Pours mahogany into a tulip. Head quickly recedes leaving no lacing. Honey, oak and treacle aromas. Thick and chewy with sweet syrup, honey and vanilla, maple syrup finish.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
In short: A sweet Sambuca flavored barley wine with only moderate bourbon barrel presence. Uninteresting
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed when probably one year of age. Bottle from a friend from the dark site of the beer web sites. Thanks Heath
The look: Mostly clear copper-bronze body, many small particles, medium beige head
In long: Unimposing nose of sweet pastry (baklavas comes to mind), barley candy and timid bourbon notes. Taste is malt sweetness over more malt sweetness, sucking a big kid barley candy lollipop, caramel, sweet sugary pasty, a big shot of Sambuca, raisin bread, some vanilla, light notes of bourbon soaked oak, star anise like spiciness. Full big doughy mouthfeel. Very very sweet. The Sambuca and anise-like spiciness were not much fun. Smooth at first but gets more and more abrasive the more you drink it, I almost didn’t finish my bomber. Another disappointing bottle from Heavy Seas, and you’d be surprised at how many people will try to avoid you if you walk towards them smiling and with a bottle of Heavy Seas in one hand and an axe in the other.

22 ounce bomber that pours a mahogany red color with very little tan head. Aromas of caramel malt, oak, vanilla, brown sugar, figs and dates. Flavor is much the same with a touch of bourbon initially. As the beer warmed, the bourbon flavor mellowed out with more of a vanilla finish. Real nice ber that I wish I had more of.

Bottle. Pours a bruin body with a light off white head. Boozy body, bourbon, woody boozy tones. Vanilla and caramel sweetness. Dark fruit tones with a medium etoh warming. Very rich and chewy. Ok.

Vintage 2012. Sa robe est plutôt rougeâtre et la longévité de son petit col mousseux m’étonne. Ses parfums de bourbon se font bien sentir. Ils demeurent toutefois bien enrobés par de riches malts caramélisés. Son nez est tout en simplicité et reste bien agréable tout au long de la dégustation. Ses saveurs de toffee et de caramel tapissent rapidement ma langue. La présence du bourbon n’est pas négligeable non plus. Il arrive bien chaud avec ses saveurs boisées et poivrées. Quelques notes de noix de coco et de vanille finissent par se signaler. Il y a peut-être derrière tout ce bruit la naissance de quelques notes fruitées. Sa bouche témoigne quelque peu d’un traitement subi par la barrique. J’aurais aimé davantage une texture plus forte. Sa finale est assez puissante et intense : le bourbon s’accapare de ma bouche mais refuse d’écraser les sucres maltés. Intéressante dégustation chez Ben. Merci pour ce digestif d’après-midi!

2012 22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light oak and bourbon and vanilla, caramel and toffee malts, light grains and dough, and some alcohol. Flavor the same. Average to smoother texture. A decent barley wine, but a little hot and not that balanced.

Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip. Appearance is a nice mahogany color with a white head and a tad bit of lacing. The nose is straight bourbon. A bit of light caramel and fruit in the background. The booze goes with the bourbon. Taste is predominantly bourbon again, but done quite well. Really nice feel with booze and bourbon plus a slight sweetness underneath. Much better than the original, though not quite as interesting as the cabernet version.

Dickinsonbeer (5073) - 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.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, slight dark ripe fruit, and a hint of oak. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a small, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Very hazy. Barely sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, slight Bourbon, slight vanilla, light oak, slight caramel, slight chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Slick, slightly viscous texture turns lightly dry. Soft to average carbonation. Malt, caramel, slight wood and light vanilla finish is dry. 10%ABV well hidden throughout.
