COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those not familiar with a Barleywine, it is a Strong Ale, originally brewed in England in the nineteenth century but is now brewed worldwide. The name Barleywine basically means that it is a beer as strong as wine. Guaranteed to warm you up on a cold evening! Brewed using premium 2-Row, CaraRed, Crystal, Carafoam, and Wheat malts. We also used Magnum, Cascade, Summit, and CTZ hops. Cheers!

Classic barleywine smell, good sweet, alcohol smell, brownish/gold appearance, one finger head, great sweet/bitter combo taste, almost a honey taste to it. This is a great barley, will taste even better aged.

22 oz bottle, 4/2/13. Just clear amber brown with beige froth and clingy wet lace. Nose is caramel, apricot, baked apple and nutmeg. Silky medium body with soft sexy carb. Taste is caramel, rum, banana and raisin finishing with bitter grass and citrus pith. Fruity then hoppy; solid.

Caytinator (899) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bomber released 3/25/12, drank on 5/17/14. I never had this beer fresh, but it is very mellow after 2 years in the cellar. Toffee and sweetbreads in the aroma, it pours a rich mahogany opaque color, with a tan persistent head. The aroma has a light punch, but it softens quickly into alcoholic warmth. Aftertaste is light and long. Very well done for the style, I’m a fan

Bomber I picked up at Lee?s Discount Liqours E Flamingo. Nose is spicy, hoppy floral and tropical fruits, and toffee. Crystal clear rusty red with a medium beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter lightly sweet fruity and toffee. Pretty tasty with a lot of DIPA characteristics.

skmikeg (841) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Pours a reddish dark brown with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits, molasses, raisins, sweet toffee and caramel, and some light alcohol. Taste is sweet malts, toffee, dark fruits, burnt caramel, molasses, raisins, bread pudding, light grassy hops, and some light booze. Has a medium full body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slightly bitter, medium-long, slightly warming finish. Overall, a pretty tasty barleywine.

Thanks kathouse for this beauty. Pours a deep caramel color with white head. Big malty corn syrup aromas. Honey too. Flavors are very sweet. Honey, brown sugar, corn syrup. Nice hoppy bitterness on the finish. Coats the palate nicely. Great stuff.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a moderate off white head on it. Nose is a little sweet and filled with just a bit of grains, with a hint of some whiskey in there. Taste is little sweet and heavy, and ever so slightly boozy.
