Beer added by: MasterSki on 11-13-2012

We welcome the cold and greet these holiday-rich days with Quakerbridge Barley Wine. An incarnation of a Half Acre favorite, Marty Stouffer’s Wild America Barley Wine, this weighty beer is a choose-your-own-adventure experience. Freshly plugged, this beer is a hop guster to bring your holiday retreat to its knees, but time allows this brew to round and settle into an ever maltier bomb of balance. Whether your mug is beside a Thanksgiving gobbler or a holiday ham, let our bottled elixir join you and your family on its collision course of celebration. So, pull a cork and belly up to home – this hulk of a holiday hazer will settle any family retreat into a warming submission hold of mirth.

Really like Half Acre, but this beer was just ok. kind of boring actually. Very thin body for a barley wine. Also, very hoppy. Reminded me more of an IPA than a barely wine. Some minor touches of fruit. Most of the flavor though, came from the big floral notes.

Pours a murky amber red with a similar khaki red finger of foam.

Dark fruits, leather, tobacco, pine, and some slight citrus notes.

Heavy leather and tobacco flavors, citrus, dark fruit, and a hint of caramel.

Heavy bodied, medium carbonation, bitter earthiness, slightly fruity, finishes dry.

Overall, a bit too heavy on the earthy/herbal flavors, not enough hop to cut through the tobacco and leather flavors.
