4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours amber/copper with an off-white head that’s rather foamy. Aromas of burnt caramel and aged hop. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is more citrus/resin than anything, but some good caramel is underneath. This stuff is really hoppy for a barley wine. Killer ale.
