(Thanks, Cory! "BlowOffTube") Bottle. A- Coconut, vanilla, cherry, oak, booze. A- Mahogany color, clear liquid, beige head. T- Cherry, oak, boozy, coconut, butterscotch. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- A little hot and boozy but overall a hell of a lot smoother than one could expect going in. Well balanced and complex. A bit of time on this and its be swell and mellow.

JBPortland (1526) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2016
12os bottle 2014 vintage pours clear ruby dark red with half finger fizzy head. Nose and taste have lots of big gooey caramel and sweet raisin, plum, fig and various dark fruit, touches of light vanilla spice, bread, cherry and big malty sweetness. Very good but not quite as good as BB4D.

Massive amounts of caramel, sweet and lightly roasted malts. Sweet vanilla cream and oak blend nicely. Moderate heat front the alcohol but really walk balanced.

rxeight (2866) - Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2016
12 oz bottle, 2015 edition. intense caramel and hard candy. Oak vanilla toffee. Lots of spirit but not boozy. Some heavy and flavorful stuff, tastes every bit of the advertised 15%. Thick stuff for a barleywine.

chucklemation (1525) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma is dark fruits, oak, caramel, toffee, butter, and vanilla. Flavor is very similar, with the oak less pronounced, replaced with a boozy heat. Sweet and thick-bodied. This is terrific.

Caramel and dark fruits and molasses and bourbon and vanilla and this is basically exactly the English BABW youd dream of.

12oz bottle from Kuhnhenn. Pours amber. No head. Aroma is very pleasant caramel corn, brown sugar, molasses and alcohol. Flavor is hot, metallic, caramel and bitter with a very thin body. Bourbon barrel is imperceptible, except in the hot, biting alcohol. It should be noted that this is a 2014 and drinking very young. Overall, hoping this beer improves with age. Will re-rate. Did not finish the bottle between a tasting group of five. BB4D blows this beer out of the water.
