look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours a reddish copper. Bulbbles tend to cling to the side of the glass and their are lots and lots of them. Very, very thin layer of head that rapidly falls apart

S - Whoa! Thats strong! I detect bouron, raisins, and pears with a caramel backbone!

T - Lots of bourbon and caramel upfront. Nice caramel flavor on the finish as well. In between im detecting winter fruits such as apples and pears

M - A very heavy beers. Good burn going down from the 10.5 abv. Very think. A sipper!

O - Excellent winter beer. One in more than enough! Great flavor and a good winter warmer!

22oz brown bomber with a vintage date of 2009 on it.

What it lacks in head retention it makes up for in a stunning brownish garnet clarity. Big malt in the nose, toasted bread with a think layer of caramel and figgy fruitiness. Lush creamy mouth feel, carbonation is light. Lots of sweetness is slowly tamed by the warming alcohol. Maltiness jumps from caramel to toasted bread to dried grass. Figgy fruitiness throughout. Finishes semi-sweet with a faint herbal hop flavor.

A tasty sipper, very well done ... worth a try for sure.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, hops, citrus, and slight yeast. Fits the style of an English Barleywine. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy with an average carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, sweet malt, slight hop, slight alcohol, and slight citrus. Overall, a good aroma, blend, and body.
