Ordered on draft 10/05/11 at FFF.

A - Copper/Amber, hazy, no head to speak of.

S - Bourbon and caramel, I expected a little more hop being a barleywine, but not being a huge hophead as it is, I took this as no offense.

T - Bourbon and oak. Sweet. No bitterness whatsoever. I did not get much of a charred oak, but would describe it as more sawdusty than anything.

M - Very thick, expecting a sipping beer, I was not disappointed.

O - Enjoyable, I would recommend you try this, but it is by no means a 'destination beer'. The ABV advertised seems a little high, I would guess this did not attenuate as planned which would explain the sweetness and muted effect of the alcohol.

A slightly non transparent brown looking beer with small head. Aromas of rich sweet malt and insanely rich bourbon. Smells of expensive bourbon but all around balanced. Loved the mouthfeel. Alcohol hidden so well. Can't believe this is 12%. Hands down one of the greatest barleywines I've ever had. By the way, hardly any hop aromas or flavors, which works so well with barleywines.

A - Dark brown beer that turns orange on the edges. Some random spots on the sides of the glass (or plastic cup in this case).

S - Lots of barrel and bourbon, and it smells good. Vanilla, wood, bourbon, good stuff. Bit of caramel and slightly toasted malts in there as well.

T - Drinks really smooth, pretty mellow. Lots of bourbon and barrel characteristics, little bit of fruityness in there, more of a barleywine characteristic than picked up on the nose.

M - Medium bodied, smooth, lower carbonation. Alcohol is very well-hiden.

O - Pretty good beer, surprised as I had heard that it wasn't good at all. Would welcome the chance to drink this one again.

Ontap at FFF.

A murky brownish color with some orange hues on the edges. Small dingy white head vanished pretty quickly but left a tight collar of microbubbles around the rim. Legs like Tina Turner, nice and thick. Some decent lacing too.

Smells like bourbon... The base beer is almost entirely lost on the nose, but some faint hints of caramel malts sneak their way in. Lots of oaky character with a charred oak and toasted coconut bite. The flavor adds a hint of toffee, lots of caramel sweetness, toasted coconut, and nice bourbon. Lots going on here, and almost all of it is fantastic.

The body is a little syrupy-- low carbonation, and just shy of full. Little oily.

Overall-- this is very nice. Very very nice.

Huge thanks to duff27 for surprising the shit out of me by showing up at a tasting with this bottle to share! Thanks duff!

poured into snifter.

bottle 182/261.

Appearance: muttled light brown bodied beer with 1 finger of white head. Drops quickly to ring around the glass.

Smell: Really malty with spicy bourbon. Cinnamon apples and fruity notes. Smells really boozey.

Taste: Big malts, fruits and spicy notes. Lots of caramel and bourbon. A nice oaky note in the middle of this beer. An amazing big vanilla note in the aftertaste! Not at all boozey like the nose suggests. Wow!

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation. Super smooth BA Barelywine! A nice warming booze that has no harsh alcohol burn to it.

Overall: Fantastic BA barleywine! 3F did a fantastic job with this beer. I love my BA english barleywines and this beer is both delicous and noteworthy. What a treat! Thanks again duff!!!

4.15/5  rDev -2.6%

Sampled on 3-16-12

Appearance: a very dark brown color with a little red around the edges. The head and lading is a tan ring around the glass, that sticks well to the sides.

Smell: all bourbon, and that's about it. There's a little sweet malt beneath, adding a fruity quality.

Taste: just like the smell, all bourbon and alcohol. The malt comes in and evens the whiskey out a bit. A nice fruitiness comes out at the end, helping the balance.

Mouthfeel: very thick and viscous, accenting the bourbon characteristics.

Overall: a huge and epic beer, well suited for a special release.
