Bomber from Party Source Syracuse NY for $7 - 2011 vintage

Appearance - Brown colour with a good size frothy beige coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, anise, dark fruits

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel and hops. There is also some vanilla, anise, booze, and dark fruits.

Overall - A little less sweet than I'm used to for a barleywine, but still a nice full flavour. The hos still have some bite but the beer still seems pretty smooth; guessing the age has mellowed this one. An okay beer but not even close the the heads of the class.
