Bottle to snifter. Nose is woody with hints of vanilla. Strong malt sweetness in the nose as well. Pour is a hazy, murky, reddish Orange with a very small white head. Taste is chewy sweet at first, then the alcohol hits and it’s enough to make the hairs on my arm stand straight up. Finished with a grainy, woody, almost drying character. Second sip goes down much smoother now knowing what to expect, but there is just no way to hide that alcohol. The wood adds a nice vanilla smoothness to it, almost cakey character to it. Slightly crusty, in a good way. Overall very good but would like it toned down a tad.

dmac (4343) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Poured an ugly orange brown center with light muddy edges and a smaller foamy white head. Aroma is damn solid, woody, light burnt honey, dry fruit, hiney topped bread, molasses, very slight hint of alcohol. Medium body, softer carbonation and some decent heat to slow you down on this big boy. Flavor of caramel and molassess, dry wood, alcohol, honey topped grains, hint of watered down scotch. Put this in the like column.

On draft. Slightly murky orange pour, with a thin off white head. Sweet caramel, sugary, fruit, whiskey, citrus, sweet bread, and bitter finish. Too sweet for me, but ok.

Warped_Silver (106) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours orange yellow and hazy. Aroma is hoppy with booze and straw/hay. Mouthfeel sweet, hoppy, sticky. Med body for barley wine. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2463) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Oak aging is obvious in tasting, where it mainly provides woody and rye whisky flavors, but it’s subtle at most in the aroma. Fruit and booze in the nose. Nicely complex and soft for style but alcohol should be more hidden .

bhensonb (11807) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours really hazy, murky, dark copper with a transient beige head. Aroma is woody, rye spice and marvelous stone fruits. Like pickled peach minus the pickeling? An aroma that is marvelously new to me. Flavor? There’s tropical and citrus/apple. Amazing. Especially the rye. With wood on tongue edges. Simply amazing flavors. Finishing wood and fruit and rye spice. Not quite dry, but going that way. Frickin delicious!!!

marcus (6996) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours orange/brown with a modest beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a vanilla/bourbon fruit flavor with lots of alcohol and a warm finish. A very nice barley wine.
