Bottle courtesy of dougofthefuture. Served in a snifter. Pours a medium caramel color with a short receding head. Thin collar. Nose has some caramel malt and bread along with some bourbon. Light toast. Flavor is a bit sweet with toffee, caramel, and bready malt. Bourbon and oak through the background, though nothing too heavy. Fairly smooth, but not all that interesting, especially when compared against some of Town Hall’s other Barrel-Aged offerings.

750ml shared by Todd (immobilisme) at Zwanze 2012. Thanks!

A: Pours a dark amber with a good light tan head.

S: Thick toffee and vanilla in the nose, with a hint of maple and oak. The barrel influence is smooth and not quite as in-your-face as other highly regarded BA barleywines.

T: Caramel, toasted coconut, bourbon and oak, and a palpable hop bitterness on the end.

M. Thick, light carbonation.

O: Not the most assertive BA barleywine, but certainly tasty.

The beer is brown with a small head of broken bubbles. The aroma is boozy with oak, vanilla, malty sweetness. The flavor is ok. Lots of sweetness and booze. Maybe some vanilla and coconut, as well as caramel and brown sugar notes. Medium bodied with a warming finish. Complex but not balanced as well as it might have been. Overall, this was still a tasty beer, but has the potential to be even better.

Meh, served in the new Town hall glass. Beer is brown and hazy with a tan head of small bubbles, low retention, no lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is malty, sweet, a little booze.

Beer is sweet and too sweet. It is mildly oak, boozy but overall not a very enjoyable beer. A little bit was enough, not a repeat for me.

Poured into a tulip glass form a 750ml bottle.

Pours a gorgeous dark dark amber color with some caramel notes and some nice slight golden honey edges. There is a gorgeous 1 inch light cream head that is dense and extremely sticky. There are some more medium sized soapy bubbles sprinkled around but it is very creamy.

Aroma starts off with some delicious sweetness. Tropical fruit sweetness as well as some awesome caramel and molasses notes. there is some slight mango, papaya and sugary pineapple that also come through. Very nice. Awesome Bourbon notes and some nice vanilla and barrel notes. The sweetness is refreshing and fruity and not cloying at all.

Taste is smooth and bourbon infused. Nice molasses sweetness and caramel sweetness mix in with some great Bourbon heat and slight citrusy hop note that is also perceived. The Bourbon notes are intense but not harsh. There is some great toffee and vanilla notes that smooth things out and as the brew finishes the heat kicks back up. After it warms the heat kicks up a bit. Still a very good Barleywine. Mouthfeel is smooth and surprisingly light but a bit sticky.

Overall this AB is really good. Very nice Bourbon notes and some nice heat. There are some good toffee and molasses notes with vanilla that mix in with the heat. There are some nice oaky notes as well. Very good stuff.
