Bomber from a December 2012 bottle. Red/copper/orange with a tan head. Caramel and malty. Smells like a big IPA. Kinda tastes like an imperial IPA past it's prime with an orange finish

Sweet yet spicy rye makes up the base of this fine beer. A mild aroma, but a big intense, clean flavor highlight the wonderful alcohol content and ensuing buzz of this one.

From the brewery shop. This is irritate the hop heads but I think the hops were a too much for this kind of beer. Not that the piney fresh hop flavor was bad but barley wines to me always seemed like they should emphasize the malt much more. It was malty but it got lost a little with the hops. Other than that I good beer. Serving: Bottle

Gold and Bronze
Nose is great…resinous, almost cheesy. Very sweet…loads of caramel and toffee. Almost like an ice cream sandwich without the chocolate. The pine cone rocks and it’s insanely clean, almost mineral like

Strong with high alcohol content. Nice carmel color. Malty flavor, but somewhat plain and unimpressive.

22 oz. bottle aged a year. Dark amber color light head retention. Really nice sweet nose, raisin, sugar plums, candy sugar. Flavor reflects the aroma. The hop variety you can tell was here and now has been over taken by the sugary malts. Citrus flavor toward the finish with carbonation giving a slightly creamy and smooth finish. The complex malts may only get better with time. I enjoyed this an awful lot.

A dark reddish copper Barley Wine with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with treacle, grassy floral hops, light chalky notes, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with mineral harshness, scotch wood character, floral catty hops, loads of warming alcohol, nice. On tap at brewery
