Nice bourbon barrel smell, but otherwise just a normal barley wine with good carbonation. I would recommend this except for the price. Over $22 for a 750 is too much for this beer.

This was an exceptional beer! I work at a taphouse and we got these in stock. Bought one. Opened on Christmas Eve, Dec 24th 2015. Pours a deep luscious whiskey color, with a slight quickly evaporating head. Smells of bourbon and malt, the bourbon barrel aging extremely obvious. Tastes of sweet malt, bourbon, candy, and winter. Thick, heavy, warming. In all honesty this was consumed after already having several other delicious beers. Apologies if the review wasnt highly technical and beersnobbish. It was great. Awesome to share for the holidays and sure made a splash with those that tried it.

1 liter flip-top wax-tipped bottle scored from Belmont Station.

An absolutely superb barleywine and perfectly executed bourbon'ed beer. Well done Laurelwood!

Great body, color, smell, flavor and oh-so-smooth. Paired well with chicken soup and solid as a dessert as well. Merry Christmas to me!
