COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in tradition of Englishstyle barley wines, Cereal Killer offers an explosion of full-bodied, liquid goodness. Robust malty flavors converge with caramel, toffee, molasses and dark fruit notes to produce a remarkably complex yet palate-pleasing beer. Its intense malt character is complemented by a subtle citrus finish from the hops. With cellar-aging Cereal Killer’s flavor evolves further, developing a sherry-like aroma and flavor similar to a cask-aged port. Winner of the Gold Medal for Wood and Barrel-Aged Strong Beers at 2009 GABF.

Deep rusty amber body with a scant off-white head. Sweet maple, earth, and caramelized fruit aromas. Quite sweet and sticky with fruity English malt signatures. Also has a note of brandy and a light edge of bitter roast. A sticky sipper and an average barleywine, at best.

OldGrowth (3177) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2007
bottle. from trade with Lou18. So-so aroma. Wet cardboard, little fruity, dried cherry, peach. Little sugar. Clean brownish orange color, small head and minor lacing. Bittersweet flavor. Caramel, brown sugar, little banana, gingerbread, honet, toasted wheat, little oat. Medium body, oily creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet finish. Eh, quite the dull beer, a big sweety. Tasted like wort. Just didn’t come together for me.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2007
2006 22 oz. bottle via trade with Pailhead - Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a one finger thick light tan head. Very light lacing. Has a spicey sweet toasted malt and light esters aroma. Quite nice. Has kind of a tangy malt flavor. A very unique tasting BW. Alcohol is noticeable. Nice balance. Medium to full body. Malt comes to the front as the beer warms. Very nice beer. Thanks Kevin.

HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 Bottle (650ml). shared with mds, his bottle. Deep cloudy brownish orange pour with a decent if diminishing head. Mild alcohol and sweet malt in the aroma, light hops and quite a bit of fruit. The taste was mild, very soft and easy to drink - only moderate alcohol, although it built on the tongue, some grassy/herbal hop sharpness works well with the juicy malt backbone - quite subtle, not in-your-face at all. Very gentle mouthfeel, not creamy, not silky, sort of both - mildly astringent, not much carbonation, and almost luxuriantly slow finish - very nice, very drinkable.

Fruit on the noes domanace of canned peaches and light licorice aroma. Dark red color. Light amount of fine sediment not evedent until the end of the glass. Big malty favor but not too sweet. Watery finish.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby-brown body with a soapy white head. The aroma is american-esque with some nice fresh and fruity hops. The flavour is more British-like with lots of lithe darkish malts: sweet caramel, toast, and cookie sweetness. Somewhat soft but in the middle to the finish there is a little bit of hop bite and alcohol warmth.
Purchased at Bello Vino in Ann Arbor duing the month of December, 2006.
