Sampled from 0.75 l bottle. Clear, dark reddish brown with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly yeasty-spicy and a little fruity aroma of caramel, prunes, raisins, vanilla and some oak. Rather sweet, malty, slightly yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity taste of caramel, prunes, raisins, vanilla and oak, followed by a long, moderately bitter, slightly yeasty-spicy and quite warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very tasty! Sammy (13136) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2016

Dark brown pour with very little carb. Nose is heavy raisins, dates and dark fruit. Taste is sweet with dark fruit and raisins. Full body but lack of carb detracts. Barrel qualities worked well with heavy malt profile. rxeight (3344) - Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2015

Bottle: The aroma consists caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, raisin, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, and alcohol. It pours a dark brown with some red highlights when held to the light. It has a minimal off-white head that quickly fades to almost nothing. The flavor starts with moderate caramel, chocolate, and light dark fruits. The finish has light-moderate brown sugar, light bourbon, vanilla, and a touch of oak. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, this tastes very much like BCS Barley Wine with just a touch of dark fruits in the background and maybe a little more alcohol in the nose.
Bottle. Color is dark brown with minimal head. Aroma is barrel and brown sugar. Taste is sweet bourbon. Very similar to bcbw Homer321 (5255) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Nearly black pour minimal head. Nose is sugary, lightly pepper. Taste is ok, I mean it’s a barrel aged quad. Good to above average but not mind blowing.
