A small finger of just off white head sits on top of a mahogany reddish brown colored beer. The body looks thick and blurry when held up to the light. Its head quickly fades to a slick ring of lace. In the nose I get a big blast of sweet, rich, bready and somewhat fruity malt. Hops can also be found in the nose and they add just a touch of citrus. The flavor is like caramel covered raisins and baked apples with hints of plum and nectarine wrapped up in sweet bready and pie crust like maltiness. Add to this a nice warm boozy character and some mellow hops with modest notes of citrusy grapefruit rind and herbal bitterness. It feels quite firm on the palate and smooth but still lightly carbonated. angel77 (3246) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 16, 2014
Botella de 65 cl en el lúpulo en septiembre de 2012. barley wine con carácter, tonos dulces de toffes y caramelos tostados con un toque ligeramente especiado y con sabores finales a maderas empapadas. Cuerpo medio con 9.6 vol que se dejan notar en todo momento. Bastante buena y para repetir sin duda. Enwiebe (318) - - JUN 30, 2014
6/39/14. Bomber on close out from Sam's. Pours a reddish toffee with a thin head. Mild nose with a big sweet toffee and light coffee mouth. Lots of booziness to round it out.

Bomber, thanks sevenhokie! Sweet caramel and toffee malt aroma with some brown sugar and booze notes. Pours dark, cloudy copper colored with a thin white head and no lacing. Sweet toffee and caramel malt flavors with notes of dark fruit and brown sugar and a smooth mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with the brown sugary sweetness that lingers on the palate as well as a bit of alcohol. Excellent barleywine! bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2014
5 oz pour at 5-17 brewery public day. Poured a red/orange. Aroma was some citrus, toffee, hint of bourbon, caramel, and wood. Taste was sweet, but overall good. I got mainly the caramel and oak in it with citrus following in the background. Overall solid. Wouldn’t drink it daily, but it would be a nice treat here and there.
