3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt and burlap (in the best way). Clear dark brown, tan head, waves of lace. Taste is malt that adds medium carbonation on the swallow, then a slap of hops. The hop "sting" slowly drops, exposing more malt. Big and bold, but not heavy. Solid.

Pours a mahogany color with a tan head that vanishes quickly.
Smells, rather up front, of a complex mixture of hops and floral.
Taste, overwhelming bitter hops, some spice a dash of malt , well hidden alcohol with a very hard to find candy finish.
Overall? The only major setback is the price, 12$ for a single bottle. But if youíve got the bonepower, get it!

With Z , pours a mahogany brown maple color with no head . Nose is sweet caramel, malt and toffee. Taste is very bitterly sweet with strong alcohol . Finishes on the same hoppy bitter heavy malty , and caramel notes. This one packs a punch . Quaff Score 6 / 10

Big bottle with commonmac during March madness. Alcohol and dark fruit nose. Sweet, medium boozy, good oily mouthfeel. This is a barley wine up my alley.

3/6/16. Bomber. Earthy hop-filled nose. Taste is huge with thick medium roast malt competing with a monster hop profile. Not aged so still a bit raw. I could see the nose largely disappearing w age but the body rounding out nicely.

Rose-pink red color. Icy lacing. Itís shiny.
The barley is very prominent in the nose: grainy but a little sugary. Candi sugars, like ribbon candy, with a touch of cherry.
The flavor is bitter cherry, barley grains, cough drops. Very bitter aftertaste (which I like).
Feels chewy and prickly. Itís not the most distinctive b-wine Iíve had. In fact itís rather representative. But what it does it does well.

Bottle from...not sure. Medium amber with some haze and lasting swirl head. Mildly boozy toasted caramel aroma with some spicy hop. Toasted caramel and fruit sweetness with some grass and roasted nuts. Citrus and pine bitterness made almost astringent by the assertive fine carbo. Medium-full body. Some booze in the finish. Extra points for being balls out even if there are some rough edges. Very good.

Beautiful rich malty beer with exceptional hop/malt balance. Spruce and citrus aromatics with caramel red malt richness. So tasty, even on a forty degree (celsius) day
