Vintage bottle received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a mostly clear deep golden bordering on amber with about one fingers worth of head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is mostly orange and cherries with bits of bread, grains, and brown sugar thrown in there. Hints of earthy hop aroma are still hanging on as is a touch of alcohol. There's a definite oxidized character setting in, but at this point its more sherry like than anything bad. The flavor is sweet with light and dark sugars, orange marmalade, light pitted fruits, and a hint of earthy hop flavor. Little to no hop bitterness is left. Medium to thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. I had this once before thanks to Mr Barleywine, I wish I had taken some notes then to compare to now. Drinks like an aged barleywine, but a bit on the sweet side. I fear that any more age will obliterate any hops that are left to balance this beer.

22oz into a goblet

A - Pours clear, bubbly. An amber to brown color. Brown head formation is light but sticks around with a little bit of lacing.

S - Incredibly malty, caramel, toffee, some sweet and floral notes. Very sweet profile overall. No boozy notes detected, a little surprising.

T - Starts off sweet and smooth, nice and malty. Hefty body. Mid-stream brings in an interesting citrus profile as well as just a little resin. This beer has had alot of time to mature. Finishes smooth and sweet, more of the toffee. Alcohol warmth is very noticable as it sits on the palette.

M - As noted above, this beer is very full bodied. Very sticky, very sweet, Alcohol hotness is very noticeable. carbonation is light.

O/D - A very good beer, the maltiness really melds together. The hopping is down, but thats probably because this sat in the cellar for way too long. If they made it again, I would buy it.

Sampled a 22oz Bomber on 5.2.2012

Appearance- Poured from the Bomber with a thin white head, which quickly receded to a haze layer and collar. The body was a crystal clear (filtered) orange-amber color, and exhibited some light bubble trains up the sides of the glass.

Aroma- A big, bold nose comprised of light fruits (pear, white grape, peach) over a big malty backbone. Not a bunch of complexity here, but it's big, bold, and inviting.

Flavor- A nice replicate of the nose-- big malts and light fruits hit the palate first. Some mild nuttiness is presented on the midpalate, presumably from the oats. And the finish is a bit on the mild side, with a brief echo of the light fruit again.

Mouthfeel- Surprisingly thin in body. For a beer called OatGOOP at 10.4% ABV, I would have expected a much fuller, chewier body. This was a bit disappointing. Carbonation was nice and mild; complimentary to the mouthfeel. Surprisingly there was no heat from the EtOH.

Overall- This beer is dangerously drinkable. In a blind tasting I would have guessed this one to weigh-in at 7 or 8% ABV. A good beer. I wouldn't turn it away if it were offered to me again.
