Bomber. Light reddish brown in appearance with a half-inch of foamy head. Lots of caramelized sugar and malt aromas as well as brown sugar and rum. The flavor starts with a heavy dose of caramel and toasted malt followed by molasses, candied figs, resiny hops and alcohol. The mouthfeel is a little syrupy with medium carbonation and a sweet, boozy finish. Overall, I would say itís a solid Barley Wine with a fairly smooth blend of dark sugar and malt flavors. Itís good to see Redhook finally venture into the land of strong beers.

Tap at Amesbury Ale House. Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head recedes to hug rim. Orange citrus aromas. Well balanced with fruity citrus and dark caramel. Lasting toffee and hop finish. ABV very well hidden.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2010
22oz bottle from Vegas. Pours a clear, copper-bronze color with a medium khaki head and foamy, sticky lacing. Big, sweet aroma with some caramel and hops with maybe some cherry? Pretty classic barley wine flavor but maybe a little thin. The bitterness is strong and leaves a little tingle to your lips. Okay

AirForceHops (2942) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 24, 2010
on tap @ Red Hook brew pub. Pours a dark copper red color with a decent amount of head with large bubbles. The taste is bright and fruity at first sort of like a tart pear, or apple. Would not have guessed the alcohol content was so high, yet it does have a slight warming finish.I drank the 2010 yet would love to try some of the aged bottles. I donít know a lot about this style of beer. Iím getting ready to try a few more to get an idea of what itís all about.

22oz bottle. Pours a deep dark amber. Slight head. Aroma is slightly spicy. Taste is smooth. A slightly caramel and maybe banana taste but definitely some kind of fruit-hop taste in there. Alcohol is well hidden. A lot going on but very smooth. A nice beer.

madvike (2658) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle - Clear brown pour with a small white head. Really sweet with a decent amount of sharp alcohol. Pretty sweet taste, too. Caramel, with some sharp alcohol on the finish. Malty, but really not that much flavor. Just not sure what this one was trying to achieve.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Year-old bottle: Pours a clear orange with a small off-white head, huge aroma with brown sugar and citrus, heavy body, starts lightly sweet and ends bitter. I drank a bottle when it first came out, but it wasnít anywhere as good as an aged bottle.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 21, 2010
22 oz bottle from 09/09. Pours clear deep amber with a thick foamy off white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, pine resin and alcohol. There is a fair amount of caramel malt sweetness but the hop bitterness slightly dominates the flavor, there is also a light oaky alcohol flavor. Medium to full body with a mellow carbonation and a syrupy mouth feel. Pretty good Barley Wine, good to see Redhook trying some new, big beers.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear copper beer with no head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and plum. The flavor is malt, sweetness, raisin, plum and a high level of alcohol. The palate is alcoholwarmth. Overall this beer has a lot of alcohol, and needs something to balance it out.
