Launch into the exquisite flavors of bourbon with splashes of vanilla. Watch for currents of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Generous amounts of hops and malts make for a smooth journey from start to finish. Decadent desserts and aged cheeses make superb companions.

My first reaction when I tried this beer, in a bourbon barrel version, was simply "Wow." It had great taste and great subtlety (for a barleywine ale) and the bonus of the bourbon barrel. Should all my beers be so powerful and profound.

beer_queue (140) - California, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Pours thick, dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of candied apples, toffee, cherries, tobacco, bourbon, & orange zest. Taste is incredibly complex with all the aromas coming thru in layers. Starts off with dark, dried fruits. Middle shows off the tobacco, maple syrup, & cloves from bourbon barrels as well as roasted malts. Ends with a floral & juicy citrus hop combo. A lot of sweet, tropical fruits in finish. Medium body with a light carbonation. Tiny bit of booze heat at the end. This is an outstanding BBA barleywine...

fiery_1 (927) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
750ml bottle @ home. Bottled 2013.09.25. Pours a rich and cloudy brown colour with a reasonable tan head that diminishes to a thin covering. Nose is of molasses, malts, vanilla and some oak. Flavour is licorice, molasses, toffee, and oak. Fairly boozy and hot even for the age. Mild bitter finish that lingers a touch on the palate.
