This beer is AMAZING. It has a vanilla aroma. You really can smell the bourbon. It is a beautiful dark brown color with hints of red. The cream colored head last and sticks beautifully to the edge of the glass as if to count the number of sips you have taken. It starts off with a very strong complex flavor but isn't too heavy. For an 11% beer (sorry barley wine) it doesn't taste strongly if alcohol. It finishes cleanly with a taste of vanilla. This is one of my all time favorite can't get enough of it beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från SB, provning med ölsällskapet. Mörk koppar/mahogny med fint gräddigt beigevitt skum. Doft av apelsinskal, fruktkaka, kolaremmar, marmelad, torkad frukt. Stor maffig kropp med en lätt fatkaraktär. Värmande smak med kola, apelsin, bränt socker och toner av bourbon och lönnsirap. Riktigt gott!

Bomber, 2016 vintage. Caramel malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, bourbon and oak. Pours dark cloudy caramel colored with a tan head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with rich caramel malt, dark fruit and dark chocolate flavors with a full body and dry mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and dry with vanilla, bourbon, oak and a good amount of warming booze that lingers long after each sip. More of a wintry beer, but pretty nice anytime.

Brewhemia (320) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2017
Delicious barley wine with amazing vinious aroma with loads of dried fruits, caramel and vanilla notes and with a touch a lightly roasted malt. The taste is fantastic as well. Lots of sweetness but a good amount of bitterness in the finish adds balance and as does the alcohol though. Though very high in alcohol it does in no way become dominant or unpleasant. Very well balanced in both aroma and taste and thus a fantastic beer in my opinion.
