Thanks Walt for sharing! Taster showing dark brown with no head. The nose shows intense notes of molasses, dark chocolate, espresso, and hints of dark forest fruit. The palate is lightly carbonated and full bodied. Highly alcoholic with the same flavors from the nose on the palate followed by a finish of raisins, dried figs, and caramel. Deep, succulent, decadent and delicious

Bottle @ OBD share. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a small brown head. Notes of dark fruit, chocolate, toffee, burned wood, very oaky finish.

Blend 2 . Sampled in between Ratebeer and Brewver, so not much specific notes. Kindly shared by Duron. Specifically dark for the style, and shows much of the used barrels. Nice ! but a bit overhyped in my opinion

English style barleywine aged on wine and bourbon barrels, from a bottle at B.U.M.B.A. in Antwerp, thanks Jan for sharing. Virtually no head, translucent and clear deep mahogany-hued bronze robe, like a glass of old sherry. Intense, stunningly beautiful, mature and complex bouquet of old 'maderised' sweet sherry, hazelnut oil, walnut, bourbon, wet vanilla-ish oak, candied figs, cognac and old red wine, honey liqueur, butterscotch, plum brandy, home made caramel, toffee apple, subtle hint of fried bacon somewhere. Intense flavour of fig, Sultana raisins, candied pear, sweet but nowhere cloying, very vinous, thick and oily mouthfeel gliding heavily over the tongue, leaving behind a thick trail of nutty, caramelly and toffeeish malts further sweetened with honeyish residual sugars and guiding the palate towards a complex grande finale of ongoing thickly nutty maltiness, beautifully dosed tannic woodiness including old vanilla bean-like traits and bourbon colourings; wine effects, normally providing a certain tartness, remain cloaked in sweetness and woodiness - and take on an old (elegantly oxidized) medium dry sherry-like note which lasts and lasts, bringing considerable alcohol warmth to throat and chest, yet even at 14% ABV, there is not a trace of unpleasant astringency and though this is obviously a hefty sipper, to be ingested in a cautious and contemplating way, drinkability (proportionally) remains remarkably high. I adore a good, aged English style barleywine and it's hard to imagine there are many others out there that get any better than this. Astonishing.

Bottle at Hopishop 2017. Aroma of bourbon booze, malt, raisin, cherry and caramel fudge. Flavor of vanilla, bourbon booze, caramel fudge, cherry and ripe malt. Long finish. Very good.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a fleeting off white head. Sweet caramel aromas. Big sweet caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, and chocolate highlights. Oak and booze copilots. Fantastic. Complex with a massive body. Truly this is an incredible beer.

Bottle thanks to Dustin. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong whiskey, wood, toffee, english yeast. Thick mouth, nice whiskey, wood, vanilla, nice balance of bitter and sweetness, really enjoyed this one.
