Thanks to Stopbarking for this one! Hazy copper pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is creamy, vanilla, bourbon and toffee. Caramel, toffee, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and dates. Nice warming finish!

bottle shared at RBWG, pours murky brown. Aroma is vanilla some bourbon and wood tones. Flavor is more of the same. Very mellow bourbon and vanilla with a strong caramel malt flavor. Very good.

decaturstevo (6022) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2010
Hazed orange/brown pour with tan head and lace. Bourbon, dried dates on the aroma. Dried fruit, and bourbon barrel dominate the flavor. A tad thin and watery. A very nice beer.

JK (5975) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2010
Thanks to Dalzale for sharing this one. Lots of caramel and toffee in the aroma. Alcohol is present in the flavor and on the palate, but I didnt realize it is quite as strong as it is. Some vanilla. While the alcohol is present throughout, I dont pick up the bourbon. Overall a sweet, alcohol-laden barleywine. Not a bad bourbon aged beer, perhaps because I dont taste the bourbon.

nimbleprop (7867) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 9, 2010
12oz bottle pours a watery, opaque brown with zero head. Aroma is apples, brandy, wood pulp. Flavor is sweet, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, slightly pulpy. Finish is a little hot and boozy.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
Rich sherry and caramel aromas with great vanilla notes. Pours a reddish amber with no head. Creamy vanilla with caramel, very smooth, finishes sweet and spicy with alcohol notes. Awesome sipping beer!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
355mL thanks to ryan I think at DC Elite. Hard to believe this turns out so well with such a mediocre base. Rich rum raisin, mellow bourbon, vanilla nose. Taste is full of hot, warming bourbon; vanilla; rich maltiness. Still a little syrupy sweet.

brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2010
Thanks a ton ryan. Pours a very thick and dark brown. Has a very strong aroma thats *almost* perfectly balanced, but its a tiny bit boozy- other than that, a nice mix of bourbon, raisins, alcohol, and sweet cherries. Taste is quite strong the whole way through, starting off dominated by sweet raisins and bourbon, fading to alcohol and bitter malt. Finish has some bitter malt, alcohol and bourbon.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2010
Opaque chocolate brown pour. Almost no carbonation. Grainy pour with lots of bourbon. Notes of honey, chocolate, and maple syrup. Nice balanced bourbon flavor with chocolate and lots of grain. A bit boozy on the finish.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Thanks DalzAle pours dark copper, very low carbonation. Aroma was strong bourbon, cherry fruit, vanilla Caramel/toffee body with a full vanilla flavour, some cherry and some oatmealish tones. Bourbon presence is well integrated.
