look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

big bottle into maudite snifter

A - the head is a slightly off chite with a hint of the underlying orange. the body is a deep copper colour, is completely translucent but had a little turbidity so that is a a bit difficult to see through. I dont know what a bad wheatwine looks like, but the beer does look pretty good, so Ill give it the benefit of the doubt.

S - very full of hops. the hops range from an intense grapefruit bitterness, to a resiny pine freshness. there are some good caramel malts in the background. pretty intense with the hops, but not enough complexity.

T - tastes fine; I would hardly know that it has such a high abv. if it werent for the label. the initial taste is sweeter than I would have expected, this really comes out in the finish, however. the starting tastes are a wheaty hop combination, a citric bitterness yet a grainy wheat sweetness. definitely citrus notes, and the sweetness is a bit unfitting for the taste, but i am unfamiliar with the style. the finish is a piney hop bitterness with an increase in sweetness, getting a bit more like a sugar. the aftertaste is a good balance of sweet, malt, and hops, that leans toward sweetness.

MF&D - a good medium body, lacking sufficient carbonation. the drinkablity is fine, and it gets kudos for hiding all that alcohol, but it is behind a not so attractive and tasty sweetness, which gets a but sickly at times.

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.

Poured 5/1/12.

Nice head with a light amber color. Sticky foam. The aroma is light with oat sweetness and some hops. Very sweet, light malt smell. Nice. The flavor is very light for such a strong beer, with a taste like a sweet wort, followed by some grain astringency and some earthy hops. The mouthfeel is lighter than expected and finishes fairly dry. Overall this was an interesting and enjoyable beer, but not something I would particularly get excited about again.
