Bottle. Pale orange with copper tinge, creamy beige head. Sweet, mango, booze, vanilla, oak, maple syrup, some wheat wine characteristics, full body with mild carbonation, slightly buttery on the palate and more so on the finish, become a bit dry and more boozy on the finish. An acquired taste. italianjohn (3143) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pale to clear golden orange pour with a thin soapy white head and striped sticky lacing .... aroma of coconut, vanilla, maple syrup, bourbon, oranges, spices and some booze .... taste is of vanilla, oak, coconut, bourbon, spicy and sweet maple syrup, caramel and bitter orange rind ... creamy mouthfeel ... finish is dry and spicy with a nice sweet syrupy dry bourbon lingering bite ... definitely lives up to the name abv is evident LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 27, 2014

Aroma: Banana, rum, light citrus, toffee.
Taste: Vanilla, banana cream pie, Euro hop spice, big woody spirit barrel, spiced rum.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, modest carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable and boozy now, this beer won’t fall apart with a year or two on it, so if you want to lay it down, go for it.
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with a medium light cream colored head. Unfiltered, with lots of particles floating all around. Aroma of bourbon, maple, wheat and candied malt. Taste of sweet candied malt, bourbon, maple and wheat. Nice treat. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Amber pour with a short, bubbly white head. Been sitting for a while and still has a strong boozy and fruity aroma. Lots of bourbon, vanilla, soft coconut, fruit notes and oak. Taste is BIG vanilla and bourbon, toasted coconut, oak, sweet malt, ripe fruits, alcohol, citrus, floral hops, toasted grains and caramel. Body is medium-full and has a soft, prickly carbonation. Very sticky and boozy with LOTS of warmth to this! Ends with more booze, ripe fruits, coconut, vanilla, oak, bourbon, candied fruit, toasted malt, caramel notes and citrus.

Bottled. Pours deep orange with a white head. Fantastic bourbon like aroma, Very sweet, but pleasing flavors. Butterscotch and bourbon, with a hint of maple. Too sweet to drink much of, but a wonderful bottle to split. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle:   Orangish, a little hazy, soft sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet nose, some strong candied citrus peel, soft bourbon, a little maple syrup.   Whoa, super strong and thickly sweet on the tongue.   Noticeable heat, astringent bourbon, and unfinished maple syrup.   This one is too much.   Not smooth or refined.   Its really brash and hot.   Hard to finish even half the bottle.   Thanks Kevin! fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Cloudy amber in appearance. Aroma is nice, sweet caramel and oak. Taste is pretty sweet as well with oak, caramel, vanilla, and scotchy malt. Tasty brew. bwa5879 (943) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Really cloudy reddish brown with very little white head. Floral scents, lots of honey, very oaky. Average carbonation with a thick sticky mouthfeel and supremely clean finish. Taste is pretty peaty and bitter, very earthy, sweet oakiness and honey as well as molasses molasses prevent it from being too bitter. Good barley wine for me as it’s not too bitter and peaty.

Honey and bourbon dominate this release. Very sweet and dessert forward, almost in the region of a fortified wine. Heavy maltiness - a warming heat comes through but does not overwhelm
