Bottled at PBF, thanks to baggio’s American friend whose name escapes at this time of the night. Hazy mahogany colour, small head. Bourbony caramel aroma. Sweet, full bodied, well rounded mouthfeel. Fudge wrapped in vanilla with heating bourbon and white pepper. Despite the sweet soft mouthfeel the heat of the bourbon takes over.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is mahogany in color with a khaki head. Toffee and bready malts with a nice fruitiness. A touch of roasted malts, lots of toast, mild vanilla, and some floral hops. Caramel, cocoa powder, and toast are prominent on the palate. Some light vanilla, floral and pine hops with a light bitterness. Moderate sweetness of molasses and a hint of dark fruits. Good, but not as good as Old Inventory.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours very dark brown with a 2 finger creamy beige/tan head. Aroma is mostly brown sugar. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle with suggestions of chocolate. Or coffee. Or something. There’s no direct heat, but my nose knows there’s alcohol here. Nice in that it’s not the sickly brown sugar many barleywines seem to be. It’s not dry, but it’s not excessively sweet, and it’s just lightly astringent. With a little time it develops cherry pit flavor. Thinking this is good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a murky dark brownish-amber color with a medium creamy light beige head that recedes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roast malt, fruit and oak. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit, earthy hops and oak. The finish is mildly boozy with an oaky bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a lightly murky, deep brown hued body with a receding tan hued head. Any attempt at lace is batted down by alcohol legs. Aromas are of bourbon, molasses, marzipan, brown sugar, vanillin, barrel, dates, oak, leather and mild oxidation. The bourbon character is a bit on the brash side of things (bourbon quality wise). Kola and kirsch. Flavors are of leather, brown sugar, toffee, chewy, caramel, bitter. Lots of oak tannin and vanilla. Medium alcohol warmth, low carbonation with lots of bitter tannins in the finish.
