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.

Pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, some wood, oak and vanilla. Taste is sweetish with syrupy notes, warming alcohol, loads of malts, wood and oak notes. Finish is sweet and malty with some alcohol burning through and notes of syrup, wood and oaky notes. Quite complex and sweetish but still balanced and tasty.

BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle acquired via trade with Homer321...had to let my pops try this as he is a fan of rich and crazy sweet and this one didn’t disappoint! Fiery amber/burnt tangerine pour with a tightly packed eggshell foam. Nose isn’t quite as complex as I’d like but shows loads of vanilla bean, molasses, toffee, and maple syrup. Flavor is similar with the addition of some oak, honey-baked biscuit, and hints of cocoa. This one is quite sweet but I didn’t find it at all cloying and the ABV is masterfully (dangerously) hidden. Nice syrupy mouthfeel as well.

3.6
OmegaX (1375) - Florida, USA - APR 28, 2013
Aroma is thick caramel malts with a citrus/pine hop punch. Just like arrogant bastard but more caramel heavy. Body is thick and chewy. Sticky. Color is bronze/brown with a nice head. Very intense flavors of caramel and resinous hops behind an alcoholic mask. Good. Intense.
