S: Bomber poured into wine glass. Served at 45*F.
A: Deep red-brown glow. Almost no head.
S: Very malty. Weak notes of caramel, molasses, and an almost unidentifiable floral smell.
T: Dominated by sweet malt. The hops could use a slight boost to get within style. The alcohol makes itself known but isn't harsh.
M: Smooth and thick, bordering on syrupy. Just enough carbonation to give a light sparkling on the tongue.
O: An above average example of a high gravity beer. It is slightly sweet for my taste, but fits the style well.
Serving type: bottle

This is good stuff. Cool color - HTML #43104 or so, transparency 95.
Minute foam that follows the beer to the bottom of the glass.
I eat barley in soup sometimes and I like it. I drink barley in beer sometimes and like it and this is one of the best beers with barley in it so far. So I really like it. You should get some.
This is strong but doesn't taste strong. Get a girl two glasses and she'll like you afterwards.
Serving type: on-tap
