Deep, mahogany color, rich malt candied, rock sugar flavors with sweet burnt currant and fig aromas. Itís strong alcohol content is tempered by a clean bitterness and complex flavors. This Barley Wine is named for Cornelius de Boom, the San Francisco Belgian Consulate General (1850 to 1851) and surprisingly the name of the alley along-side the 21st Amendment on 2nd Street.Ė

Drank this as a last slot in a mixed 6. Not too bad, got better as it warmed. A decent 21st Amendment offering, with ABV to boot.

Aroma is weak and the flavor is also weak. Pour is a nice amber color with zero head.

On draft at Morris Tap & Grill in Randolph. Very rich and intense. Aroma and flavors of dried prune, fig and alcohol. Not the most smooth or sophisticated within this style.

When I opened and tasted this, the score was somewhere between a 3.0 and 3.5. As it warmed up, that went from 3.5 to a solid 4. A bitter finish and a delicious barleywine, especially as it warms. My wife nor my beer friends drink barleywines which often means Iím stuck with mostly 22 oz bombers thatís usually too much at one time. The little 8-ish ounce cans fit the bill making the want to buy again more attractive...and I will. This is a very nice American barleywine.

Small can. Pours reddish amber with white head. Nose and taste of candi sugar, lightly burnt caramel malt, alcohol soaked citrus and white and brown sugar. Medium body.

Tastes mostly like brown sugar and pine hops, some alcohol and a weird flavor I canít place that doesnít really belong. Not terrible, but not particularly good either. And the 8.4 oz can is lame.

On tap at Small Batch. Hazy tan pour. Mild toffee and pine notes in the nose. Flavor is very mild, slightly musty, with notes of caramel and pine. Fairly watery body. A bit weak for a barleywine.

8 oz can. Kenny Road Market, $9.99 for 4 x 8oz cans. Thanks, Alex, for sharing. Dark sugar, dark fruit aroma; thin off white head and strong lacing. Full, sticky, sweet, smooth palate. Not overly bitter. Relatively unique barley wine.

Thanks to Dave for sharing. The beer is amber orange with a thin beige collar. The aroma offers malt, alcohol, sweet fruit, furniture cleaner, caramels, butterscotch candies. The flavor is ok. Some metallic notes. Noticeable alcohol throughout. A bold beer. A bit aggressive and slightly harsh on the palate. Not as bad as I made it sound. Middle of the road.
