Lots going on with bitter hops, sweet malt and dark fruit out front. Must be a barley wine! Jamesthebrit (421) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Aroma of bubblegum grape. Yes grape bubblegum.
Looks nice. Dark hazy red brown, nice creamy tan head.
Taste is sweet. Boozy. Malty. Gummy.
Palate is heavy. Boozy. Smooth.
Overall this one sort of misses the mark for me. With that huge grape gum note that’s all I can think of. An ok beer but not amazing. maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2014
Bomber. Large caramel nose, some fumes. Pretty copper color. Slightly harsh initial, with caramel and raisins / mild bittering enters in mid / full rich finish, which then fades out quickly. Okay. Not exceptional. KyotoLefty (10603) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle from Nevitt. Spicy nose, cinnamon, caramel, raisin, apples, hops. Glowing amber, lace. Clear. Rather dry, caramel, dried fruit, sulfur, chocolate, cream. pushkinwow (2888) - Ottawa, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Clear mahogany with a rim of beige head. Fair amount of sugar, some malt, booze, hints of smoke, banana, full body, moderate carbonation, some bitterness on the palate but the sugar balances things out and there is a nice warming finish.

Eh- It looks like a barleywine. It’s a little alcohol forward both in aroma and in taste. The fruity esters here are a bit over the top. I initially got hints of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit-ish banana funky-ness. It’s an mediocre barleywine, but certainly not a homerun. tmrmwel (2204) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
On tap @ Bridgeport Brewing. Pours clear amber with a finger thick head. Aroma is caramel malts, burned sugar , coffee and chocolate. Medium body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts, caramel, kandi and notes of oak. kevinsenn (2263) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at BridgePort. Clear ruby with tan lacing. Sweet cherry and raisin aroma. Fruity hoppy candy taste, light bitter finish - nice. Medium-full body. Definitely the best I tried from BridgePort. douglas88 (9570) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a medium white head. A big malty sweet nose. The flavor is nutty, molasses, light heat, a bit of darker fruit. Very dry at times, some lingering malty toffee. Good. Very nice English style BW, Imaena (2328) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle. The nose is all hops. It pours a deep maple syrup brown. The taste is intense hops and sweet malt. Medium body with lively carbonation. Decent BW but nothing crazy.
