Scored this goblet at Brewforia Meridian... I got a 32oz grower earlier that night... That will be enjoyed over the coming nights.

The brew is hazed amber... with a good tan head.. the retention is crap... lacing is only sorta okay...

Nose shows thick caramel and treacle.. hops are there and still pretty big... but huge boozy notes mesh in the mix with the caramel... HOT... HOPPY... the EtOH burns through the malt profile.

Flavor is a HUGE American Barleywine... The hop flavors bring the ruckus.. citrus and pine.. Then the lite toffee... caramel.. dusty toasty notes come out swinging... Still pretty flimsy malt profile.. punctuated by a healthy alcohol hit.

Never enough bitterness to really make the massive malts come together... too boozy and not thick enough for 13%.

I would love to see Fred make this one again... it could be a real big player with the geeks... Right now the HUGE malt and BIG pine hops are a novelty. I appreciate it as a GEEK .... Ditmier called this one a guilty pleasure... I agree.

3.5/3.5/4/3.5/4
