COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning barley wine which has been aged two ways – in wooden bourbon barrels and Cabernet barrels. It will benefit with aging.

Poured a murky brown with lots of bubbles. Aroma has bourbon and hops. Taste is slightly watery, which is a little surprising for the style and the amount of alcohol. It makes it very smooth, however. Lots of bourbon flavor and some fruit, not the most complex barley wine. Overall enjoyable.

Brune aux reflets rubis. Nez très puissant de sucre cuit, d’alcool et de fruits rouges. Le boisé du baril perce avec évidence. Bouche très sucrées et boisée avec une finale étonnante qui me fait penser au chipotle (un peu fumé et piquant).

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Bomber into snifter glass. deep reddish-brown color with thin white head that disappears into a ring. Aroma of bourbon, oak, caramel, dark fruits and some vanilla. Taste is the aroma, adding some spiciness, chocolate and alcohol. Full body, low carbonation smooth with somewhat boozy finish. Warming and complex. IMHO much better then their regular Barleywine!

22 oz Bomber-Brownish pour w/good lacing. Bourbon aroma. Flavors of wood chips, Bourbon Barrels, some peat....mostly Bourbon. Solid brew, enjoyable.....not as good as the Cabernet Barrell, but good. Long Finish.

Bottle pours murky brown color with off white head. Aroma is booze, vanilla, brown sugar, and wood. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and finishes smooth. Its not hot. All the flavors meld together well and has a smooth finish. I really enjoyed the cab version of this as well. I enjoyed this one a touch more. Good stuff.

22oz bottle. Pours deep brownish-orange with thin head. Aroma is caramel and wood - complex, malty oak. Flavor is malty caramel, toffee, and oak/vanilla. Dry spritzy hop leads to an earthy bitter finish with chocolate+caramel aftertaste. Mouthfeel is briskly carbonated with a full body. Slightly astringent from oak and alcohol. Overall, rich and interesting, caramel and malty.

22 oz bottle. Part of a tasting 11/24/2013 at Fraser’s Pub in Ann Arbor. The pour is a reddish-brown with a thin filmy head and minimal lace. Whoa, the nose on this is pretty much of bourbon. It’s incredibly boozy. There is a hint of caramel on the front, and the bourbon drowns the rest out. The flavor begins with a promise, showing a little roastiness, some light caramel, and then BAM, all bourbon again. There are times where the complexity of the barleywine tries to poke through, but it just os overwhelmed. The mouth feel is pretty solid, and leaves a great coating on the tongue. Just wish it was a bit less boozy

arone12 (924) - Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Pours a very dark color with a thin head. Smells of bourbon and some sort of spice. Similar in taste to a octoberfest. Does not taste much like a barleywine but still good.

2012 vintage bomber, thanks sevenhokie! Rich bourbon aroma with notes of dark fruit and vanilla. Pours dark amber colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Sweet dark fruit flavors to start with a hint of vanilla. Finishes very smooth with excellent bourbon notes as well as a little bit of oak. Excellent barleywine.
