COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made to Celebrate Founders 15th Anniversary, Bolt Cutter Barley Wine is an American barley wine that pours deep copper color and is strong, sweet and malt-forward, with a spicy complexity. Typical of the style, it is very cellarable. The final product is a blend using beer that was aged in Bourbon barrels, some from aged maple syrup Bourbon barrels and some from standard fermentation. After blending, the beer was allowed to mature in bottles and kegs for a few months before releasing.

Bigger tasting at Ronny’s flat, Copenhagen. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with modest fine carbonation. Spicy caramel malts. Brandyish alcohol. Dried fruits. Semi dry finish and a spicy linger. Still quite warm after a couple of years. Decent though.

Sample at Linköping Beer Expo. Almost clear amber liquid with small white head. Aroma of raw sugar, bourbon, toffee, wood, maple syrup and light booze. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of bourbon, wood and raw sugar. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really nice albeit maybe unnecessarily strong.

lillunken (62) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Köpt på Linköping beer expo. Väldigt stor och tung pjäs. Arom som en kraftig barley wine. Mycket av både humle och malt i smaken. Ganska söt och lite oljig eftersmak.

Shared bottle. Pours clear copper with creamy off-white head. Aroma is brown sugar, bready malts, light alcohol spice, toast, and some faint dark fruit notes. Flavor is boozy malt character, medium hop bitterness, light toast, and some barrel character. Medium/full body and medium carbonation.

I really enjoyed this beer. It was brewed back in 2012, so 3 years old. Not sure what it was like 3 years ago, but today it was fantastic. Sweet bread yeast aroma. Big malt taste with a log of fig raisin flavor. Excellent.
