A- pours an opaque caramel with cola brown edges. S- caramel, toffee, vanilla, raisins, figs, ripe apples, banana bread, walnuts, tobacco, mince meat spices and burnt sugar. All fairly rich, but standard. A hint of rubber. M- oily full body. Light carb. T- high mineral water content to start and runs through to a relatively flat end. Caramel and tootsie rolls are strong at first. Some bread and banana esters in the middle with apples and dried fruits. Cola at the end with a slight vinous quality.

Poured into a snifter from a 2013 bottle batch 107. Aroma is brown sugar and some banana. Appearance is a clear dark reddish brown with a 1/2 finger light tan head. Taste is caramel malt brown sugar grapes and light hops. This is called an American Barleywine but more so resembles an English BW. Palate is very well done. Smooth with a nice mouth feel. Overall I like this alot. Never had fresh but as a year old beer it is excellent. Cheers.

Poured from a 2013 batch 107 bomber purchased at Westlake View Liquors into a snifter a reddish brown with little head slight carbonation. Aroma is spiced brown sugar. Flavor is boozy smooth. Sweet caramel. Slight hops for an American BW. More English in style & quite exquisite. One of the better American Barleywines I have tasted. Blended smoothly. Bitterness almost obsolete. NICE!

Bomber bottle to glass. A very dark pour. Sweet caramel and raisin aroma. A lot of caramel and malt flavor, with light-medium carbonation. Finishes a little warm in the throat. Mmmm... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
