Bottle in trade from Burg. Thanks buddy. Pours dark amber red colored with a small off white head. Aroma of straight bready and sweet caramel malts, some toffee, I think they forgot the hops here. Let’s just assume this a session barleywine going into the taste. Flavor is watered down sweetness, not a single hop to be found. Light bodied and low to medium carbonation. Well, Alabama, you have your work cut out for you. No this isn’t offensive or off putting in any way, but there’s nearly no flavor and certainly no hops here. (Note: this was bottles 6/26/14 and poured 8/7/14 so it’s not as if this is way out of date or even close). Imagine what your mash would taste like when brewing, pour it in a bottle, and call it Freckle Belly. I’ve got to note that seeing the other ratings makes me think there is severe bottle variation on this one. A fun tick as usual and hope to try again on tap, as I hear it is worlds different. Hey, if this was listed as an English IPA, it might get a better rating from me. Alas, it seems very clearly meant to be an American IPA, which it misses on by a good mile or so. Again, not offensive or bad, just nothing much going on here.
