had this on tap around el paso during my stint here. picked up a bottle to sip on as i await the cubs game and in celebration of moving back north in a couple e]weeks. nice brown red body with a thin tan head. booze in the nose with pepper and cherry. flavor is spiced raisin and a bit of dry wood. a bit of orange bitter with the sweet fruit in the finish. warming and definitely setting me on the path to a night of napping between innings.
22oz bottle from Spec’s Wine Spirits. IrishBoy (4238) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 28, 2017
Aroma is malty carmel with hint of barrel, some fruit - maybe old pineapple, and strong!
Pour is coppery-orange, with mostly white head, lingers on the edges.
Very malty-boozy, toffee, some hops bittering, brown sugar, slight date or raisin.
Solid for barley wine, but missing subtle character and complexity.
Aging defintly accentuates alcohol.
Bomber from Tavour. Nose is toffee, golden raisins, tobacco, and a hint of bubblegum. Clear rusty red with a medium lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet with contrasting bitterness, fruitiness, and nuttiness. coachd (947) - Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2017
Tart aroma with some chocolate, brown sugar, oak and booze. Murky amber color with no head. Tastes slightly hoppy with a good balance of malt sweetness and a clean aftertaste. The palate is excellent with just a tinge of carbonation. This was good. Some age on the bottle really smoothed it out. Ratman197 (15468) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2016

Smells great. Tons of molasses. Really drops off from there. The flavor is a decent. It’s a bit of molasses and some hops but also a bit plain. The hops are a a little below average. crajun (1268) - , Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2016

Bottle shared for Koelschtrinker’s 15k! Murky brown color with small tan head. Aroma is bourbony, figs, raisins. Taste is molasses, brown sugar, bittersweet, lots of stuff going on. More complex than my review. Not too sweet, a beautifully balanced Barley Wine!
