Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is wood, roasted malt, cocoa. Medium body, roasted malt, chocolate, wood, bitter dry finish, very good.

Bastante Bourbon, nozes, amadeirada, álcool aparente e convidativo. Corpo médio um pouco abaixo do esperado. Médio dulçor e amargor. Álcool aparece mas não atrapalha. Nozes evidente do inicio ao fim, coco e vanilla com o tempo de copo.

Boozy toffee aroma. Dark black appearance with a decent head. Somewhat thin body but fantastic bourbon flavored toffee and dark fruit. Very good beer. Not a huge barleywine guy but this was great.

Sampler at 8ball brewing. Dark colored beer, black. Chewy malts, not astringent, faint autolysis but good. A lightly big barleywine. Aroma is earthy, alcohol, dusty lightly brownie malts. Best beer I tried at 8ball, should have went to Madtree instead.

500 ml bottle. Pours very dark and oil slick like. Big notes of bourbon and a lot of chocoalte. Very smooth. Very good.

16.9 ounce bottle, no date that I found on it but I’m pretty sure it’s a 2016 release. Served in a MadTree snifter, the beer pours a very dark brown/black color with about an inch tan head that stuck around for a little while. It looks like it could easily pass for being a stout if I didn’t know any better. There’s also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma a lot, the brew smells like bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, and toffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like bourbon, vanilla, molasses, dark fruit, chocolate, oak, toffee and nuts. Definitely a sweeter tasting barleywine. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s a bit coating and creamy with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good bourbon barrel aged barleywine, I’ll have to pick up another bottle or 2 of this one. $14.99 a bottle.

16.9oz bottle - nose is what the last few drinks at Darklord smell like. Bourbon and molasses. A sipper.

Enjoyed August 15, 2015 in a tulip at Crest Parsons. Look - Dark body, almost black. Less than a finger of light tan head. Good lacing. Fine to medium bubbles. Smell - Whiskey. Cherry. Dark fruit. Vanilla. Taste - Same from nose. Vanilla finish. Strong bourbon. Feel - Heavy. Carbonation stronger than style would suggest. Decent alcohol burn. Overall - Black barleywine. MadTree. Get it.
