TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Bottle from Hopscotch consumed at Carolina Crew tasting St. Pattys 2007. Thanks for the hookup Eric! I was pretty faded by the time we got to this baby, but it still made its own unique impact on my palate. Nose and flavor are strong and bold: sticky bourbon, sweet malts, brown sugar, alcohol. Chewy, thick palate. A lot like the other two big Kuhnhenn brews Ive had. Never short on flavor or on packing the punch.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2008
12oz bottle. Big boozy nose with raisin and vanilla aromas supporting the bourbon. I will also swear to have detected a whiff of cheddar cheese. Poured a hazy dark orange color with a thin light tan head. Didn’t taste at all as I had anticipated. I tasted controlled bourbon, but there was also distinct lemon up front and some bitter almond at the end. It was medium bodied and both sweet and acidic. Interesting barley wine.

lampeno420 (320) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Not as bad as someone might think. The bourbon is so well controlled it works wonders with this brew. Its still in there and works right along with the 14.5%, but its not really offensive and you can enjoy the beer without having to deal with it. Sweet and malty with a big bourbon finish, this was another treat from the Winter Michigan Beer Fest.

Sammy (11770) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 Mondiale 2007. Dark brown body with amber highlights. A great soapy white head. Very fresh tasting, vanilla and caramel. A very good bourbon barrel effort, and a great matchup of barleywine.

12oz bottle, vintage 2009, RBWG. Small beige head atop murky dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, some Bourbon. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, some Bourbon. Smooth medium-full body, low carbonation, wouldnt guess it had such a high ABV.

decaturstevo (6061) - 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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2010
2005 vintage bottle from MaltOMeal.
Pours a murky, slightly thin mahogany with raisin brown highlights. Aroma is bourbon oak soaked raisin with a touch of caramel-infused red wine. Flavor is a tangy, zesty citrus quickly offset by a raisiny caramel-oaked red wine with a melon/cherry hybrid fruit. Lots of stuff going on here; seems to be a different taste set with every sip. Thin on the tongue at first but becomes more chewy as it warms. Great beer.
