Deep, mahogany color, rich malt candied, rock sugar flavors with sweet burnt currant and fig aromas. It’s 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.–

Room 316 Tulip Hotel tasting with Ian and Colin. Clear amber beer with a good pale cream colourer head. Palate is soft and a little dry. Dry caramel malt, little lactose. Alcohol spice. Mild dried fruits. Finishes dry. Very dull and disappointing. Expect better from these guys.

Room 316 tasting at the Tulip, Bodegraven, 27/09/13 note the dutch sounding name! Barley Wine in a can - I ask you ?!? Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is bitter fruits, orange, dark toffee, light booze, grain. Taste comprises bready malts, dark fruit, sugars, toffee, boozey do. Full bodied, fine carbonation, boozey heat in the finish. This was a real let down, no depth one trick pony with boozey heat all over, pretty much bottom of the barley wine class!

Can @ home. Copper pour with a small khaki head. Juicy pineapple, grapefruit, and some piney hops. A little bit of booze and some herbal notes. Peach juice, too. Pretty heavy caramel and brown sugar as well. Flavor is just super sweet and caramel heavy. Lots of toffee and pineapple juice. Kind of bitter and boozy finish.
