Wow! 14.1%. Rumor is a limited edition bottling is on the way. Pretty self explanatory. The Lakewood, New York based brewery took their barley wine and aged in bourbon. hopheadsbrew (143) - Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2013

Tap at hopcat gr, Aroma of sweet fruits and bourbon, taste is very sweet- bourbon, caramel, vanilla, and oak blend wonderfully with sweet fruits. Very balanced and very good. rollingwood (91) - Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2012
On tap at Cole’s. Orange/copper colored liquor with a malt-vanilla aroma. The small white head was surprisingly persistent. The mouth feel was full and warming, the 14% ABV well-disguised in the bourbon/vanilla/dried fruit flavor, sweet attack and complex finish. This is an absolutely wonderful Barleywine that I hope makes it into bottles. budznsudz (584) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours dark rust with a frothy white head. The nose is tobacco, bourbon, oak, vanilla, and sweet syrup. The taste is syrupy sweet goodness with bourbon, oak, vanilla, and the perfect dose of hops. There is a mild alcohol burn but the 14.1% is hidden remarkably well. Kudos to Southern Tier on this one.

On tap at Beermuda. Wonderful aroma vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Dark brown with a thick creamy head. Smooth taste of vanilla and bourbon with a bit of oak. Definately a warming effect from the alcohol. Overall a great barleywine. adrian910ss (2594) - Doylestown, PA, USA - MAY 16, 2012
On draft at capones. Pours a deep coppery color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of sweet warm bourbon vanilla and caramel toffee. Taste is much the same. PhillyCraft (7904) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2012
