RATINGS: 16   MEAN: 3.02/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3/5   EST. CALORIES: 276   ABV: 9.2%
This barley wine ale is complex due to the interplay of its full body, malt caramel flavors, ester and alcohol characteristics and the use of ample hops in the brewing process. This beer will age well and with time may assert some vinous aromas and flavors.

Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
This one poured a darker amber color with a small off white head. Aroma was of caramel, light toast, berry fruits and not much else. Flavor was a bit thin and water for this type of beer, typical caramel and light toffee notes with not much else going on. Not offensive in any other way either though.

22 oz bottle aged at least one year: Pours reddish orange with little head. Aroma of sherry, raisins and mollasses. Taste is sweet and bitter, simple. Thin and slight cardboard. Slightly oxidized after one year under good storage conditions. Too sweet overall and alcohol is well masked.

Bomber courtesy of Jstax. Thanks! Pours a nice hazy amber with an off-white head. Nose is earth, toffee malt, some red grapes, and some strange bitterness. Flavor a mix of sweet malt, old nails, metal, peat, and some weird, astringent bitterness. A blend of very strange flavors in a weird beer.

Bottle. Thin light tan head on a murky dark copper brown. Candy sugar, red apple sweetness, caramel, and slight booze in the aroma. Toffee with some bitterness like peanut brittle sans the peanuts, sugary caramel finish, some minerals as well. Medium sticky body. Meh
