Hazy brown. This is thick enough that the head builds slowly. Caramel, nuts, a touch of dark dried fruit. Not over the top, but good. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2012

Pours brown with little head. Aroma is of sweet malt and some bread. Taste is pretty sweet with a lot if malt, a little hops, and a hint of bourbon. Palate is decent, but pretty sweet. For 1/3 bourbon barrel aged, I don’t get much bourbon. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013

Delicious barley wine. Aroma was nice. Toffee, caramel and roasted malt. Pour was a milk chocolate brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was big and malty. Sweet brown sugar, caramel and milk with a sticky toffee finish. No hops to speak of. As it warmed, the bourbon came out. Vanilla and bourbon were just a hint, but present. Light carbonation.

Bottle in fridge, to my glass. Pours a cloudy amber color, not much head. aroma is all malt bomb, in your face sweetness. My teeth hurt a bit. Taste is syrupy, sweet, bitter a bit. Finish is almost drying, some fruity aftertaste. taste better than it smells. But now I read the description, bourbon barrels? could have fooled me, dont get that much. But still this beer aint to bad.
