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.–

8.4 fl oz can at RBAG 2015. Clear brown color, has a small ring of white head. Typical barleywine nose of caramel and toffee with hop hints. Taste follows with caramel, toffee and hops. Bitterness was medium, late alcohol. A pretty good barleywine, decent balance.

Mini can shared at RBAG 2015 by Sid. Fruity caramel, lightly hoppy, finish is a bit boozy.

Can as shown. Pours a cloudy amber with no head. The aroma is dark fruits and caramel. Thin mouth, strong caramel, figs, very boozy, decent.

petite can - nose is typical. Sip adds more bitterness than I expect from the style. No overwhelmingly sweet. that’s an equation for balance.

Energy drink can poured. Pours a burnt orange color with little head. Gotta love a beer that can easily be passed as a normal beverage enjoyed while driving home. I’m kidding. But seriously. No, I’m kidding. Or am I? I am. What I’m trying to say is, I love the can. Original, which is great. Sweet, malty aroma. Sweet flavor overall, with some candy malt and sugary caramel. Lingering sweet flavor. Smooth considering the alcohol. Overall a good barley wine. Enjoyed this.

8.4oz energy drink size can. Stored in my cellar for a year. Opaque copper brown with creamy tan head. Aroma like a plate of sweet spiced cookies and a hint of booze. Taste is initially hop bitter (even after a year), sticky toffee, alcohol, rum soaked raisins, warming alcohol, and tropical hop finish. I like a good barleywine and this is a good barleywine.

Can @ home. Copper pour with a small khaki head. Juicy pineapple, grapefruit, and some piney hops. A little bit of booze and some herbal notes. Peach juice, too. Pretty heavy caramel and brown sugar as well. Flavor is just super sweet and caramel heavy. Lots of toffee and pineapple juice. Kind of bitter and boozy finish.

McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 28, 2015
Amber colour with a rocky dark white fading head and slow viscousity. Aromas of ripe fruits, like mango, banana and faint red currant develop with notes of figs and caramel malts. Soft carbonation with a slick-smooth texture and a fully body. Flavours of fruity sweetness develops encompassed by a solid malt structure yet leaving enough room for a well pointed hop bitterness inducing the quest for another sip. Long lasting very harmonic finish offering an interplay between sweet and bitter. Very good!

Patrickctenchi (6691) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Can: Hazy, brown...with a small tan head. Sweet wood, fig/raisin aroma. Taste is brown sugar, caramel malt, raisin... Slightly dry alcohol bitter...a little dark bread notes. A bit woody and bitter at the finish.
