COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Launch into the exquisite flavors of bourbon with splashes of vanilla. Watch for currents of dark chocolate and dried fruit. Generous amounts of hops and malts make for a smooth journey from start to finish. Decadent desserts and aged cheeses make superb companions.

luttonm (6854) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. 2014 vintage it appears on the faded label. Good pop to the cork and a tall off-white foam with yellowed edges. Very dark copper brown. Nose is oxidized malt and vanilla. Smooth, full body with a nice tart bitterness. Rising flavors and bitterness brighten the body considerably. Lightly metallic malts form the backbone of this beer, a good copper note supporting a bittering hop and vanilla-syrup alcohol note. Despite the age it still has a snappy bite, bitter and slightly harsh. Very tasty, in nice shape. An interesting barley wine for sure. The barrel isn't too prominent but softens with vanilla and oak just a little. Oxidization might be a bit more than I'd like. Nice beer.

07-OCT-2017, bottle @home, from Systembolaget, with Ulkløbben.
Clear copper with a lasting tan head.
Huge hoppy Barley Wine. The full range of BW-dried-fruit-stuff. Nuts, caramel, and loads of hops. Sweet, but not all that much, bitter, full. GREAT!

Flaska från SB, provning med ölsällskapet. Mörk koppar/mahogny med fint gräddigt beigevitt skum. Doft av apelsinskal, fruktkaka, kolaremmar, marmelad, torkad frukt. Stor maffig kropp med en lätt fatkaraktär. Värmande smak med kola, apelsin, bränt socker och toner av bourbon och lönnsirap. Riktigt gott!

zoucrew102 (2156) - - SEP 11, 2017
Bomber, 2016 vintage. Caramel malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, bourbon and oak. Pours dark cloudy caramel colored with a tan head that has little retention and some lacing. Starts with rich caramel malt, dark fruit and dark chocolate flavors with a full body and dry mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and dry with vanilla, bourbon, oak and a good amount of warming booze that lingers long after each sip. More of a wintry beer, but pretty nice anytime.

Brewhemia (321) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2017
Delicious barley wine with amazing vinious aroma with loads of dried fruits, caramel and vanilla notes and with a touch a lightly roasted malt. The taste is fantastic as well. Lots of sweetness but a good amount of bitterness in the finish adds balance and as does the alcohol though. Though very high in alcohol it does in no way become dominant or unpleasant. Very well balanced in both aroma and taste and thus a fantastic beer in my opinion.
