jbruner (4627) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2017
2015 vintage. Pours a deep brownish black with thin ring of bubbly tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma and taste of strong bourbon notes, vanilla and oak, over hints of dark fruit and a very mild roastiness. Booze is pretty high, but solid beer nonetheless.

The aroma of bourbon and fruitiness. Just a taste of bourbon. Okay bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Not so good beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

LiwkoLiwko (323) - POLAND - MAR 31, 2017
Mistrzowskie piwo. Aromat jest wręcz obłędny. Uderza wanilia, marcepan i migdały. na drugim planie mleczna czekolada i wiśnia. Piana niezbyt okazała. Kolor ciemnobrązowy / czarny. Niezwykle treściwe i gładkie. Przyjemna konsystencja. W smaku odrobina czekolady, likieru, troszkę karmelu i kawy. Subtelne nuty burbonowe. Rozgrzewa w przełyku. pijalne.

Gerbeer (3586) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
12.7 oz bottle. 2016 vintage. Pours black with light head. Aromas of light bourbon, dark brown sugar/caramel, oak, and sweet roasted malts. Smooth flavors of sweet bourbon, light oaky whiskey, dry dark caramel, and sweet sticky roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. A little hot, but overall nicely balanced for a young barleywine.

Sarlacc83 (2250) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from Belmont Station. A: Dark mahogany near to black. Ring of cappuccino head. Legs. N: Thick caramel, some toffee, and plenty of bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Light coffee with some more roast. Theres some cherry underneath here, as well as some raisin and fig. T: Sweet with just a touch of bitterness. Plenty of oaky tannins. M: Medium-heavy body, no alcohol, subtle, but present carbonation. O: Damn this is nice. Really well-balanced. I remember when this was a big deal. After the fight over carbonation, this lost of a lot of prestige. Entirely undeserved. Delicious.

W zapachu subtelny kokos i wanilia + trochę alkoholu. W smaku kokos z wanilią zdecydowanie dominują, niemniej alkohol jest wyczuwalny.
