bomber 07 Vintage. Shared with Cyn after grading for me and coding for her. A reward of sorts. Pours copper orange with a tan head that faded to a ring. The nose is sweet and relatively light. Taste is sweet, but bitter way way too bitter for me. taste is hot and not so nice, it ain’t a 52 percentile for nothing, this barleywine is severly flawed. Oh well...

From a 22 oz bottle this poured a dark copper color with a big fat fluffy pillow of a head that left large chunks of lacing. Nose of caramel malts, fruits, and hops. This is supposed to be a Barley Wine but does not taste quite like one. Mouthfeel is somewhat sweet and oily. Flavor are complex but do not totally integrate. Alcohol is apparent. I actually found this decent to drink, and would be curious to see it would settle down in a couple of years. I will have to try to get another bottle.

4 ounce sample on tap at Sacramento Brewing’s 2007 Barleywine Festival. Grainy, cereal-like aroma with some citrus PNW hoppiness. Really grainy, though. Transparent copper color with an off white head. Way too light for this to be a barleywine. Flavor is dusty, musty, dirty, with lots of grains and cereal. Becomes dry and very grapefruity hopped and bitter to finish. With the name of this beer combined with the crazy hoppiness and the light color, I can only guess that this is a fucked up batch of an IIPA that they just sent for this festival. Perhaps it was a shitty test batch for the beer that was supposed to be their Organic Revolution? Either way, this is a piss-poor offering.

Cybercat (3195) - Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Pours an appetizing clear brownish copper with a thick, frothy head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma is strong and malty with a brandy-ish fruit overtone. Flavor has an undertone of molasses, as well as smoky and nutty hints - and the typical strong alcohol bite of a barleywine. Texture is fairly edgy, and it leaves a rather bitter, hoppy aftertaste.

SpringsLicker (3114) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2011
Pours hazy dark amber with a tall off-white head. Faint malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor that doesn’t come close to Barley wine complexity. Not bad, just not a Barley wine.

Bottle pours a hazy amber with a small off white head. Scent of hops and dark fruit. Taste is caramel and big time hops. Nice

Bottle shared by Rustyham. Pours clear caramel color with off white head. Caramel and alcohol aromas. Flavors of caramel, molasses and alcohol. Medium to full body with minimal carbonation. Thanks Nick.

22oz bottle from BevMo Carmel Mountain. Pored a beautiful clear amber ruby color with a nicely laced off whit head. Nose and flavor reminded me of a malty IPA. A good brew, not very indicative of the Barley wine style though.

Palidor19 (2917) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2008
Works well on all levels, its got a dark aroma of caramel and high malts. The taste is very herbal and has a dark malts flavor with high alcohol. A must have
