Received from @Josholson666 in NBS BIF #4
Undated bottle at 42 degrees into a hand washed and dried JK snifter
Aroma – bourbon and dates (?)
Head – small (Maximum < two cm, aggressive pour), light brown, fizzy/frothy, gone in sixty seconds, leaves neither ring nor layer of bubbles
Lacing - none
Body – dark brown, cloudy, slight effervescence
Flavor – sweet but NOT cloying, dark fruit, some vinous hints, some caramel, a hint of diacetyl; not picking up any hops; alcohol comes in for a noticeable after burn.
Palate – medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

Wow! What an excellent BBA English barley wine! I could drink several but I probably shouldn’t – something about gravity being a bitch. This is one of the best barley wines I’ve ever had – not that I’m a connoisseur of the style or anything, but I know what I like! Massive thanks and good karma to @Josholson666!

Appearance 4, Aroma 4.5, Flavor 4.75, Palate 4.5, Overall 4.75

Finally getting around to trying this one, and man was I in for a treat! Waited til it warmed a little to get the true bourbon barrel character, and barrel-aged it was. Lots of dessert-like sweetness in the malt, with burnt sugar, toasted coconut, caramel, and the definite bourbon and oak that was dominant throughout. Tons of bourbon barrel in this one. An amazing beer, just wish the price tag hadn't been so steep. So glad I tried it though! Another great beer by Jackie O's.

Got this in a trade with @stinger80OH - thanks!
A - Pours a dark brown with no head at all.
S - Aroma is sweet, molasses and boozy.
T - Tastes of toffee, vanilla, raisins and a little booze.
M - Medium mouth feel, very low carbonation.
O - Barleywine? Not sure. Delicious? Absolutely. A real winter warmer, makes me wish it was cold outside. I sure wish this was distributed in Illinois.
