Bomber courtesy of bvc pours clear sparkling deep copper with thin off white head. The aroma has firm muted nearly moldy grapefruit, mild yet assertive citrus hops, pine, a mild level of spicy hops and a touch of floral. The taste has loads of various hops with smooth spicy hops, pine, floral, grapefruit and tangelo. Beneath all those hops is a thin layer of caramel and sweet maltiness. Great balance, great smoothness and a great American Style Barleywine. Thanks Boundary Bay!

22 oz. bottle, pours dark reddish brown with a tiny beige head. Aroma of toffee / treacle, brown sugar, and lots of sweetness. Flavour is massive, full-bodied dark caramel / toffee, brown sugar, and raisins, with a big alcohol kick. A most excellent barley wine.

Sweet carmale and butterscotch aroma. Sweet candyish flavour. Samiclausish, but not as sticky or cloying. Mellow and well-balanced.

Another really solid beer from Boundary Bay. I was lucky enough to get a side-by-side tasting of 2002 and 2003.

clean dark amber, not much head at all, but looks great. floral meadow milk caramel nose. smashing barleywine! The body is thinner than others which allows you to experience the waves of each sip. sweet becomes floral hoppy becomes oaky becomes warm becomes caramel sweet finish a only a touch hot. great for a barelywine that may be meant to be enjoyed young as there’s no vintage dating on the bottle.

From notes. Hazy amber. Disappearing off white carbonation. Dark berry/cherry preserves, rich malt, toasty caramel/cookie/toffee, fig newton, light dose of spicy, earthy, resinous hops, subtle alcohol. Full body, smooth. Easy to drink considering. Very nice barleywine.

August maroon-cider body with creamy burnt beige top. Luscious aroma full of medium crystal malts and dollops of fruitiness, punctuated by juicy pineapple bursts. Candi apple body, sweet like ice wine and with a powerful presence of candi malt and overripe fruit character. Wet hoppiness with juicy, fruity, sweet tea finish.

22-ounce bomber: Delicious, wholesome and pleasant barley wine. Murky deep amber. Fruity-sweet nose. Full-bodied texture. Wholesome flavors of caramel, nuts, wood and dark bread. Perfect amount of sweetness at its core. Bold yet round and smooth hops -- grassy, earthy and herbal. Touch of umami. Balanced hop bitterness is aided by a soothing amount of alcohol. Good sipper.
