On tap at the bocktown, should stay below decks for a few years before they tap this again. Just a clean simple aroma. Big raw American wannah bee barly wine with shades of whisky in there. These course BW wannah beez are simply that. There is a slight hint of harvies in there I think but it may be my imagination. Almost triggers that gag reflex. does not hide alky well. cloying finish

Brune aux reflets rubis. Nez trs puissant de sucre cuit, dalcool et de fruits rouges. Le bois du baril perce avec vidence. Bouche trs sucres et boise avec une finale tonnante qui me fait penser au chipotle (un peu fum et piquant).

Vintage 2012. Sa robe est plutt rougetre et la longvit de son petit col mousseux mtonne. Ses parfums de bourbon se font bien sentir. Ils demeurent toutefois bien enrobs par de riches malts caramliss. Son nez est tout en simplicit et reste bien agrable tout au long de la dgustation. Ses saveurs de toffee et de caramel tapissent rapidement ma langue. La prsence du bourbon nest pas ngligeable non plus. Il arrive bien chaud avec ses saveurs boises et poivres. Quelques notes de noix de coco et de vanille finissent par se signaler. Il y a peut-tre derrire tout ce bruit la naissance de quelques notes fruites. Sa bouche tmoigne quelque peu dun traitement subi par la barrique. Jaurais aim davantage une texture plus forte. Sa finale est assez puissante et intense : le bourbon saccapare de ma bouche mais refuse dcraser les sucres malts. Intressante dgustation chez Ben. Merci pour ce digestif daprs-midi!

Le liquide est dun brun rougetre opaque et trouble.Le col sestompe rapidement et laisse un anneau de mousse en plan.Au nez,des notes drables,dalcool,de caramel et de bourbon.Au got,cest doux et sucr lentre,suivi par un relent de bourbon qui est juste et pas trop intense avec une fin toute en chaleur que lon sent bien descendre dans la gorge.Jai bien aim cette bire qui est sans grande clat mais bien fait.

Vanilla and malt aromas, not overpowering but pleasant. Dark amber hue with off-white, small bubbles in the head. Taste is winelike but malty with vanilla and roasted notes.

Im not a huge fan of bourbon flavored beer so this one wasnt for me but it was still made well, slight burned malt and dark fruit flavor with a whiskey finish

jrob21 (3551) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours a muddy reddish brown. Syrupy vanilla and a big raisin flavor. Nice barley wine here with the ageing adding to and not overpowering the overall experience. Bourbon alcohol aroma. A bit of muted spy sauce ont he flavor definitely a sipping kind of beer and would do much better on a cold witty night as opposed to the sunny warm spring day we are having here today.

On tap Blackthorn Pub Holly,MI... surprisingly pale colored and clear for a barley wine with a small whitish head; this beer is striking due to the unique combo of oak, whiskey, and wine. All flavors assert themselves without overpowering each other. Crisp and non-cloying on the finish this is an outstanding BW.

Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle pours a clear reddish-brown with brief bubbly white head. Aroma sweet malts with faint oak and a hint of sourness. Taste sweet caramel/toffee malts with slight bourbon and vanilla. Oaky finish. Palate full with alcohol burn, could be just a little thicker but did not detract. Alcohol evident.

This is not particularly complex but does a nice job - straightforward barleywine with a nice proportion of bourbon and quite a bit of oak.
