Had on tap at the 10th Annual Southeastern Microbrewers Festival.
What a thorough and pleasant surprise to find this beer at this festival (shhhh...don't tell anyone that NC law limits beet to 6% abv).
Appears chestnut-deep garnet in color with a very creamy tan head. Quite a thick brew. Hops are the first to strike me in the aroma, also a roasted maltness appears too. Taste is thick, sweet and hoppy. There is a distinct malt flavor accompanied by a strong hops presence. Hops are the theme throughout this barleywine. Quite easy to drink, but served slightly too chilled.
Serving type: on-tap
