750 Ml. Cmon guys quit cagin and corkin your great beer. The last one exploded on me, and this one the cork broke off half way. You make great beer, not wine! Nice mahogany body with a quarter inch of creamy foam. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, caramel, hints of orange toffee. Flavor is more orange toffee with chocolate, some citrus, mint and just a hint of the bourbon barrel. Medium-heavy body is smooth, well-balanced, and very drinkable.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Bottle... Poured dark, amber with a thin, off white head. Nose had some bourbon and malt tones. A little sweetness here, could definitely tell that the base beer was the Anniversary Barleywine. Vanilla, whiskey notes, oak, tannins, dark fruits. Thinner body, herbal notes too.

Dorwart (2568) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Nice strong beige head of fine and dense bubbles. Lots of pine sap, roasted malts, some spicy bourbon and a bit of brown sugar. Color is a very dark brown with a bit of a reddish hue. Sweet and malty flavor with some caramel, roasted grains, a decent bit of piney hops and some dried fruit. Very rich and full flavored brew with just a hint of the bourbon in the flavor. Noticable alcohol presence and warming. Finishes rather bitter and a bit dry and leaves a malty residue in the mouth. A pretty good barleywine.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2011
750 poured into a snifter, dated June 2010 (didnt notice the date until after a few sips). Pours a rusty red with a very thin whitish head. Boozy aroma with tons of prunes, figs, toffee, and bourbon. Taste is quite warm, an underlying fruitiness accented by warm vanilla spice and oak. Dark fruit flavor, not much hoppiness but enough to balance it. Not really much bourbon flavor. Ive had this fresh on tap and it definitely had more bourbon character. Not quite as much heat as when fresh, but still noticeably boozy in taste, like a rich dessert wine. Mouthfeel was smooth, but more or less uncarbonated. Would have been perfect if it was on cask, but alas. Not bad, overall. Definitely preferred it fresh (and carbonated).

Bottle; Pour is murky dark golden amber; frothy beige head that retains well in this glass- light, spotty lacing is present here. The nose is oak, vanilla, dark fruits, and a certain earthiness. It goes downhill for me, honestly - the bourbon notes are quite muted , and the brew , while boozy, is a little thin down the center. Earthy oak, bourbon, vanilla, hop resins, a a bit of cocoa, I guess. Eh
