Bomber via trade.
Cuivré voire acajou, col beige.
Arôme est plein de barrique, whisky et vanille avec un petite rétro fruité rouge et note fine de malts arrivant en rétro-nasal, note aussi un petit effet oxydé dû à l'âge de la bouteille;
Palais est malté, caramel, fruits secs rappelant le raisin, le pruneau avec un complément de vanille, boisé de chêne américain procurant cette fine douceur et effet plaisant de whisky. Rubin77 (2973) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 12, 2018

Thank you Sebletitje! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG VI (2018). Dark brown amber, little tanned head. Nose is candied apple, herbal, low cough syrup. Bit too cough syrup but nice herbal oxidized apple, sugar, pie spice, syrup de Liège, apple, herbs,… Bit thin, imperfect but nice barley wine. ajnepple (7684) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2017
On tap at Hops & Pie. Deep, dark brown appearance with a fully dissipating tan head. Rich aroma of vanilla, caramel/toffee, light chocolate malt, toasted oak, light bourbon and a hint of dark fruits. Similar flavor, rich, smooth and balanced nicely. Thick, full body with soft carbonation, a creamy feel and a smooth, sweet finish. Excellent. ebone1988 (2336) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2017

Bomber, 2016 vintage. Rich sweet caramel malt and dark fruit aroma with notes of whiskey, toffee, warming booze and a hint of coconut. Pours mahogany colored with a very thin tan head that has no retention or lacing. Starts with excellent caramel malt and dark fruit sweetness with a bit of toffee as well as rich, full body and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes impeccably smooth with whiskey and vanilla flavors with a nice amount of warming, comforting booze at the very end. Excellent barleywine for cold winter nights, however I’d happily drink this anytime. MotherBrother (946) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2016
Pour a clear mahogany brown, with not head at all.
Aroma has some very nice barrel character to it. Abble wood, cinnamon apple pie, caramel, burned sugar, dark fruits. A whole lots of malty stuff going on.
Taste is pretty sweet, with faint hints os fruity sourness.
Medium body, slightly watery mouthfeel.
I was pleasently surprised by, really nice and comforting. Hoprider (806) - DENMARK - SEP 3, 2016
2014 bottle split 2 ways. Had this for the first time at the Darkness eve bottleshare and loved it. Pours a deep brownish crimson red with no head a a few bubbles here and there. The nose has soft bourbon notes and baked apples, caramel fudge and hints of booze. The taste is well rounded and all flavours are totally integrated. Not a trace of hops.. Christmassy english style BW. The mouthfeel is soft but alive. Really one of the best barleywines I can remember trying. Really well balanced with an elegant aftertaste. Thanks once again to Ryan for introducing me to this and sending a bottle to Denmark. Beerhunter111 (23966) - Beerland, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2016
