Brand fresh new bottle poured into a snifter a dark amber copper color with a tan head with sticky lacing.
Mostly Citrus nose with some toffee and alcohol.
More citrus with sweet malty caramel and toffee, pretty sweet overall. some floral notes sneaking in the backside also. is it wierd to say that it tastes like a lagunitas?
creamy and chewy and syrupy and mouth coating of a liquid.
the alcohol hides itself rather well and this helps give it a rather high drinkability for a 11% Barley wine, the hops are also not so bittering that it destroys the pallate too quickly. nice and easy drinking for an american barley wine for sure.
Serving type: bottle

2011 keg. 32oz growler fill from Green's PG, poured into a Conquest snifter.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, rich auburn body, with a half-inch of beige head. The head dissipates to just a ring, but laces through the life of the beer.
S: Caramel, and a lot of pine. Way more pine than I would have expected for a 3-4 year old beer.
T: The hops are not as bitter as might be expected from a fresh American barleywine, but they still take center stage here. Lots of pine, then caramel, followed by a little dark fruit mingling with pine again in the finish.
M: Big, lush, without being syrupy.
O: This is a really good, still hoppy barleywine after all these years. It reminds me of how Old Ruffian ages--very well.
Serving type: growler
