(Had at the Brewpub. Listed as: Rye Barrel Aged Olde Gnarly Wine).
Hazy, medium-brown with an off-white head. Minimal carbonation. No head at all when served.
Rye bread, camomille tea, kirsch, pipe tobacco, molasses.
Dense on the palate with pipe tobacco, rye, mocha and milk chocolate, kirsch and orange marmalade.
Rich, creamy texture that carries on the palate.
Rich, robust, intense and very dense. Deep full flavor and a very long finish.
Serving type: on-tap

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
