4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber picked up at Perryís in Livermore over a year ago. It pours with a dark mahogany body that supports a dark tan head of foam. The aroma is full up bourbon booze and vanilla as well as just a touch of spicy oak in the background. The taste has sweet malt soaked raisins and prunes and a bit of caramel. It quickly pulls up smooth sweet bourbon thinly ringed by vanilla and ends a little on the dry side. It seems boozy and bourbon-y but the more I drink the more Iím picking up the depth and rich beer notes.

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.

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. Thereís no direct heat, but my nose knows thereís alcohol here. Nice in that itís not the sickly brown sugar many barleywines seem to be. Itís not dry, but itís not excessively sweet, and itís just lightly astringent. With a little time it develops cherry pit flavor. Thinking this is good stuff.
