2004 Vintage bottle, # 202/240, Sampled October 2005
It is with much anticipation that I open this baby up. I really could not believe the news that I would be able to purchase this beer at my local bottle shop here in Tucson, AZ (thanks again LittleGuy). It pours a deep amber color that when held up to the light shows a mostly brilliantly clear cherry red color. The head is a frothy, creamy, rocky mix of textures and is a light amber to tan color. As I pour this beer I get a big caramel maltiness coupled with a shot of Bourbon aromatics. The oak is strongly evident in the nose; at first comes a tannic woody note that moves to notes of vanillin and finishes off with a strong note of buttery oak. Underneath the wood character there is a hint of the former hop monster that this beer was: I get hints of floral pine, and remembrances of grapefruit long suppressed.

The beer has no apparent sweetness to it (at least what could be there is drowned out by the other flavors). The mouthfeel on this one is incredibly rich and smooth up front, creamy would be an apt description for this beer to be sure. The taste actually has a bit of sourness to it, really just makes this beer slightly tart up front. The tartness coupled with fruitiness, reminds me of tart plums and apples. All of these are just peripheral flavors though; this beer is absolutely dominated by the oak character. Throughout is a buttery oak note that is joined by notes of vanillin as well as a tannic woody astringency that reminds me black tea. The finish is still quite hoppy though with a solid bitterness that tries to peak through the oak, but ultimately succumbs to the buttery oak notes which linger long after the beer has left my mouth. Hints of this beers former glory surface from time to time; at times I get a faint trace of a sharp hop flavor that is a mix of citrus and herbs, but then it vanishes just as quickly as it was noticed. At other times I get wisps of malt character (like notes of sweet caramel and rich toffee), but they too get quickly trampled by the Bourbon Barrel.

This beer has mostly become a vehicle for the barrel flavors, what flavors that do peak through from the Old Numbskull play a supporting role to mitigate / round-out the oak flavors. I bet you a mixture of half fresh Numbskull and half this beer would be quite tasty, there would still be a big hop and malt presence to balance out the barrel contribution. As this beer stands it does not have enough balance nor complexity to be great. I have never been a fan of barrel aged beers for barrel aged beers sake; I really prefer a bold beer flavor with the supporting role being played by the barrel character. In this case the barrel character plays the lead role, and somewhere down there in the supporting cast there is an aged version of Old Numbskull.

Sampled at the Alesmith taproom. 2013 version.

Appearance: Pours a nice clear auburn color. Decent off white head which reduces to a pretty nice ring around the glass. Looks pretty nice.

Smell: Smells of caramel and strong hopping with a good level of barrel as well. Rye whiskey and wood. Lots going on here, overall it contributes to a bit of a muddled overall scent.

Appearance: Caramel malts and heavy hopping presence up front. Initial impression is that it tastes buttery, and I could not shake that throughout the duration of the beer. The barrel is fairly subtle. Oak tannins and rye whiskey stand out.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Under medium bodied with pretty high carbonation. Okay mouthfeel, probably a little thin for my tastes. Overall, I wasn't a huge fan of this BA version of Numbskull. As I mentioned before, I could not shake the impression of buttery flavor and that pretty much sealed this beer's fate for me. Definitely would not be opposed to trying this again at some point to give it another shot.

Bottle#124/225Amber and slightly orange like colored body which is cloudy and yielding only a slight scattered film on top. Lots of bourbon in the aroma almost overpowering with vanilla and oak. Malt is buried.Vanilla, bourbon in the flavor.. Body is full and velvety smooth. I think I’d prefer the original much better. The bourbon just overpowers everything else.

Bottle # 212. Very aromatic and the wood influence is unmistakable showing hints of oak, vanilla and bourbon along with the malt, which shows a bit of caramel and burnt toffee. The excessive aromatic hops in the regular Old Numbskull has tamed to an almost undetectable level. In the flavor, the hops have again tamed and the wood is clearly evident. Notes of bourbon, oak, caramel and toffee with a touch of vanilla. The body and texture is lacking. This should have been aged in a wine barrel. A bourbon barrel was not the proper vessel for this beer.

Bottle from the latest batch

A - Walnut / light brown with nice off white head that settled down to a layer of foam

S - Malty. Vanilla with light oak to it that gives it some barrel presence. Smells like Bigfoot but with more barrel presence.

T - Dates, vanilla,caramel, oak, and lots of booziness to it. This is also definitely a hoppy American Barleywine and the hops give the beer a bitter finish.

M - Medium body with light astringent finish from the alcohol and oak

O - I thought this was a decent BA barleywine but it was still too hoppy for my taste. The hops and bitterness throw it off a bit.

2007 Bottle thanks to Kevin!

A-pours a dark ruby red with a light tan head with plenty of bubbles on top.

S-musky dry oak up front, vanilla, bourbon, notes of sawdust, lots of burnt malts, sweet cherries and plums in the back with some dried raisin.

T-again the dry dusty oak is up front with a light touch of vanilla from the barrel. bourbon and some alcohol heat, it sweetens in the back but the malts are somewhat burnt, cherries, raisin and plum.

M-smooth syrupy body but thins out a little lacking some carbonation.

D-this seems to have some malt issues going on, tons of burnt sugars in the flavor and a little too much alcohol. the flavors don't work super well together, the barrel aging is rather pleasant with the flavors it has added but it did thin out a little while in those barrels.

From 2009 notes.

2006 bottle, big thanks to Dennis. Pours a hazy medium chestnut with a thin soapy head. Big, malty nose. Oranges, bourbon, and lighter chocolate tones. Flavor is nice...the malt is not overdone and is fully balanced by a smoky, somewhat bitter element. I love that smoky finish in Alesmith beers. Berries and some lighter fruits really shine in this. Bourbon is pretty well integrated and not overdone. A little too much bitter heat, almost peppery, coming through.

Update: sampled this in a spring, 2010 tasting alongside Perfect Storm. This came across as boozy and muddled. Downgrading the rating a bit.

Cheers,

Chad

1 pint 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle with black foil-ed over unbranded pry-off pressure cap purchased at the brewery in 2012 or 2013 and served cold into a goblet at low altitude in Austin, TX. Reviewed live as a bourbon barrel barleywine. Allowed to warm over the course of consumption.

Expectations are high given the brewery and bourbon barrel aging.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: 1 finger wide. Whie colour. Creamy and smooth. Retention is subpar - about 1 minute - though that's understandable given its age and 11% ABV. Leaves no lacing as it recedes.

BODY: Dark auburn-brown. Translucent. Not real vibrant. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

Appears aptly carbonated. Not unique or special looking, but apt for a barleywine. Looks good overall.

AROMA: Smells sweet. Vanilla-forward; the oak has receded. Marshmallow, toffee, English dark malts, crystal malts, treacle, cream, white oak barrel sugars, and caramel.

Aromatic intensity is high. It's on the sweeter side, but it's certainly appealing.

No yeast character, overt booze, or off-notes are detectable.

TASTE: Subtle refined bourbon barrel character replete with vanilla and slightly toasty oak. Ample barrel sugars. Marshmallow. Treacle. English dark malts, sweet amber malts. It's sweet, yeah, but the barrel just melts into the base seamlessly. Great overall balance. Good depth of flavour. Average flavour duration and intensity.

Some might find this too sweet, but I think it really works - especially with the soft marshmallow. I've had more complex and intricate beers in the style (e.g. King Henry), but when you're forced to compare a barleywine to beers in the ilk of King Henry you know they're doing it right. Tasty stuff from Alesmith.

The marshmallow steals the show. This isn't the most subtly executed brew, but boy is it balanced.

TEXTURE: Soft and creamy, with a shockingly sleek silky feel and a great overall presence on the palate. Comforting without being boozy or syrupy. Complements the taste really nicely. It definitely elevates the beer.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, or rough.

OVERALL: Highly drinkable for its 11% ABV. This is a definite improvement on the base beer, and the bourbon barrel - while not the most intricate in character - seamlessly melts into the beer. Really tasty stuff. I'm glad I cellared it as long as I did, and I'll plan on cellaring my other bottles a bit longer; she's only getting better. More proof Alesmith is one of San Diego's best breweries. A very good barleywine.

Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a light foamy head with minimal retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of sweet toffee and caramel notes with light cardboard notes and light bourbon notes. Taste is also dominated by sweet toffee notes with some caramel malt with some bourbon notes though not as much as expected. Light cardboard notes a re revealing that this bottle might be past its prime. Bourbon notes are not as dominant as I would have expected. Body is a little bit thin for style with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol notes. Fell a bit short of my expectation but good nonetheless. It would be interesting to try a fresher bottle next time.

Originally reviewed November 26, 2006. Bottle at O'Briens in San Diego. Rich bourbon cream aroma, resplendent with cherries, raisins, hints of milky chocolate and dark brown rum cooked with bananas. Ruby pour, with orange-yellow fringes. Hardly any head. Flavor is along the lines of the arom, with rich, creamy and almost oily sugar tannins, lots of tawny, pear, raisins and sweet cream vanilla, intended for oaky sugars. Quite light on the carbonation, which is a bummer. There’s a sweet tinge of euro-like hops along the backedge, but it makes the old hop presentation moan, as this is more subdued and to my liking. I enjoyed the light oxidization character of this beer, as truer to the plummy, raisin-like sweetness characters of the style, but without carbonation and some warmth noticeable from the barrel, I don’t find this a phenomenal improvement over the straight version.

Bottle brought by me, 2007 Vintage, #117/449. Poured into Darkness snifter.

A - Pours a dark brown/reddish color, cream ring, with random whisps on top.

S - Dark fruits, huge oak/barrel, ever so slight hoppy bitterness, caramel, burnt sugars. Perhaps a little more oak-forward then I prefer but otherwise, pretty good.

T - Dark fruit, caramel, oak/barrel. Smooth booze, nice caramel sweetness, and the oak isn't quite as strong as the nose (that's a good thing).

M - Light to medium (a bit too thin), good carbonation, and creamy sweet finish.

O - I think I actually prefer the regular 2007 over the Barrel-Aged version. Perhaps a bit too much oak for me in this one. I wonder how the other years stack up to 2007? I guess I'll have to try them and see.

Bottle shared by me at our pre-Dark Lord Day tasting. Thanks me! Reviewed from notes.

This one pours a murky copper color with a finger of head. The aroma is big caramel and hops with a strong vanilla backbone and a hefty amount of booziness.

The flavor is an oddly sour/fruity combination, but not in a bad way. Lots of caramel and toasty maltiness. Very boozy. The body is medium and the carbonation is appropriately low. Like most of the barrel aged Alesmith releases, I found this one to be solid, though very unspectacular.

I have to thank the same guy I always thank for beers like this. Thanks Jeffy. 2007 vintage.

A: Pours a clear, deep, dark caramel color with a thin light tan head that faded into a faint collar.
S: Sweet and fruity smelling with hint of leafy hops, tobacco, brown sugar and hint of bourbon.
T: Flavors of raisin, caramel, oak, tobacco, vanilla, bourbon, barrel wood spices, sweet fruit juice and a bit of cocoa. Oak is strong in the finish along with some brown sugar and toast.
M: Full body, slick moutfeel, tingly but low carbonation. Booze is barely noticeable at this point and oh so smooth.
O: A great barley wine and an improvement on the original. Thanks ipa247.

750ml Bottle from 2005 - Thanks to Phyl21ca for sharing this

Appearance - Hazy copper/brown colour with almost no head. Hard to make out the level of carbonation and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for only seconds.

Smell - Malts, dark fruits, butterscotch/toffee, hint of chocolate

Taste & Mouth - There is a low amount of carbonation and I can taste malts mixed with some toffee/butterscotch. There is also a bit of a dark fruit taste and a woodiness mixed with a touch of chocolate. The booze lingered a bit on the finish but it was still very smooth.

Overall - Perhaps a bit past it's prime, but still a fantastic beer. The smell was amazing and with a little more carbonation this beer would have been even better. Glad I had the chance to try this.

2005 vintage, 71 of 223

a: This was a hazy and almost shiny mahogany color. It poured with almost no head.

s: Wow, beautiful nose on this one! Muted bourbon and vanilla aromas compliment oaky musty fruits like raisins and figs plus some toffee. There might be a little soy sauce lurking around the edges.

t: Falls a bit short of the smell, but not by a whole lot. Toffee and raisin flavors take a bit of a back seat to woody bourbon and vanilla. The finish is smoky wood.

m: Barrel aged b-wines don't need much carbonation, but this one didn't have any. Overall though, the lack of carbonation didn't lessen my enjoyment too much.

d: Thanks to the absurdly generous rallison for the chance to try this one. I enjoyed this more than the score would indicate I think.

2006 bottle #45/208. Looks just like the regular version, orange with minimal head. It smells boozy, whiskey, etc. The taste immediately revealed the difference between this and the
regular Old Numbskull, booze. It was as if the barrel-aging was fighting the original character of the beer with vanilla and booze. The beautiful, bitter hoppiness I have tasted in numbskull was defeated by brute strength. This was a nice complex beer but I feel like the barrel-aging obscures some of the best aspects of an already terrific beer.

2006 vintage

A: Poured a murky brownish color with a light sediment presented, a light tannish cap

S: Still has a quantifiable amount of old spent oak spirals, Earthiness, light vanilla and booze

T: Still had some light residual sugar sweetness, with old wood, light vanilla and pinch of raisin remains

M: Medium to big body at this age with lower carbonation, some fading flavors, light booze and stickiness

O: Good but it is peaking IMO or has recently peaked

I forgot to write it down, but I believe it was Paul who shared this 2007 bottle. Thanks!

A: The pour is sort of a murky dark amber/copper color with a small khaki head.

S: Moderate amounts of bourbon hit the nose followed by some vanilla and brown sugar. Plenty of caramel and toffee sweetness to go with it. No real hop character left at this point.

T: Surprisingly restrained bourbon from an Alesmith barrel aged beer. Vanilla, brown sugar, toffee, and bread, and yes, some bourbon too. Perhaps a hint of chocolate, and definitely a bit oxidized.

M: Medium to full in body with a moderate carbonation.

O: Not as overwhelming as some of the other Alesmith barrel aged releases, but quite good, and significantly better than the previous times I've had it.

Number 166/449

A - Brown/ prune juice color, with red highlights. Small head, leaves completely. Low lacing.

S - People talk bourbon, but my first impression is brandy or sherry, wood, nice malt base. Hops are hard to discern.

T - Big boozy shot of brandy laced beer. Bitter is apparent at end.

M - Medium body, creamy texture, good carb, not incredibly balanced, but for this style, pretty good.

D - Nope. Too big, too thick, too strong.

Again, one last big thanks to Kevin R for breaking out the barrel aged AleSmith goodies. This was the last of the bunch. BA Numbskull pours a seedy copper-ish and overtly muddled brown color. Label it mostly opaque and call it a day. It takes just moments for the khaki head to settle to a dollop of foam in the middle and a crust that outlines the top of the brew.

Very sticky and very deep is the aroma; a brick road paved with elements of prune, raisin, caramel, and toffee, upon which a boisterous crew of bourbon-lathered barrel staves comes tap dancing heavily across. Acetone notes here and there, thundering in and out, covered up by some sweeter grape and brown sugar notes in the finish.

I can already tell that this sucker is going to be a bourbon punch in the throat... or at least it smells that way. It should be noted that the base beer is quite pungently sticky and delicate in and of itself - without its superior pungency, barrel-aging of this magnitude would likely create an undrinkable beer. Sweetness and heat tend to balance, so I sure hope it does, here.

I have a bowl in front of me filled with grapes and prunes, lacquered in a 50/50 mixture of brown sugar and bourbon, and I'm shoveling them in my face with dry, spicy oak spoon each time I take a sip of this beer. It's quite hot. It's quite sweet. But definitely more hot than sweet, like the type of girl you meet at a bar and are afraid to date because she's got no morals or ethics, but she's a freak that can bring you to your knees.

BA Numbskull finishes with more (heavy) bourbon, boozy oak, slightly burnt coffee, bourbon, sweet prunes, bourbon, and brown sugar. Did I mention it was bourbon-y? Order up a cocktail with 2 parts bourbon, 2 parts brown sugar, 1 part prune juice, add 2 dashes of cocoa powder, garnish with a date and a sprinkle with oak chips. Viscous, heavy, thick, and carbonated well enough for the style it represents; creamy, heavy mouth feel.

This beer was pretty good, no doubt, but I don't exactly think it lives up to the acclaim it has been given. Perhaps I should have let the bottle mellow out a bit more? As is, it's a bit too "in your face" with the bourbon and heat to thoroughly enjoy more than a four ounce sample. It's delicious in extremely small doses; the flavors are excellent and work well together, but it becomes clamoring and cumbersome in larger ones due to its heat. I'd like to have this again with more age and see how it fares.

A: Dark brown with lots of carbonation. Nice looking beer

S: Holy bourbon! I don't know how previous reviewers could call this even remotely subtle. Huge aromas of oak and vanilla. There's some caramel lurking in there, but this is all about the bourbon.

T/M: Same as the smell. On the positive end, this is really smooth and well balanced, which can be a problem with some beers with bourbon aging. Very delicious. My only knock is that I thought it was too one-dimensional. All I got was the bourbon flavors, which I thought dominated over pretty much everything else. That's not to say it wasn't quite tasty.

D: Definitely mellowed out the hops from the original version. This one goes down nicely despite its intensity.

750ml. I think this is a 2013 bottle.

A: Pours a monstrously thick mahogany with reddish hues and a small off-white head.

S: Aroma brings thick raisins, citrus pith, caramel, figs. Smells of sweet overripe dark fruit.

T: Taste brings more fig, mild tannic bourbon, orange peel and a bit of lingering leafy hoppiness, dense cooked sugar, molasses, maple.

M: Thick-bodied, very viscous, light carbonation.

O: This is a very good BA barleywine that retains some hoppiness and isn't very barrel-forward. Certainly a bruiser but more restrained than I was expecting.

Big thanks to stowehop for breaking out this rarity. Bottle #154/449 of the 2007 vintage.

A - Pours with a dime of off-white foam that settles to a thick ring and some light haze. Dark ruby-brown color that is only somewhat translucent. Fairly attractive for the style.

S - Sweet dark fruits, and lots of wood and oak. There's also some caramel, burnt sugars, and notes of chocolate covered raisins. As it warms a little more booze comes out - maybe a touch more than I like.

T - Quite tannic, with tons of burnt sugar, caramel, and dark fruits. The bourbon flavor isn't overt, but instead adds earthiness that complements the woody flavors. Finish is surprisingly clean. This is definitely English in character, with minimal hop presence.

M - Surprisingly active carbonation for the style and the 11%+ ABV. Somewhat gritty and tannic, but never gets astringent. There's some obvious heat as well.

D - Definitely a sipper. I had a tough time working through 6-8oz (although it was fairly late in the session). Would love to try again at some point on a fresh palate.

I liked this more than the BA Wee Heavy, but less than BA Decadence and BA Speedway.

Bottle #131

This beer pours a golden brown color with a very tiny light tan head. The head fades very fast, leaving a slight lacing.

This beer smells of Borubon. I can smell a slight oakyness to is as well. It has a hint of vanilla also. It has a dark fruity aroma also. Some figs and raisins. It has a strong very sweet caramel aroma. A hint of pine is also present.

This beer tastes much like it smells. Bourbon is the dominate flavor. I taste a strong sweet caramel malty flavor as well. Some fig flavor is present. A slightly piney hop flavor is also detectable. A very slight vanilla flavor is also present.

This beer is very aggressive. It leaves a Bourbon like aftertaste. Thie beer has almost no carbonation at all.

This beer would be a bad session beer for a number of reasons. First, it is very aggressive, and would be hard to drink all night. Second, the alcohol content is too high to enjoy for many hours. Third, it costs $20 a bottle, and it would be hard to afford to drink it all night. Fourth, they only bottled 227 of these.

Overall: I liked this beer, as I knew I would. I think it was worth the $20. I hope AleSmith puts it out again.
