RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Pours a clear auburn, with a small, but lacy buttered-popcorn head. Nose is extremely sweet with vanilla bean, butterscotch, caramel, tobacco, and with lighter notes of earthier malts, and bourbon. The taste starts strong and sweet of butterscotch, caramel, and transitions into bourbon, and lightly toasted toffee. Body is medium, but slightly chewy toward the finish.

MacBoost (1782) - Penfield, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Pours an almost clear amber with a small off white head. Strong aromas of bourbon in the nose, along with some fig. Taste is not overly sweet, but heavy on the bourbon. Not boozy though, just bourbon-y. Alcohol hidden, not hot. Light carbonation. Very nice. Buzzed quick.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Bomber into snifter glass. deep reddish-brown color with thin white head that disappears into a ring. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, dark fruits and some vanilla. Taste is the aroma, adding some spiciness, chocolate and alcohol. Full body, low carbonation smooth with somewhat boozy finish. Warming and complex. IMHO much better then their regular Barleywine!

Chudwick (2914) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - FEB 14, 2013
El bombero del diablo (2012) - pours murky amber with yellowish-brown head and it lacing. Nose is bourbony and sugary. Flavor adds alcohol, caramel, and rye. Sweetnd quite so. Apple/pear aftertaste. Dominated by the bourbon, but it might reveal more goodness as it warms. Bitter (unripe almond) taste in the back of the throat. Provides a literary buzz (Naked Lunch movie reference).

Bomber pours a hazy burnt orange with a think brown head. Aromas of bourbon oak and some bread and a bit of yeast. Flavor is semi sweet with a boozy oaky flavor. Body is medium to full with a good aged oak finish

gpekar (494) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Poured a clear dark chestnut orange (like a strong iced tea). There was a thin light beige head that dropped to just a film rather quickly. The aroma was primarily bourbon along with vanilla and dark fruits. The beer had a nice silky thicker texture and a nice bourbon flavor right up front along with the alcohol warmth. There is a nice sweetness of raisins, brown sugar and molasses to balance the alcohol flavor. The overall flavor mellows well into the finish with just a light alcohol bite and a big alcohol warmth. This was great for a cold snowy winter night.

Deep reddish pour with a white head that fades to a ring with sticky lacing left behind. Big bourbon, oak, and vanilla on the nose. The taste is oak, vanilla, bourbon, and a hint of dark fruit and brown sugar. Pretty hot, think Ill lay the rest down for a couple of years.

Pours a dark brown with a very thin head. The aroma is quite subdued with just a bit of wood and some caramel. The flavor is quite nice, the caramel comes through with a good bit of hoppy bitterness. The after taste is quite nice and lasting.

Its time! Well, it looks just like a barley wine. Thats a good sign. Theres a slight release from opacity, with a dark amber colored body and an off-white head. The aroma is not what youd normally expect form a barley wine, though. It seems very much of dark caramel malts in the aroma so much so that it almost smells like tobacco. The flavor is somewhat syrupy, thick, and herbal. Wow, its unique. It feels like an imperial IPA in the mouth, but smooth and light from the oak aging. It finishes much stronger than an imperial IPA, though, high in alcohol, slightly malty, and with a definite hop presence thats well-infused with that alcohol. I love it. The bourbon is gentle, but defines much of the beers character. Why do I want to watch TrueBlood?
