look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Serving Type: 22 oz Bomber poured into a Tulip Glass.
A: Pours a dark, leathery brown. Aggressive pour produces a thick, fomay head.
S: Boozy but sweet. I'm getting sweet brown sugar and honey. Slight hoppy character.
T: A sweet brown suagr/malt at the begining followed by just a touch of bitterness. Ending holds a sweet refreshing taste....
M: Full bodied brew and a big sipper or should be because this will knock you on your butt! Somewhat creamy in character.
D: Damn! This is very good!! I need to hunt down more of this...perhaps a case of it?
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
