3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy deep roast Amber, with a delightful looking cap of a foamy light tan head. Rich bready boozy English Barleywine notes with a dash of wood and cherry and dates. Smooth and semisweet fruity flavor that’s got almost like some red grape and dark red berry flavors with a malty boozy depth and that woody tone is back from the nose. Semi fruity and fleshy with an almost boring malt base.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a half finger of head on a hazy light brown body.
The aroma has a little caramel, lots of hay, barnyard and plowed dirt.
The taste is grainy, a little caramel sweetness, more dirt and grains.
The texture is fairly light with nice fizz.
The aroma is great, the flavor fine.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong woody spicy sweet caramel cocoa aroma. Reminds me of their prohibition ale.
Pours an amberish brown with small creamy yellowish head
Strong malty sweet flavor of caramel and cocoa well balanced with woody spicy hop. Surprisingly easy to drink.
Medium full bodied, medium CO2, slight alcohol warmth, tongue numbing, lasting bitter finish that beckons for another sip.
Very well balanced American Barleywine. I enjoy the hops that Speakeasy likes to use. I have no problem sipping this all night

Draft at Eulogy. Murky dark brown pour with lots of beige foam on top. Left a sheet of lace. Solid dark caramel flavors. Espresso. Semi-sweet cocoa. Molasses candies. Has an interesting powdery texture. Alcohol feels big but not overly boozy. A big toffee malt bomb.

Bottle. Pours a muddy brown color with a Carmel note that's heavy and boozy. Taste is the same with some more sugar. Not a bad sipper

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Born on 02/06/15". Pours a very dark ruby red with lasting, off-white head. Faint aromas of cherries, apples, and alcohol. Flavours bring alcohol up front followed by toffee, chocolate, cherry cough medicine, and a dry bitterness. Not a ton of complexity and the flavours are relatively light except the lingering roast and bitterness in the finish.

Bomber. Caramel and dark fruit aroma with slight hints of citrus and pine resiny hops. Pours amber-orange with one finger of off white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with good caramel and dark fruit flavors with a thinner body than expected for a barleywine. Finishes smooth and dry with pine resiny hops as well as some citrus. Solid American barleywine.
