popery (2075) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 18, 2016
500 ml bottle. The beer is a darkish mahogany brown color. Fairly clear. Small tan head, dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma has a deep toasty caramel flavor. Light nuttiness. Brown sugar, toffee, molasses. Light cocoa, a little cola. Very nice barrel flavors - vanilla, spice, light oak, some light fruitiness. Rich flavors in the taste. Booze is milder than expected. Its smooth and sweet, though could have a touch more darker malt depth. Light raisins, a mild mineral note. A little more oak in the finish. Mouthfeel is nice enough and the beer coats the mouth well, but its not as big and chewy as the best barleywines out there. This is firmly very good territory, and I think a better batch could verge on great.

hopwine (670) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2016
2016 Huge barrel influence, molasses, toffee, cocoa. Not as much heat as you might expect on such a huge beer, especially given how little time this spent in a bottle. Huge body, oily mouthfeel.

bhensonb (14492) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle with CB for Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA, but memory says its from Marcus. Memory! Meh! Pours very dark copper with a beige head.Aroma of caramel and sweet toffee. Near full bodied at least. Flavor is bourbon/treacle/toffee/brown sugar. Which does not do justice to the flavor. It is very strongly flavored. Not dry of course, and only moderately bitter, but it is really flavorful and tasty.
