Draught 15 cl as part of a 6 beer flight at the brewpub on January 20, 2014.swright752 (20) - - NOV 16, 2013
Clear brown color, very small head. Sweet, very boozy, alcohol, sweet, did I say alcohol and sweet, taste. Sweet, alcohol aftertaste. Warming. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness. Sweet, alcohol scent.
Warming up goes a bit more vanilla and oak.
Surprisingly balanced, but just a bit over the top and too much still.
Heavy beer!! To say the least... But amazing nose with bourbon and caramel fruits. Color of watered down toilet water with a watery palate. Overall an amazing beer that pairs wonderfully with their apple cheesecake. Apache (63) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Had this at halfway there beer festival. Poured golden with little head or carbonation. Tasted like a mild bourbon. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2013
On cask at Halfway There. Pours a murky orange-brown with a white head. Nose is booze, fruit, yeast, oak, sweet malt, and whiskey. Flavor is similar with lots of malt, fruit, yeast, booze, oak, and whiskey. Very boozy with lingering wood, whiskey, and booze in the finish.

Fizzy? Very malty, sweet, oaky, warm, caramel. Surprisingly thin and smooth. Tastes more like a 10%, but judging by howy frrond puked layer, I can safely say this is in the 22% range

Pretty decent barley wine, as with most of their beers it’s pretty carbonated. The wood is totally present in the finish. Nice and sweet. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2011
On a sample (thank God) tray at brewer. Muddy brown pour almost no head. Boozy tart scent. Taste is tart and sweet with a wet wood finish. Ugh BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2011
On tap at the grill. Murky copper pour. Aroma of toasted sugars. Flavor was vanilla bean and caramel with a very very slight alcohol burn on the back. Otherwise, the alcohol is VERY cleverly disguised and this was WAY too easy to drink IF you like them sweet, as I do. It was truly like drinking warm caramel and sugar. Very easy to sip and if I lived closer, this would be my go to after dinner drink. Very suprised at how much I liked several of their beers. YUM! drowland (8760) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2011
5/16/11. On tap at the brewery. Hazy amber pour with a small ring of khaki head. Giant sweet aroma of dark fruits, grapes, port wine, and alcohol. Unique sweet flavor of prunes, caramel, and brown sugar laced big with oak. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2011
Pours totally opaque muddy amber with thin off white head. The aroma has inviting and drool inducing levels of caramel candy followed by plums, raisins, some spicy maple, black strap molasses and a bit of expected heat at the end of the draw. The taste is pretty lively and comes across as a mix of Baladin Xyauyù, champagne and white oak aged whiskey. It offers up firm levels of ripe red apple drizzled with caramel, plums, raisins and simmered and reduced strawberries. It then flows into ample amounts of fresh oak that really isn’t the typically robust spicy oak but rather it is smoother with subtle spicy oak notes. Maybe this huge beer has absorbed some of the wood spiciness. Into the finish spicy yeast and spicy oak pick up in their intensity to the point that they shoulder in amongst the thicket of sweet fruity esteriness. From time to time it also picks up an extra boost of whiskey to almost a sweet rum like sense. Tasty brew great sipper.
