4.08/5  rDev +3.6%

Bottle shared at Beer Revolution (Guilherme's choice), on to the beer:

More of a ruby brown color with a reddish accent. There is a long lasting head on top and some thick layers of foam sticking to the glass. Going alongs the lines of the American barleywine, this one features notes of pineapple, toasted sugar, soft citrus, subtle oak, and a full malty body. The alcohol level, at over 11%, is hidden with skill, making this beer a dangerous one to drink on its own. Better to do this one with a few good friends than to do on its own.

In a snifter this beer was a dark brown color with a small tan head. There was a smidgeon of lace.

Aroma was sweet caramel and vanilla.

Taste followed aroma, caramel and vanilla. But there was also some dark fruit that showed up in the taste. And, lo and behold, hops.

In fact, this was a fairly hoppy beer. They didn't dominate the taste, but complimented it very well.

3.95/5  rDev +0.3%

Bottled on: 08/07/12

A: Pours a ruby red/mahogany color with a fingers worth of tan head

S: A good bit of caramel, sweet malts, vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Light notes of dark fruit, dark chocolate, and hops as well. Nice and complex

T: Again, very complex. Starts off fairly sweet, with caramel, and vanilla, then goes into the dark fruits, oak, and bourbon. Alcohol warming all the way through, but isn't too much of a factor taste-wise, except for in the finish. Some hops come in at the end to add some bitterness. Finishes bitter, dry, and slightly boozy

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry and smooth

O: A solid BBA barleywine with huge complexity. Definitely a sipper because of this fact, plus the 11.1%. At under $12 for a 750 mL bottle (plus the fact that this is year-round), this is one worth picking up. I'm sure this would age wonderfully as well

4.43/5  rDev +12.4%

A - dark amber with a soft, brown, foamy head that has decent retention

S - caramel, candy sugar, faint alcohol, faint bourbon

T - caramel, bread, burnt sugar, alcohol, faint bitter hops, dark fruit, bourbon, wood

M - warm, full bodied, smooth

This is fantastic. It has complex flavor and surprisingly dangerous drinkability. There's great balance. The bourbon is complimentary and adds complexity. This is all around solid. I'll definitely be having this again.

3.8/5  rDev -3.6%

Poured from 750ml corked and caged into snifter.

A. Pours a pretty well caronated 3 finger off white colored head. Thick lacing. Great retention. Color is so dark brown it is almost black.

S. Bourbon, oak, raisins, brown sugar, hops, vanilla, roasted malt. Has an earthy aroma, and quite a bit of hop punch surprisingly enough. Has a bit of heat coming through that is mixed with some resiny hop aroma.

T. Brown sugar, raisins, caramel, a bit of oaky vanilla. Not much hop punch, unlike the smell.
Taste seems a bit unrefined. Has a bit of alcohol heat on the back of the tongue.

M. Medium/full bodied. Full carbonation. Finishes sweet.

O. Ok beer. Seems like this beer is not ready at this point in time. Not a lot of barrel aged flavor. Barleywine seems to pack a bit of a hop punch that mixes with some of the other flavors and aromas going on.

Beer #42 in my great Utah Brew Hunt.

This barleywine is surprisingly smooth, even though there is a burning alcohol tone to it at the same time. It seems like a very good interpretation of the style. Very well rounded, smooth, good flavor profile. If only I could live in a place for more than a year, I would love to lay some of these down.

The only detractor, if I am going to pick one out, is that it is a bit boozy and hot.
