Courtesy of bvc. This 2009 bomber pours crystal clear amber with ruby hues and off white head. The aroma is a bit boozy and also has notes of caramel, dates, some earthiness and molasses. The taste is smooth sweetness from rich honey, caramel and molasses followed by pine hops, some malts, dates, prunes, raisins and slippery spicy hops. This is one yummy barleywine. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Thanks IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours translucent amber with an off-white head. Nose is malt, toffee, raisin, booze, and slight acetone with hops. Flavor is similar with hops all over. Finish lingers with toffee, malt, and hops. douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2010
2008 vintage. Bottle thanks to BVC. Pours a dark red color with a thick beige head. The aroma is rich berries, lots of huge malts here. A similar flavor to Uinta’s BW, and that is high praise; sweet and fruity, very dry rich malts, huge caramel. Very drinkable and pretty warm. Lovely. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2010

22oz bottle from megamaltman me thinks. thanks for the bonus!.... pours a murky and mostly cloudy unfiltered apple cider brown with a barely existent just off-white head... aroma of thick chewy caramel malts and dark fruit. almost syrupy and cloying even for just the aroma... flavors very much on par with the nose with an even sweeter sacharine and brown sugar followthrough. low to medium carbonation with a semi-full mouthfeel. if you are into sweet caramel and dark fruity barleywine, this might be up your alley.
