This has a pretty good aroma, some molasses and perhaps a hint of passion fruit. The flavor is good as well. A lot of malt, but a good hop bitterness too. Much better than I anticipated from red hook.

22oz in shaker. Brilliant amber; medium buff colored head. Delightful buttery toffee and nutmeg nose. Generous initial sweetness is quickly eclipsed with clean, snappy, peppery spices; some mineral, wood and chlorophyll tones weird things up somewhat. Medium body and carbonation both make this drink more like an "American Strong Ale" than what I think of as a barleywine (which would be bigger and lower respectively).

3/26/09 on draft at Brouwers, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is perfumy caramel malt forward with a strong citrus hop balance. Appearance is rich ruby, faintly hazy with a well maintained cream head and heavy lacing. Flavor is complex herbal malt forward with balancing sourness and rich candilike citrus that only helps. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with a citrus tang and low carb texture; low warmth. Overall, not as heavy as expected, but highly drinkable and balanced for a barleywine.

Big beer at 10.1 ABV. Nice malty sweet, citrus hop aroma. Deep caramel and toffee flavours with a smooth bitter finish. Heavy, slick body. Alcohol very well hidden. Damn good stuff.

this a very prime example of what an APA is. Lots of rich malts. the malts are strong but overpowering with the bitterness. the taste is exurbant this one that everybody must try at least once.

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.

mcc5468 (122) - USA - OCT 17, 2010
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.

Decent head for a barleywine of varying sized bubbles that surprisingly does not last all that long. Sweet caramel aroma with lots of malts, brown sugar, ethanol and a bit of smoke. Color is a nice crimson orange. Flavor is loaded with sweet malts, caramel, a bit of spicyness and some peat. A very earthy barlewine. Pretty noticable alcohol kick and presence. Lingering smoked malts and caramel at the finish. Super smooth going down. I like this barleywine a lot.

Pours with a three fingered, cream head that goes slowly and leaves some lace. Nice clear, deep amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is cherry and caramel. Flavor is caramel but barely sweet, sweet and sour cherry. High ABV stays hidden. Some bitter aftertaste. The ABV is 9.8% since we have a strange law here in NH limiting beer to 10%. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH.
