Straight from the cellar as I took this Covid lockdown as a time to drink down the cellar. Bottled 4/01/2010

Very little fizzy head mostly from the pour, no retention, I think I see oil on the top, decent legs, dark murky brown color with basically no light coming through

Nose brings some nice sweet malts, aged sweet malts with some winey oxidation, some port and brandy like oxidation and dark fruits, lots of caramel, molasses, toffee, etc, light bourbon and some vanilla oak as well, touch of chocolate covered raisin as well

Taste brings big sweet malts, not super sweet but perceived sweetness, big caramel, toffee, and molasses as well, with more of the aged soft malt and oxidation notes, hint of papery oxidation but more like brandy and winey notes, with more dark fruits, prune, fig, a little plum, and a bit more chocolate covered raisin as there's a touch of chocolate in there, light baking spices and a little vanilla barrel, as well as light bourbon, pretty much no alcohol, a little spicy hop bitterness, drier finish but a bit sticky, touch of perfumey alcohol, bit more bitterness, and some cranberry craisin like

Mouth is fuller bod, almost chewy like, thicker and a little smooth caramel, very low carb, touch of alcohol warmth

Overall a nice barleywine with some good aged characters, love the fruit and winey brandy oxidation, and lack of alcohol was nice, but wish the bourbon was a bit more present but faded with age as expected. lack of carb affected it a bit as well but the caramel velvety notes are nice

First of all, the dude who named this a “shelf turd” doesn’t have any business doing reviews, sounds like your goal from the go was to bash this, so why buy it?

Anyways, same batch as said dude, bottled 01/11/12 so definitely some time to settle down

Served at 55°, normal pour from 750ml bottle into a Bruery Terreux stemless snifter, body is muddy copper, tan head with decent retention, no lacing left behind

Aroma is mostly boozy bourbon but a tad bit of cardboard, definitely some sweet vanilla oak notes, but upon head agitation, some rich plum and grape flavors, this seems very reminiscent of a fine red wine

Taste is sweet vanilla oak, definitely a lot of dark stone fruit, boozy plums and pomegranates, even some caramel biscuit-like flavors on the finish

Mouthfeel is smooth with no alcohol burn from the abv, not the thickest BW you’ll ever have but definitely some gravity there with a sticky mouthfeel

Overall for picking this up at $4.99, I’m pleased, honestly just bought it for kicks since saw that dudes horrible review, apparently he’s never had a barrel aged barley wine..

Shelf turd, picked up August 10th 2018, bottled 05/06/14. Yes, this beer has been sitting on the shelf for 4 years. I passed by it for 4 years due to unitas other sub par offerings ive had in the past. Since it was marked down from $12.99 to $4.99 id figured id have mercy and try it. However, it had no mercy on my pallate. There is 0 bourbon barrel on this beer. In fact, i doubt this beer even touched a bourbon barrel. instead, there is a weird , floral, hoppy thing going on which doesnt match the beer's appearance. think a basic lagunitas hopped beer, and just not on par for the style at all. it is very off putting and is nothing like burbon county, firestone, or any other real barrel aged barleywine. id pass, even at 67% off.

Note: This is part of my Shelf Turd series reviews, dedicated to Lee's Liquor on East Sunset Road in Las Vegas. A legendary shelf turd beer shop which has absolutely no regard for craft beer. I got this beer for $4.99 marked down from $12.99. A shelf turd of 4 years.

Also, YungAnejo is a skinny beaner faggot who should stick to his own reviews. If you want to meet me for a fistfight in any Las Vegas back alley just name the time and place. You like dog shit beer and your pallate would be happy licking a dogs asshole 5 stars. Skinny fucking dick lick

Tastes like a watery butterscotch drink. Not much bourbon to speak of, fair bit of toffee and butterscotch, thin body, undercarbonated, without much to show for all of it.
