22oz bomber. Picked up 4 of them at 4.99 each..can’t beat that. Deep mahogany brown body, looks filtered. Foamy beige heads fades into a thin oily layer. Woody alcohol soaked amber malt. Rich and rugged, thick old school US Barleywine. Overbearing. Not really that drinkable, more of a slow sipper. OK. AWISLguy (3429) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2014
2013 Bomber from Woodmans in the Falls poured into my New Holland tulip. Cellar aged for 3 months, but likely much closer to a year in age. Pours a clear brownish orange with an off-white head around the rim leaving nice spots of lace. Aroma has dark fruits, sweet stone fruits, pine and citrus. Heavily hopped without a definitive smell. Taste is of sweet dark fruits (plums, raisins, grapes), some citrus (oranges and grapefruit), tangy pine and some earthiness. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes heavily sweet with some bitterness underneath. Very hoppy without much definition. tgncc (3144) - Bellmore, New York, USA - APR 23, 2014
Via trade with Crajun. The aroma is sweet, dark fruits, bready. The appearance is deep red brown, opaque, off white head. The flavor is sweet, dark ripe fruit. The booze is well hidden. The finish is sweet, light booze. Medium in body. Nice barley wine. Doesn’t kill with hops. FestDecBeet (412) - - APR 20, 2014

Nice toasty malt aromas. Pours clear reddish brown with a foamy head. Very sweet for a barleywine, masks the alcohol content and doesn’t assault you with hops.

651 ml bottle. Pours a nice reddish-brown with a one inch tan head that lasts. Taste is of malt, barley, caramel, hops, pine, resin, grapefruit, citrus Similar aroma. Has a full body with a warming finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable. Well worth having again. rxeight (3333) - Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2014
2011 bottle. Sampled at bottle share. Decent stuff. Tastes like old barleywine. Sweet and boozy. tdoyledesign (179) - Michigan, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Pours a deep golden red/brown. Aroma is malts and sweet sugars. Taste is pretty well balanced for a barleywine while still showcasing the ABV without being overpowering. Palate is sweet up front with a nice malt balance or molasses and sugars. Solid barleywine! MacBoost (1963) - Victor, New York, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pours a clear dark amber color with little to no head. Aromas of caramel, sweet malt, perhaps a whiff of oxidized hops. Taste is sweet, very sweet. Some bitterness. Flavor is caramel mixed with booze and hops. Alcohol is noticeable and upfront. Finishes sweet and warming. 600 calories for this bomber. drsordr (2927) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour dark brown copper. Nose caramel, toffee, and some booze. Taste sweet malt up front, caramel and toffee on the taste as well. Late palate alcohol. Some bitter in the finish. Still some heat for 2010 vintage.
