Bomber from Safeway. Bottling 15. (9.2%) Pours a very dark fig sort of color. Maybe prune. Rich sweet malty nose with a lot of dark fruitiness. Some hop notes as well. Malty with big oak flavors up front. Some dark fruit as well. Some more oak and a touch of vanilla. Some hoppiness with a touch of booze in the finish. Really tasty. Love the wood.

bottle, more garbage water. Sweet and trashy. Foul smell. How do you screw up a barleywine this bad? Undrinkable.

Cherry amber pour, compact off-white head,scant lacing. Nose is floral, with smoky malt. Bittersweet. Middle is all over the place; pencil shavings, ginger, licorice, sweet malt and alcohol. Finishes almost like a Madeira with hops. This is a sipper.

They have No. 014 and No. 015, and who knows what else. This one has a rich, earthy flavor, a lot like whiskey. Delicious.

maxwelldeux (4025) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle, No. 15 bottling. Pours a clear dark amber color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose has some caramel and wood elements to it, and seems a little harsh and boozy up front. Taste is smooth, but boozy, and tastes a little of cheap whiskey.

Theydon_Bois (11073) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
Keg at the brewpub, PDX, 09/11/14. Clear golden amber with a decent light beige covering. Nose is caramel malt, spice, toffee, dark fruits. Taste comprises rich toffee, sweet licks, toasted brown sugar, dates, figs, caramel fudge. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lightly warming alcohol. Decent well rounded barley wine.

Lots going on with bitter hops, sweet malt and dark fruit out front. Must be a barley wine!

Aroma of bubblegum grape. Yes grape bubblegum. Looks nice. Dark hazy red brown, nice creamy tan head. Taste is sweet. Boozy. Malty. Gummy. Palate is heavy. Boozy. Smooth. Overall this one sort of misses the mark for me. With that huge grape gum note that’s all I can think of. An ok beer but not amazing.
