Tasted in August 2010 on draft at the Twisted Spoke. Pour is clear orange amber with a thick white head that never truly goes away. Nose is sweet caramel with bitter orange peel, even more bitter hops, and a hint of honey. Flavor starts off with brown sugar and honey sweetness, and moves to bitter orange peel and hops. The body is big and thick with average carbonation and a long bitter hops and brown sugar finish. This is very hoppy for a barley wine, but still nicely balanced. The alcohol is hardly noticed until the bit of burn in my chest.
Serving type: on-tap

Cracked the cap on this with a vigorous pssshhhh. Huge biscuit and honey malts with fruit cake, juicy cherry, and plums. Demererra sugar and honey sweetness are prominent. No alcohol presence in this, and a nice thick chewy mouthfeel. Intense flavors that make for a delicious dessert, but glad I had someone to share the bomber with, as the sweetness could become a bit too much after 12 ounces.
