Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Copper, thin ring of foam. Smells like caramel (a lot) oak, and toffee. Taste is caramel and toffee, oak, and some hints of bourbon. Maybe some vanilla, too. Nicely thick and viscous. mcrae19 (59) - - MAR 7, 2013
22 oz. bottled 02/12. Pours a reddish brown. Caramel, alcohol, and malt aromas. Sweet with flavor of raisin and vanilla. Syrupy and very smooth, all the way to the finish. Despite the name, very little burn. Then again, this bottle was cellared a year before I drank it, so perhaps putting Back Burner on the back burner for a year tamed the burn? An excellent beer. Lowenbrau (4287) - Asturias, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2013
65cl bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Caramel and spicy aromas, along with some wood ones. Pours amber, a bit hazy, with correct white head, some persistent, poor lacing. Medium bodied, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is malty, caramel, a bit spicy. Sweet and warm aftertaste.

650 ml bottle.olio (10286) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Pours a ruby amber colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of sweet berries, caramel, oak and grapefruit. Flavour of strong sweet caramel, berries, oak, chocolate and some bread. Medium bodied, thick mouthfeel and a warming, malty and slightly dry finish. More of an American strong ale.
65 cl bottle.
laiti (8481) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Pours clear ruby red color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, caramel malts, toffee, mild nuts, some oak and vanilla. Flavor of toffee, caramel, sweet malts, sweet ripe fruits, some vanilla and mild hops. More like an american strong ale type, well balanced. Nice.
65 cl bottle @ olio, no BBE infotiong (7278) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Aroma is sweet with ripe fruits, oaky notes, caramel and some vanilla – also some gluey notes at the end of the glass. Flavour is sweet with hops, fruits, caramel, vanilla and woody notes. Feels like an American strong ale with some oak added. Feels a bit flat – perhaps this could be better more fresh. Then again, what is a ’fresh’ oak aged beer?
650ml bottleTmoney99 (14492) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Pours dark orange with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramely malts, syrup, hints of oak and wood. Taste is sweetish malty, caramely, hints of syrup and hops. Finish is warming, syrupy and sweetish with some malts, hints of vanilla. Okay, quite sweet and malty barley wine.
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark tart fruit, smoke and vanilla wod aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex smoke wood vanilla flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish that was of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

What the heck? I thought I’d had this one a few times. Been a while, but still. Guess I only had the regular BB. 22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99- thanks again, Tom! Pours a clear, reddish-copper color with a small off-white head made up of big bubbles. Sweet nose- toffee, vanilla, dried fruits, toasted sugar. Flavor was the same, with a little bit of citrus hop bitterness. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, malty mouthfeel and moderate soft carbonation. Decent barley wine but didn’t strike me as great in the lineup I had tonight. dchmela (3064) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2013
On tap at WOB. Deep brown pour with a thin white head. Oak, vanilla and toffee notes in the aroma. Big body, with notes of toffee and vanilla, yet very drinkable. Very good.
