"Born on 02/06/15". Pours a very dark ruby red with lasting, off-white head. Faint aromas of cherries, apples, and alcohol. Flavours bring alcohol up front followed by toffee, chocolate, cherry cough medicine, and a dry bitterness. Not a ton of complexity and the flavours are relatively light except the lingering roast and bitterness in the finish. beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - JUN 11, 2015

Hazy amber colour with a small creamy tan head.
Dark fruity hops and malty sweetness in the aroma.

Bomber. Caramel and dark fruit aroma with slight hints of citrus and pine resiny hops. Pours amber-orange with one finger of off white head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with good caramel and dark fruit flavors with a thinner body than expected for a barleywine. Finishes smooth and dry with pine resiny hops as well as some citrus. Solid American barleywine.

A quite nice barleywine. Pours a beautiful red with a thick white head. Smells of malt and raspberry and brown yeast. Taste is nice and malty, with a booziness and fruitiness and slightly hoppy finish. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - NOV 9, 2014

"booze, citrusy sweetness and bitter hops. not my favorite barleywine. not bad overall...barleywine is like pizza - even a bad one’s good, but this is a below average barleywine." CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bomber (9.5% ABV). Hazy brownish amber pour with a sudsy layer of off-white head. Mostly herbal hops, pine resin and caramel malt sweetness in the aroma. Taste is resiny hops, orange rind and caramel at the start along with some candied citrus, pine and toasted malt to round things out. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with soft carbonation and more resiny bitterness and dark sugars in the finish. Pretty good balance overall between the bitter hops and sweet malt characteristics.
