25.4 oz bottle. Clear orange brown with thick white foam. Nose is bourbon, butterscotch, grass and peach schnapps. Hot and oliy with a tang and a bite. Taste is melon, bourbon, maple, citrus peel and wheat. Kind of a boozy mess but OK with me. AirForceHops (7233) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 19, 2014
750 ml bottle split 4 ways. Aroma is bacon soaked in maple syrup and bourbon. Love the nose! darb85 (281) - Canton, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2014
The flavor start with maple and light sugar followed by vanilla and mild bourbon notes. Oak barrel is light with the alcohol only showing with a very mild warming after the sip. I didn’t sample this fresh because of what it is. The texture was a little oily with a better than average body. The sweetness seems like it would take over but splitting this 4 ways is about perfect.
Very strong bourbon nose with white wine finish. Very odd but it is well balanced. Good taste but just not my thing. Mark_Eck (1948) - - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orangish color. Aroma and taste are sweet maple, bourbon, and vanilla.

750 ml bottle from Homer321. Nose is maple syrup, oaky vanilla, nut bread, and a hint of bourbon. Crystal clear orange with a small beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, nuts, toffee, and wood. Very nice BA barleywine. demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Shared 750ml. Aroma is hot alcohol. Beautiful copper. Very sweet with a wheat touch. Very smooth finish. John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 10 months old going by the release date. Burnt orange, soapy thin head. Aroma is sweet bourbon, vanilla, and candied sugar. The taste adds warm maple syrup notes, brown sugar, heavy malts, oak, a little coconut, some citrus fruit on the finish. Very big and complex. The 12.6% is very noticeable. Warm lingering bourbon boozy feel in the aftertaste that sits in your chest. -- I also had this fresh. 10 months really didn’t change it at all. Huge and rich. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone salvaticas (770) - - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at Novare Res in Portland, Maine. Rich on the nose, hard to pin down. First thought was it smells like a swimming pool. Incredibly rich flavor but still a smooth palate. Very complex. Good.
