GlasgowTAD (1874) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2017
Bottle gifted by Benzo! Pours deep opaque burgundy-brown with virtual no head. Aroma is caramel laden. Heaps of caramel in the taste, balanced by a moderate bitterness with some molasses thrown in. Oak, raisins, dates, and a tinge of vanilla make up the rest of this beers character. Thick, oily body. beerplace (1958) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2017
375ml bottle from Super Deli & Grocery, Seattle. Vintage 2016. Pours a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is bourbon, sweet fruits. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, dark fruits, some bourbon barrel. Slightly hot. Very nice. jbruner (5122) - 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 öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. LiwkoLiwko (541) - 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.

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. creppyiceman (986) - POLAND - MAR 26, 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. There’s 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. Drago7 (430) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 25, 2017
