glennmastrange (2803) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of caramel and milk chocolate, moderate hop note of cooked orange, light earth for the yeast, with background notes of brown sugar, bourbon and alcohol. Head is small, frothy, off-white with some pretty good slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark murky brown. Flavor starts heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then the short finish is moderately bittersweet and lightly acidic. Palate is medium to full, creamy with a soft carbonation and finishes heavily alcoholic with a strong whiskey and coffee aftertaste. This beer really smells like a chocolate candy bar. Maybe a little to sweet and a touch watery in the end, but this is still a stand up Barley Wine.

Tmoney99 (14193) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Draft. Poured reddish brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, toasted malt, alcohol and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy dark fruit bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bourbon bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a complex standout beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bomber. Pours a mostly clear amber brown with a frothy fizzy head. Aroma is tons of caramel sweetness, earthy, hair, leather, oak, bourbon barrel, and some metallic hint with light herbal notes. Flavor is bourbon, oak, candy sugar sweetness, honey, toffee, toast, light burnt malts, ashy oak and old wood, and some astringency in the end with a light alcohol burn which comes from a thinning body in the end.

Bomber courtesy of Fiver29 thanks J! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a half finger light tan head. The nose is caramel, vanilla, dark fruits and sweet bourbon. The taste is oaky vanilla, molasses, toffee and bourbon. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Courtesy of markwise. It pours clear mahogany with tan head. The aroma starts with sweet bourbon and then moving toward mildly harsh boozy bourbon as well as prunes, figs, raisins, molasses and some heat at the end of the draw. The taste is smooth sweet inviting molasses, caramel, vanilla, sweet bourbon, spicy oak, raisins, figs and a thin strata of dates. Yummy.

Caramel malts, toffee, butterscotch. Vanilla is sweet and nicely present, some earthly notes in the finish. solid beer.

eaglefan538 (3042) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle from SL. Pour was orangey brown in color, nice initial head that dissipated quickly. The aroma was fruity malts, some darker fruits, bourbon too. The flavor followed and was pleasantly not over-bourboned where the base beer couldnt express itself (props to CC for that!). The fruits shined with caramel and some oak also present. Mouthfeel was full to slightly sticky, but not in a deterring way. A decent brew, but the bourbon aging isnt impressing me in general anymore.

jsh12bama (681) - Alabama, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Pours brown with thick off white head. Huge nose of bourbon, oak, and maple syrup. Palate is thinner than I expected. Taste of vanilla, bourbon, and oak. The bourbon definitely improves the base beer. Would like to have more to see how this ages.
