2013 bottle, 10.6%, into a Pipeworks snifter

Nice copper color, a little murky looking. Aroma is a good balance of malt and citrusy hops. Taste is initially malty and a bit sweet, a little brown sugar. Hops kick in on the way down, with a pretty strong, but pleasant hop bitterness on the back end. Good body for the style. Very enjoyable beer.

Smutty barley wine vintage 2013.
This beast pours a hazy orange with a THICK lightly tan off white head and astounding lacing.
The nose is of thick sweet malt, moderate hops, caramel, and moderately strong grain. Flavors
are big caramel malts up front. Nice fruity flavors abound with peaches smashing into a solid
wall of moderately bitter hops. Smooth mouth feel with a light sweetly bitter aftertaste.
A most excellent example, and one worth laying down for a number of years.
THIS is one BIG ale from the Smutty ones!

Cheers
