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.–

malty aroma with faint hints of raison and plum. amber and clear in color with nice head. taste is mostly malty but has some hops notes to it. dark caramel malt and raison notes present. taste end clean but rather quickly for a barleywine.

SteveOrz85 (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2016
8 oz can from 4 pack. Served in a snifter. Very very thin head. Very little lacing. Beer is a dark honey color. Arom is some floral hops and honey. Taste os medium bitter lightly sweet. Lots of hops, more than expected in a barley wine. High alcohol is obvious bit not over abundant. Not as smooth as I had hoped for and not as sweet. Average to lighter carbonation and full bodied beer. Overall it is ok but not the best barleywine I have tried.

PorterPounder (7884) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - cute, tiny 8.4 oz can. Pours a deep dark, sparkling copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma has some nutty accents, a hint of sweet bubble gum. Flavor is thick and full-bodied with some hints of citrus, some pomegranate-like fruity sweetness, a touch of dates and raisins, a brief hint of Christmas spices, just a touch of port-like booziness. Mouthfeel is rich and thick. Impressed.

It pours a caramel cloudy color with a large tan head. There are aromas of molasses, citrus, plums, grains, figs, and alcohol. The flavors are dominated by the molasses and alcohol with the citrus, plums, grains, and figs in the background. It has a full body with a slightly hot alcohol feel to it with strong bitterness. Overall, this is a strong alcohol beer that finishes a bit hot with a good combination of citrus and dark fruits combined with molasses and grains.
