I meant with it. Hazy, orange coloured beer with an off-white, thin head. The taste is sweet, has brandy, piney hops and caramel malts. Quite a heavy finish, this beer has.
