Tasted at brewery for RBSG. This was a really amazing beer. Nice copper red with creamy tan head. Bourbon, spice, and caramel aroma. Smooth buttery palate. Bourbon, vanilla, caramel, spice, toffee, and oak taste. julieimagery (182) - Coconut creek, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Amazingly good barley wine. Perfect balance of hops and malt, but of course more malt than pine/citrus. Loved it, had at Mom’s May 14th. :/ Rojum55 (12) - California, USA - JUN 29, 2013
