COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep, mahogany color, rich malt candied, rock sugar flavors with sweet burnt currant and fig aromas. It’s strong alcohol content is tempered by a clean bitterness and complex flavors. This Barley Wine is named for Cornelius de Boom, the San Francisco Belgian Consulate General (1850 to 1851) and surprisingly the name of the alley along-side the 21st Amendment on 2nd Street.–

JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 8, 2016
Dark copper color with a minimal beige head (eventually a small ring of small bubbles about the rim of the glass). Very much a barleywine scent. Nose of sweet toasted malt, fruit cake, toasted nuts and bit of alcohol. Sweet start, but not overly lasting. Orange peel and ripe fruit wander about. Bitterness kicks in, in the finish and linger. A light burn also starts to show up after a few sips. Strong rum fruitcake, or rum balls come to mind. 8.4 oz. is really about the right size for this style. The fruit, citrus and alcohol seem to work together. I’m thinking this will mellow out quite nicely and look forward to trying again in a few months or longer.
