#9 for the evening:

Black rubberized cap peels back nicely.

Nice crust of white foamy head floats on top of elegant crystal-mahogany color. Good clarity and faint lacing.

Pineapple, cherry, apple, oak, and vanilla. Sweet aromatics.

A near sugar bomb, but it's not. A solid offering from Hoppin' Frog. Lots of grape, plum, apple, cherry, vanilla. Very light carbonation with zero bitterness and high sweetness. Not very even, yet still refined and thought out.

Recommended for sure!!! Thanks Al for sharing a solid offering. Nicely developed and well-put-together.

Not sure why everyone regards this one as highly as they do, nor why its considered an english barleywine. It says right on the label Belgian Style Barleywine style. Lets think outside the box and style guidlines and ponder what that would really mean.... imo a quadrupel. Especially given the description on the label...which despite it not being a Belgian brewery, I have a good feeling they are subtlely refering to LA Trappe when they speak of a Belgian style strong, maly beer, aged on oak.

Oddly enough, the night before having this beer, I had a bottle of LA Trappe Oak Aged...and I have to say aside from the vanilla presence from the bourbon barrel aging, this beer was pretty much a dead ringer for a clone of La TRappe Quad. Cloying, strong fruitiness, booze, dark fruits, spices, sugar, basically a smooth but big sugar bomb.

So my verdict on this one; happy to have had it, but its over rated and wrongly labelled. If you like your beers big and sweet, this ones for you.
