Bottle at Craig’s. Pours clear dark brown with no head. Aromas of caramel, spice, burnt toffee. Taste is creme caramel, toffee, prunes, but dries out nicely on the finish for the strength. Some booze notes, dried fruit. PX almost.12th July, gusher tasting

Pretty good barleywine but I don’t think this is something I will be actively seeking more of. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle. Thanks Couch! Awesome aroma. Raisins, toffee, chocolate, cherries, figs, and vanilla. Tastes moderately sweet. Very light oxidation. Loads of dark fruit and smooth bourbon. Rich and delicious. Seems to have held up pretty well. BiiruBierBeer (1059) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Smell is bourbon, caramel, and vanilla. Taste is the same with the addition of chocolate. Nice texture, but has some mild alcohol taste and warmth. dwmiller16 (112) - Delaware, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bomber from 2011. Pours black with a bit of tan foam. Amazing nose of caramel and vanilla and bourbon and cocoa. Same flavor follow though on the palate with a very creamy mouthfeel. Excellent brew that shouldn't be passed up.

HMOG 2015. Loooong time want here. Hype withstanding, this is a gorgeous beer. Bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, molasses, oak, smooth booze, fig. The quality bourbon really does translate into a better beer. I have had Pappy barrels a handful of times and it just makes for some beautiful and smooth characteristics.
