COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made to Celebrate Founders 15th Anniversary, Bolt Cutter Barley Wine is an American barley wine that pours deep copper color and is strong, sweet and malt-forward, with a spicy complexity. Typical of the style, it is very cellarable. The final product is a blend using beer that was aged in Bourbon barrels, some from aged maple syrup Bourbon barrels and some from standard fermentation. After blending, the beer was allowed to mature in bottles and kegs for a few months before releasing.

Bottle. The pour is a bright hazy orange. The aroma is a nice mix of bourbon and hops. The taste is more hops than anything. A little boozy, but a good head then hops take over. Not a lot of bourbon flavor imo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (2419) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with thin cream head and solid lacing. Aroma is booze, sweet malty caramel and toffee. Taste follows, add some more complex malts, a hint of bitterness, and less booziness. Pretty solid for a barley wine.
