Apex Barleywine

<p>The latest in Bomber Brewing Company&rsquo;s seasonal offerings is the Apex Barleywine. This big, winter-inspired beer is a whopping 10.0% alcohol and is a step into the deep end for the relatively new, BC brewery. The Apex Barleywine pours as a copper coloured beer with two fingers of dense and lacing head. An aroma of an lightly oaked, barrel aged barley wine comes with &nbsp;a slight metallic tone and an alcohol kick making for a big and strong winter brew. A big body kicks off the flavour with a strong oak flavour along side an intense bitterness. A roasted, almost burnt flavour adds to the oaky body and hop bitterness to give a deep and intense flavour profile. The oak in this beer is subtle but still apparent &ndash; A slight sharpness in that earthy tone comes from the Cabernet Franc bottles used in the aging process. The Apex Barleywine is not overly boozy but is still a very intense beer. This is a great beer to warm you by a winter&rsquo;s fire or sip on a cold winter evening with friends.</p>
